Hai Phong (VNA) – Constituents in Hong Bang district, Hai Phong city, expressed their trust in the Party’s leadership and the Government’s steering role in national socio-economic issues while meeting with Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc and other National Assembly (NA) deputies of the northern city on May 13.

The meeting took place ahead of the fifth session of the 14th-tenure parliament, slated for later this month.

Local people applauded unceasing efforts by the PM and the Cabinet in building an incorruptible Government that acts for the sake of people and businesses.

Do Viet Hung, a resident in Quan Toan ward, voiced his delight at the national development in recent years thanks to the Party and the NA’s leadership and the Government’s drastic and effective actions. He noted that the PM and the Government have done a good job of managing and steering socio-economic aspects, firmly ensuring national defence-security, and enhancing investors’ trust.

Welcoming strong moves to improve the business climate, voter Bui Cong Phu in Pham Hong Thai ward asked for more concrete policies to support start-ups, increase new enterprises and promote domestic firms’ competitiveness.

Meanwhile, many participants spoke highly of the measures taken by the Central Steering Committee for Anti-Corruption, the NA, the Government, and especially Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong to fight corruption since 2017.

Dong Xuan Hien, a voter in Hoang Van Thu ward, called on the NA to include more comprehensive and detailed regulations on measures to monitor officials’ assets while revising the anti-corruption law.

At the meeting, PM Phuc appreciated local residents’ opinions on various spheres. He informed about the freshly-concluded seventh plenary session of the 12th-tenure Party Central Committee, with the adoption of three important resolutions on building the cadre contingent, reforming the salary policy, and reforming the social insurance policy.

He said the approaching fifth session of the National Assembly will look into lawmaking, socio-economic affairs and many other important issues.

In the first four months of 2018, the macro-economy remained stable while inflation was under control when it grew by 1.34 percent and the consumer price index rose 2.8 percent year on year.

The PM said the Government is focusing on fine-tuning policies to better meet requirements of the socio-economic management and steering tasks.

Lauding local constituents’ opinions on the anti-corruption determination and the settlement of serious cases, he said he and other NA deputies are also very interested in this matter and committed to conveying voters’ corruption fighting spirit to the NA and the Government so as to better meet people’s aspirations.

On behalf of NA deputies of Hai Phong, PM Phuc also fielded questions and opinions about mechanisms and policies for education, public investment, and funding for some projects, particularly the construction of a coastal road linking Hai Phong city and five northern provinces.-VNA
