HA NOI (VNS)— Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung asked leaders of Hai Phong City yesterday to continue helping enterprises to develop production, decrease inventories and extend their market.
The city, he advised, should focus on stabilizing the macro-economy, maintaining steady growth, ensuring social security and creating jobs for the unemployed.
Land clearance, administrative reforms for investment, construction, land management and implementation of key projects, especially the Ha Noi-Hai Phong Highway, should also be priorities for the city, he said.
Chairman of the city's People's Committee Duong Anh Dien said the city has worked out plans for the tasks mentioned above.
The city has set specific goals for next year including increasing its Gross Domestic Product by 8.5-9.0 per cent, increasing the number of goods imported via port by 51 million tonnes, creating 51,000 jobs and cutting the number of poor families to 3.15 per cent.
The PM asked relevant agencies and ministries to provide feedback on the city's funding proposals for key traffic and irrigation projects.
On the same day, Prime Minister Dung also spoke with the city's voters to hear their worries about education and training, job creation for rural labourers, support for resettled residents and social security.
PM Dung affirmed that the Party and State always consider education the most important area for national policy, as it plays a key role in the country's industrialization and modernization process.
He said the government would keep paying attention to the development of education and training.
He also said that the government would ask relevant agencies and ministries to keep implementing measures to ensure social security, give health care to more people and help enterprises to do their business.
During his talks, he offered voters thorough explanations of issues related to management of foreign labourers in Viet Nam and compensation prices for land reclaimation.
Voters also expressed their pleasure about the results of the fourth session of the 13th National Assembly. — VNS
