Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung and National Assembly (NA) deputies in the northern city of Hai Phong met with voters in Kien An district on October 3, who voiced their hopes that the NA’s 8 th session, beginning later this month, would make sound decisions in a bid to foster national socio-economic development.

Voter Dinh Dang Hung from Bac Son ward suggested more attention be paid to low-income households in rural areas, individuals who served the country during the war, and Agent Orange/dioxin victims.

Nguyen Huy Truong from Lang Ha ward called for the acceleration of the construction of national infrastructure projects, particularly traffic facilities, in Hai Phong.

Meanwhile, other opinions highlighted the need for more investments in improving the quality of education, building accommodation for students, and training local medical staff.

On behalf of Hai Phong’s NA deputies, PM Nguyen Tan Dung said the feedback was constructive and demonstrated voters’ sense of responsibility for socio-economic development in their city and Vietnam in general.

Informing voters on the country’s situation, the Cabinet leader said the Government, ministries and localities would do their utmost to achieve this year’s socio-economic targets with a focus on facilitating production, stabilising the macroeconomy, and mobilising resources for development.

He also pledged his support for developing education and training, ensuring social welfare, guaranteeing political security and social safety, safeguarding national independence and sovereignty, and protecting a peaceful and stable environment for national development.

In the meeting, he requested Hai Phong authorities make full use of all their resources to improve traffic infrastructure and look after the beneficiaries of social policy better, including Agent Orange/dioxin victims.

PM Nguyen Tan Dung also looked into the issues that concerned voters, including the development of education, constructing student dormitories, ensuring the profitability of the textile and garment sector, and reducing overcrowding at hospitals.-VNA
