Hanoi (VNA) – Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has asked the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee (VFFCC) to continue working as an adviser to the Government on implementing socio-economic development tasks in 2016.

The leader made the appeal while chairing a conference on coordination between the Government and the VFFCC in Hanoi on March 30, where he said attention should be paid to patriotic emulation movements.

He underscored the need for the front to perform better in supervision and social criticism activities in a bid to promote people’s rights to democracy and self-mastery.

Mentioning the two sides’ collaboration in anti-corruption, PM Nguyen Tan Dung highlighted building a State of the rule of law, completing policies and mechanisms, and setting up a firm political system as the most fundamental solutions to corruption.

At the conference, the two sectors agreed to continue their joint efforts in strengthening the great national unity bloc and social consensus, increasing patriotic emulation drives, stabilising the macro-economy and ensuring social welfare.

They will also coordinate with each other in supervision and social criticism work, Party building, the fight against corruption and wastefulness, law making and policy development.

The conference heard that in 2015, the close coordination and trust between the Government and the VFFCC contributed to fulfilling national development targets, particularly those on new-style rural area building and sustainable poverty reduction.

According to VFFCC President Nguyen Thien Nhan, last year, the VFF implemented eight major supervisory programmes with the most worthy of note being the programme that review the Government’s policies to support people who rendered services to the revolution.

However, the conference heard, limitations still remained in their affiliation in disseminating the Party’s guidelines and the State’s policies and laws, and handling public concerns, among others.

On this occasion, PM Nguyen Tan Dung and VFFCC President Nguyen Thien Nhan inked a programme of coordination in promoting food safety during the 2016-2020 period.

Accordingly, the two sides will propose amending and supplementing relevant policies and laws in order to ensure the efficiency of State management in this field.

The programme aims to have over 60 percent of farming and food processing households, and all cooperatives and production facilities recognised as meeting food safety standards by 2020.-VNA
