National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung met with voters working in armed forces in the central province of Ha Tinh on December 9.

Voters said they are delighted at the success of the recently-ended eighth session of the 13 th National Assembly, which saw many positive changes in legislative activities.

They appreciated Q&A sessions and the vote of confidence on 50 officials holding positions elected or approved by the NA.

The voters also expressed their hope that the legislature will increase budget for defence-security and crime prevention while paying more attention to the patrol and safeguarding of border markers as well as the life of border guard officers in far-flung areas.

Congratulating Ha Tinh officers and soldiers on the 70 th founding anniversary of the Vietnam People’s Army and the 20 th All-People’s Defence Day (December 22), the NA leader affirmed that the Party and State always pay special attention to ensuring defence and security, especially in the context of the unpredictable political and security situation of the world and the region.

With the 2013 Constitution coming into effect early this year, Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung expressed hope for more involvement of Ha Tinh’s armed forces in perfecting the law system in order to facilitate the enforcement of the constitution.

The military, police and customs forces were also requested to stay ready to timely deal with social and political disorders.

Earlier, NA Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung and the province’s leaders visited the Vung Ang Economic Zone in Ky Anh district to inspect the construction of several key projects there.

More than 220 businesses have to date received investment licenses in this zone.-VNA
