HA NOI (VNS) — Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong met voters in Ha Noi's Ba Dinh and Tay Ho districts yesterday in the run up to the eighth session of the 13th National Assembly.
During the meeting, voters provided feedback on a number of issues, including safeguarding national sovereignty as well as maritime economic development, land management, agricultural development, rural areas, and improvements to farmers' living conditions.
They also expressed opinions on monitoring officials and rotating them from the central level to localities.
Many expressed concern over educational reform, saying that the compilation of textbooks should be done carefully to avoid mistakes and a learning overload for students.
They also called for more attention to vocational training to improve the quality of the work force.
Voters also declared their interest in the fight against corruption and inefficiency. They asked for closer supervision of the leaders of State agencies.
Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong said that during the eighth session, the NA would question the leaders of ministries and sectors, whilst conducting votes of confidence for all posts elected and approved by the NA.
He said boosting the maritime economy and protecting the sea and islands was a matter of strategic importance, adding that a master plan had been made for maritime economic growth and that investments had been allocated.
The Party leader said the farming sector would be supported in its transition towards large-scale operations. Advanced technology would be used to achieve this goal.
The Party chief highlighted the significance of training workers and developing the capacity of central officials by sending them to different localities for practical experience.
He also acknowledged the policy of listing the assets of officials to fight corruption. — VNS
