HCM CITY — President Trần Đại Quang reported on the outcomes of the third session of the 14th National Assembly and highlighted issues of concern during a meeting with constituents in districts 1, 3 and 4 in HCM City yesterday.
He stated that the Party and State are committed to building a transparent and strong apparatus as well as fighting corruption and wastefulness, citing the Central Steering Committee for Corruption Prevention and Control’s regular meetings and the dispatch of inspection teams to localities.
The President underscored the role of leaders in Party committees and agencies in the effort and the need to increase precautionary measures, partly by strengthening inspection and supervision.
On the subject of 12 loss-making projects announced by the Ministry of Industry and Trade, Quang reiterated the stance on thoroughly dealing with them and respecting the principle of self-responsibility in businesses. He added that the State will not provide additional capital for these projects.
He said that in addition to these projects, the Government would continue inspecting others to uncover and tackle any that are ineffective or incurring big losses.
Constituent Đặng Thanh Bình from District 1 and Nguyễn Thị Mỹ Hạnh from District 4 urged the suspension of sand exports because prices are lower than those at home, and expressed concern over the illegal exploitation of natural resources.
The State leader was in agreement and said the Government had asked for the suspension of all sand exports and mining contracts in order to thoroughly check illegal projects.
He reaffirmed the Party and State policy of effective exploitation of natural resources in tandem with environmental protection.
The President also answered constituents’ queries about the child protection law, sidewalk management, pedestrian streets, traffic safety, medicine prices control, and the import of old machinery. — VNS
