CẦN THƠ — National Assembly (NA) Chairwoman Nguyễn Thị Kim Ngân met voters from Cái Răng and Phong Điền districts, in the Mekong Delta city of Cần Thơ, yesterday to inform them about the outcomes of the recently-ended third session of the 14th legislature.
Voters raised more than 30 comments and questions regarding site clearance and compensation for displaced residents, employment, rural infrastructure, health insurance and vocational training, which were answered by local authorities.
On suggestions about site clearance and compensation, Ngân asked the municipal authorities to protect people’s interests in the spirit of placing their interests above others and in line with the Law on Land while seeking solutions to harmonise the interests of parties concerned.
Sharing concerns over food security in the face of site clearance for industrial zones and urban development, she said as part of the agricultural restructuring plan, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development has zoned off rice cultivation acreage to ensure national food security. The NA also issued a resolution to guarantee 3.8 million ha of rice farming.
She also explained regulations on lending for hi-tech production, saying that incentives are provided for projects with outcomes certified by local authorities.
The top legislator also answered questions regarding effective exploitation of Cần Thơ Airport, expansion of international Tân Sơn Nhất Airport, construction of Long Thành Airport, and the management of information on social media.
On the occasion, she also visited and presented gifts to several policy beneficiaries in Cần Thơ city and Phong Điền district.
On the same day, National Assembly delegations in other cities and provinces including Tiền Giang, Hậu Giang, Đà Nẵng and Thái Nguyên also met with local voters to listen to people’s opinions and concerns. The delegations collected all opinions and recommendations from voters to send to relevant agencies for consideration and solutions. — VNS
