Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung met with Hai An district voters in the northern port city of Hai Phong on March 31, to listen to their opinions.

The voters highlighted the Government and PM’s efforts in governing the country to obtain a high economic growth rate, further improvement in people’s living conditions and the increasing position of the country on the international arena.

They also proposed the Government pay more attention to people’s daily life, particularly low-income earners who are under financial pressure after recent price hikes.

The Government should continue speeding up administrative reform, anti-corruption, improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the State apparatus, and helping Hai Phong accelerate infrastructural construction, particularly Hai Phong’s sea port and terminal system and the Hanoi-Hai Phong expressway, they said.

PM Dung took the occasion to brief voters on the results of the ninth session of the 12 th NA and the implementation of socio-economic development targets of the past term.

The Government, ministries, branches and local authorities have exerted efforts in socio-economic management, with priorities given to curb inflation, stabilise the macro-economy, ensure social welfare and maintain a logical growth rate, he said.

He affirmed that the Government always attaches importance to administrative reform, anti-corruption and improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the administrative apparatus.

The PM also said the Government has instructed ministries and branches to actively collaborate with localities to synchronously build and modernise Hai Phong’s sea port system, devise the Yen Lang international airport scheme, upgrade the Hanoi-Hai Phong railway and speed up the construction pace of urgent traffic routes, especially the Hanoi-Hai Phong expressway, which will be operational soon.

The same day, PM Dung visited the Vietnam-Singapore economic zone which was zoned off for an urban, industrial and service area on 1,600ha./.
