HA NOI (VNS)— Voters in two districts in the northern central Nghe An Province raised concerns about rampant corruption when they met with National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung in their hometown yesterday.
The voters, based in the two disadvantaged districts of Loc Ha and Nghi Xuan, spoke highly of the NA for ratifying the revised Law on Corruption Prevention and Control during its fourth session last week.
But they also appealed the government to make greater efforts to eradicate the problem so as to bolster people's confidence in the leadership of the Party and convince them that the Government can truly bring about socio-economic development.
The voters suggested leaders view the anti-corruption fight as a battle against "internal invaders".
They also asked for greater support for local coastline residents to develop aqua-culture farming - one of the area's major strengths, and an industry that has contributed much to its economic growth.
NA Chairman Hung responded to the voters' concerns by saying that the fight against corruption was a long and tough task, which also required the participation of those at the grassroots level.
He also urged local administrations to create more infrastructure for developing agriculture and seafood farming and offer support policies to farmers whose land was reclaimed for development projects.
Hung also reminded localities to carry out the newly-adopted resolution on casting votes of confidence for top national and local positions that takes effect early next year. — VNS
