Voters in the northern mountainous provinces of Lang Son and Cao Bang have met with the deputies to the National Assembly’s upcoming sixth meeting, asking them to convey an array of their issues needing the law-making body’s answer.

Voters in Lang Son have voiced the need for the continued socio-economic development investment in mountainous and remote areas and the review of implementation of policies on education, healthcare and job generation for ethnic minorities.

They underlined the necessity of focusing all resources on building essential infrastructural facilities, like power lines, drinking water pipes, and bridges to ensure long-term benefits for local people.

They also gave their opinions on policies on salary and housing assistance for officials serving in military and police units, as well as support policies for residents in boundary areas.

Meanwhile, voters in the neighbouring province of Cao Bang voiced their wish to receive support policies for sustainable poverty reduction in mountainous and remote areas.

They asked for assistance in seeking markets for agricultural products, further developing the agriculture sector, and building and upgrading infrastructure, especially transport and water supply systems, in mountainous areas.

Besides, the voters suggested that the sending of teachers to remote areas should be implemented more properly to increase education efficiency and the procedures on educational fee reduction for poor students should be further simplified.-VNA
