Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung on May 16 met with voters in Thuy Nguyen district, in the northern port city of Hai Phong, ahead of the National Assembly’s third session, scheduled to open on May 21.

At the meeting, voters expressed their joyfulness with recent comprehensive results gained by the Party, army and people in national construction and socio-economic development, saying that the outcomes will be an important encouragement for the country to firmly advance on the road of modernisation and integration, despite difficulties from global crises.

They proposed the NA increase supervision of Party and State policy implementation at grassroots levels, particularly environmental protection.

The NA should ensure social welfare, devise common infrastructure system plans, renew rural areas and oversee the execution of the Land Law, they said.

Regarding rural development, voters suggested the Government pay more attention to investing in rural transport systems, schools, water supply, irrigation stations, medical centres, education and vocational training and job generation for local people.

They asked the Government to continue assisting fishermen as well as devising appropriate mechanisms and policies and solving shortcomings relating to land policy, especially when the Government revokes land for site clearance.

Additionally, they said they want the Government to pay more attention to guiding solutions to ease difficulties for small-and medium-sized enterprises and to promoting production.

Providing a briefing on the country’s socio-economic development, PM Dung affirmed that the Government is determined to meet all socio-economic targets for this year.

At the meeting, the PM clarified issues of interest for voters, such as economic restructuring, social welfare, heath, education, poverty reduction, administrative procedure reform, settlement of complaints and denunciations, and the implementation of the Land Law.

He affirmed he will do his utmost to fulfil the mission assigned by the Party, State and voters.-VNA
