Voters satisfied with NA’s social welfare policies

Voters in central Ha Tinh province’s Cam Xuyen district stated on October 3 that the National Assembly (NA)’s social welfare policies aimed at workers and communities in rural areas had helped improve living standards.

In a meeting with NA Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung, voters suggested the NA and Government pay more attention to improving the capacity and quality of officials at local level, to increasing the efficiency of State management and to tackling corruption head on.

Some said the Government should balance domestic agricultural production and agricultural imports in order to take full advantage of Vietnam’s position as the world’s leading exporter of rice, thus increasing farmers’ incomes. 

Local voters also urged the NA and authorised agencies to upgrade transport and irrigational infrastructure in concentrated production zones and to develop more preferential policies that encourage businesses and farmers to boost production and distribution links and develop fishery logistics services. 

Speaking of voters’ opinions, NA Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung asked Ha Tinh province’s leaders to actively implement the State’s policy to support Can Xuyen fishermen in developing offshore fishing. 

The province should combine the processes of changing economic structure and production models, and consider building urban areas in line with each locality’s characteristics, he said. 

The NA leader also asked for further participation of voters in implementing the Constitution, improving the legal system and fine-tuning the legislative body’s operations. 

Cam Xuyen district recorded positive economic growth over the past years. The poverty rate declined from 25.53% in 2011 to 9.43% at present. Income per capita is estimated at VND25 million (US$1,175) per year.
