President Truong Tan Sang on October 14 met with voters in Ho Chi Minh City’s District 1 and 3, who contributed constructive ideas to addressing pressing socio-economic issues facing the country.

The voters sought the President’s explanation for high inventories of locally-made goods and home businesses’ incapacity of producing spare parts for foreign companies.

They expressed their hope that the State will adopt policies to get more scientists involved in studies on applied production to raise local products’ competitive edge.

Many proposed increasing the number of full-time NA deputies and stopping the promulgation of impractical legal documents.

President Truong Tan Sang appreciated the voters’ proposals, assuring them that the National Assembly will pay special attention to perfecting the institution in the time ahead.

He informed the voters that in its upcoming 8th session of the 13 th tenure, the law-making body is scheduled to pass 17 draft laws, with many supporting the national economy’s growth.

He also told them that the legislative body had strengthened its inspection operation and will reform the implementation of this important function.

Combating and preventing corruption remains a priority, the President affirmed, appealing the voters to collaborate with the public authorised agencies in this work.

On the occasion, the State leader also asked municipal authorities to take more drastic measures to fight social vices and maintain a healthy social environment.-VNA
