National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung asked authorities of Ky Anh town in central Ha Tinh province to include employment and vocational training in the locality’s socio-economic development while meeting with local voters on July 7.

Priority should be given to new-style rural area building, he said, as it will help ensure livelihoods and increase local income.

Responding to voters’ queries on nation-building and safeguarding policies, the top legislator affirmed the resolved will and spirit of the Party, State and people to protect national sovereignty and maintain peace.

As an active and responsible member of the United Nations, Vietnam continually wishes to expand its relations with other countries around the world for the purpose of maintaining peace in the nation, region and world, he added.

Regarding important contents of the recently-finished ninth session of the 13th National Assembly, he said that the legislature will prioritise improving the legal system in line with the 2013 Constitution.

He expressed his hope that voters in Ky Anh would join others nationwide to contribute their opinions and proposals to revised draft laws in order to promote the efficiency of laws in daily life.

Located in south Ha Tinh, Ky Anh town has risen to become one of the key economic centres of the province and the northern central region with the Vung Ang Economic Zone.

Local voters asked for the acceleration of construction on infrastructure development projects, especially those involving transport around the Vung Ang economic zone.

They also suggested the National Assembly pay attention to policies that serve marine economic development and support fishermen, as well as measures to respond to climate change and salt water intrusion.-VNA
