Can Tho’s voters showed their special attention to issues related to corruption, toll in BOT roads, food safety, and green agriculture when meeting National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan on September 27. 

Many voters pointed to difficulties in making birth certificate and family registration for children of Vietnamese-foreign parents. 

In reply, the top legislator assigned Can Tho to review this group of children to ensure they access schooling and all of their rights.

Answering the question of voter Tran Thanh Phong from Tan Hoi commune on the anti-corruption progress, the NA leader said that in the next meeting, the NA will make amendments to the Anti-Corruption Law.

In response to queries on measures to deal with unreasonable toll in some toll plazas along national highways, she said that the Government and the Ministry of Transport are reviewing the fee for timely adjustments.
