Vinh Long (VNA) – Acting President Dang Thi Ngoc Thinh on October 8 met voters in four communes of Tam Binh district, the Mekong Delta province of Vinh Long to listen to their opinions before the sixth session of the 14th National Assembly.

The majority of the voters said they hope the Party and State will continue applying drastic measures against corruption and strictly handle violators.

They raised their concern about the current drug trafficking and abuse which harm social order in the locality. They asked the NA, Government and the province to seek stronger solutions to deal with the trading of fake and poor quality fertilisers, along with problems in food safety and domestic violence.

The voters also proposed that the Government pay more attention to adjustments in wage and allowance for communal officials as well as retired and elderly people.

At the meeting, Acting President Thinh told the voters that so far, the country has completed all 12 socio-economic targets, with four exceeding the goals.

Particularly, Vietnam’s economic growth is likely to reach 6.98 percent, while 39 percent of total communes and 55 districts of 28 provinces have finished all criteria for new-style rural areas.

Noting that in the past nine months, drug-related crimes rose 11 percent in both the number of case and criminals, she pledged that the problem will continue to be settled drastically, aiming to reduce supply, demand and criminals. -VNA
