CẦN THƠ – National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyễn Thị Kim Ngân and deputies met voters from Vĩnh Thạnh and Ninh Kiều districts in the Mekong Delta city of Cần Thơ on Wednesday.
Voters raised issues of concern in connection with rural road transport, hygiene and environment, food safety and farm produce prices, as well as sand exploitation, medical insurance, gender equality, mass mobilisation, public and bad debts, among others.
The chairwoman took note of a proposal to offer more support to martyrs’ mothers in rural areas. She also vowed to ask the government to closely monitor sand exploitation.
Ngân assured voters about environmental protection at the Lee & Man paper mill built in the southern province of Hậu Giang, saying that relevant agencies have inspected wastewater and production at the mill and released a report assessing its environment impact. At the same time, an automatic exhaust gas monitor system that transmits data from the mill to the provincial Department of Natural Resources and Environment has also been installed.
On the collection of empty plant protection drug cans and packs and farming waste in rural areas, Ngân asked authorities concerned to increase their responsibility and public awareness of environmental protection, partly by guiding farmers on how to properly collect empty cans and build biogas pits at farms.
Regarding the settlement of bad debts at credit organisations, she said the issue would be addressed in line with the resolution, which comes into effect on August 15, 2017.
The same day, the top legislator visited and presented gifts to several policy beneficiary families in Cần Thơ. – VNS
