HA NOI (VNS)— Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong met with voters in Tay Ho and Hoan Kiem Districts on Saturday in preparation for the sixth session of the National Assembly scheduled to start next month.

Voters said they hoped that during the upcoming session, the land law would be amended so that land management would be strengthened, contributing to the national fight against corruption. They also anticipated new policies on rational compensation and resettlement support.

As for macro-economic management, voters questioned the efficiency of the restructuring of State-owned enterprises and complained that corruption remained rampant, State officials were not as efficient as they could be and jobs were being created too slowly.

Trong took note of their ideas, especially those on mass mobilisation, religious work, the building of administrations at various levels and grassroots inspections. He affirmed that the Party and State were determined to combat corruption and wastefulness.

The Party chief also briefed voters on the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations, the situation in the East Sea and the Party and State's stance on solving the disputes and maintaining peace in the sea while safeguarding the country's independence and sovereignty over the sea and islands.

On the same day, National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung travelled to the central province of Ha Tinh to inspect the Vung Ang Economic Zone and listen to the thoughts and proposals of voters there.

Hung said the Government had introduced measures to promote industrial and economic zones nationwide, including in Vung Ang, the industrial hub of the north-central region.

Local voters expressed pleasure at the positive changes made to the NA's law-making and supervisory procedures.

They asked authorities in Ha Tinh province and Ky Anh district, home to the economic zone, to provide more vocational training, especially for labourers working in industrial development. They also requested that authorities do more to improve living conditions and job prospects for people living in resettlement areas.

The Chairman agreed that Ky Anh must pay more attention to site clearance and the resettlement of residents throughout construction developments in the district. — VNS
