National Assembly (NA) deputies from Tuyen Quang, Quang Nam, Phu Yen and Binh Duong provinces met with local voters to hear their opinions on a series of issues, focusing on socio-economic development, education and training, lawmaking and social welfare policies.

Voters in northern Tuyen Quang province contributed a number of ideas on increasing investment in infrastructure facilities, building coordination mechanisms in forest management and border protection, improving the quality of education and training and ensuring job for labourers.

They encouraged the NA and relevant agencies to pay more attention to improving living conditions for people in resettlement zones, improving the quality of medical services at the local level, upgrading electrical systems in rural areas, promoting agricultural production and seeking additional markets for farm products.

Meanwhile, voters in the central province of Quang Nam emphasised the necessity of applying macro-management policies to the animal feed industry while intensifying support for domestic cattle feed producers to promote the sector’s development.

They also suggested offering low-interest loans to farm households, encouraging farmers to join safe-food supply chains, incentivising enterprises to invest in agriculture and promoting the application of science and technology in agro-economic development.

Increasing the efficiency of lawmaking was the major focus for voters in the coastal central province of Phu Yen.

Voter Pham Ngoc Chi, former Chairwoman of the provincial People’s Committee, said Government leaders and local authorities should engage in regular dialogues with their constituents to design appropriate policies. She also gave her opinions on the revised Law on the Organisation of the Government.

Local voters stressed the need to ensure the community’s opinions are gathered and considered in the drafting of legal documents, saying final laws should reflect the rights of individuals and benefit the community.

They also expressed interest in policies for ethnic minority groups and revolutionaries and their families, among others.

Voters in the southern province of Binh Duong voiced concern over stable markets for local farm products, traffic accidents, environmental pollution and controversies in applying the Law on Social Insurance.-VNA
