Can Tho (VNA) – National Assembly (NA) Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan met with voters in Cai Rang and Phong Dien districts of the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho on August 5 to inform them of the outcomes of the 14 th NA’s first session and listen to their concerns.

At the meeting, local voters showed their concerns about numerous issues, including policies for people who rendered service to the nation, health insurance, protection of sovereignty over the nation’s sea and islands, environmental pollution, supervisions over road toll collection and food safety.

Regarding the environmental pollution, particularly the risk of polluting the region’s water resources by a planned paper plant project in Hau Giang province, NA Chairwoman Ngan said that from the recent environmental incident in the central coast, Vietnam had learnt a lesson in investment attraction, which is developing the economy and protecting the environment at the same time.

The paper plant project is in control, she said, adding that the plant will have to ensure its waste is treated carefully to not affect the water resources of the Hau river once it begins operational.

Road toll collection and food safety and hygiene have been put into the NA Standing Committee’s supervision programme, the top legislator stated.

She shared with voters that in 2017, the legislature will intensify supervision over the implementation of laws and policies related to food safety and also over investment in transport facilities.

The NA leader appreciated voters’ opinions on the fight against corruption.

The Central Steering Committee on Corruption Prevention and Control is directing investigations into several corruption cases and some works whose production is causing losses for the State.-VNA
