HÀ NỘI (VNS) — Party General Secretary Nguyễn Phú Trọng joined National Assembly members in Hà Nội in a meeting with voters from Ba Đình, Hoàn Kiếm and Tây Hồ districts yesterday.
Some voters lauded the outcomes of the 12th National Party Congress. Guidelines and policies set forth at the congress received positive feedback.
However, people also voiced concern on issues related to the signing of bilateral and multilateral agreements with foreign partners, suggesting that the country must manage the domestic market and improve the competitiveness of Vietnamese goods.
They stressed the need to promote equitisation of State-owned enterprises, and adopt preferential policies for the private sector - especially those concerning capital and land leasing - in order to facilitate private firms’ development.
More drastic measures are needed to repel corruption and wastefulness, voters said, noting that efforts should be strengthened to improve the quality of inspectors at all levels, aiming to create a breakthrough in the fight on corruption.
They also voiced their opinions on the draft revised Press Law, stressing the need to enhance management of individual web pages to prevent the publication of anti-State and anti-Party sentiments.
Some said the Government would need to clearly define the responsibilities of agencies and organisations in providing information for the media. There needed to be punishments for actions obstructing press activities, voters said.
They also shared concerns about food safety and the increasing prevalence of cancer.
Acknowledging voters’ opinions, the Party chief said their ideas and suggestions would help NA deputies improve.
In his reply related to the coming elections of the 13th NA and People’s Councils, the Party Chief said he agreed with voters on the need to select meritorious candidates.
Voters must elect the most worthy candidates in this important political event, he stressed. — VNS
