Can Tho (VNA) – National Assembly (NA) Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan clarified a number of concerns raised by voters from the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho during their meetings from May 4-7.

Constituents from Ninh Kieu, Cai Rang and Phong Dien districts as well as those from Can Tho University expressed their confidence in the candidates selected to stand for the 14th legislature.

They said they hope the future deputies will pay much attention to improving the legal system and bringing Vietnamese law into force in a stable, strict and long-term manner.

The voters proposed the State devise policies to draw more foreign investments in the city’s key socio-economic projects such as Cai Cu Port and Hau River Southern Highway.

They also suggested measures to seek markets for farm produce, deal with counterfeit and low-quality products, increase food hygiene and safety, and cope with climate change, drought and saltwater intrusion in the Mekong Delta, and address environmental pollution at industrial parks and residential areas.

It is equally important to develop science-technology, improve education and vocational training, and take good care of impoverished households and social welfare families.

The NA Chairwoman took note of the aforesaid proposals and said she will work with the NA Standing Committee to improve the legal system and build the parliament closer to people and more transparent.

She confirmed to work with local authorities to develop Can Tho into a socio-economic, science and education hub in the Mekong Delta.-VNA
