NA Chairwoman meets voters in Can Tho

National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan and deputies representing the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho met with local voters on September 26 in the run-up to the fourth session of the 14th National Assembly.

Voters from Cai Rang and Ninh Kieu districts raised their voices on the issues pertaining to environmental protection, food safety, corruption fight, BOT toll stations, health insurance, jobs for university graduates, among others.

Ngan told the voters that the NA will ask the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment to monitor businesses’ production process more closely, saying production must be terminated if their owners are found to violate environmental protection regulations.

Regarding the fight against corruption, including the retrieval of corrupt assets, the leader said the NA will consider supplementing and amending the Law on Corruption Prevention and Combat so punishments can serve as a strong warning.

She said the Party and State have paid heed to the anti-corruption effort and the Central Steering Committee for Anti-Corruption will continue bringing more corrupt cases to light.

She assured the voters that the law-making body will work to fine-tune the legal system to support the application of the Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) model in service of the country’s infrastructure development and mobilize capital resources in society for the work, especially for transport infrastructure.

The leader also fielded the issue on farming production to ensure food security and export in the Mekong delta.
