HÀ NỘI — The Government’s success can always be attributed to significant contributions from the Viet Nam Fatherland Front, Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc said yesterday.
He was speaking at a joint conference between the Government and Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee (VFFCC) held in Ha Noi to review their cooperation last year and set out new tasks for 2017.
The meeting was co-chaired by the PM and VFFCC President Nguyễn Thiện Nhân.
Participants said 2016 saw effective co-ordination between both sides, particularly in organising campaigns for sustainable poverty alleviation, building new-style rural areas, encouraging Vietnamese to use Vietnamese goods and protecting the environment.
Nhân highlighted his agency’s full involvement in implementing policies issued by the Party and Government through the years.
He cited as an example the handling of public petitions, when the VFFCC sent its representatives and lawyers to attend meetings between the people, State inspectorate and internal affairs agencies.
Phúc stressed that the Government’s success is always attributable to significant contributions from the VFF, adding that joint work by both sides had helped boost socio-economic development last year.
He urged that they strengthen co-operation in building a transparent Party and administration, focusing on deterring corruption, degradation and wastefulness.
He called on agencies to make public their inspection results for the VFF and the press to monitor.
He said it was also necessary to jointly launch social campaigns that have far-reaching impacts on building new-style rural areas, supporting the poor and boosting domestic consumption of locally-made products. — VNS
