President Truong Tan Sang underscored the Party and State’s consistent policy of global economic integration, saying that only an open-door strategy can stimulate development, at a meeting with voters in Ho Chi Minh City’s districts 1 and 3 on October 11.

President Sang said a range of solutions have proved effective over the past time with inflation being curbed. However, business shut-downs have ground production to a halt on a large scale and left inventories piling up, he noted, adding that these need to be tackled during the final years of the five-year plan.

Voters shared the view that the socio-economic situation has become stable but many fields have yet to see significant improvements. Overall, the economy remains saddled with bad debts and inventories.

They expressed hope that the legislative body will adopt the draft amendments to the 1992 Constitution soon, thus laying a foundation to perfect the legal values of law documents.

A majority of them suggested the NA pay heed to the pilot urban administration model, which according to them, should be rolled out across the city quickly.

They also took the occasion to call for transparent information on petrol, gas and electricity so that it will be easier for them to supervise the Government’s operations.

The same day, Head of the Party Central Committee’s Organisation Commission To Huy Rua met with voters in Dong Ky ward, Tu Son town in the northern province of Bac Ninh.-VNA
