AN GIANG — National Assembly (NA) Chairwoman Nguyễn Thị Kim Ngân has lauded the efforts of the border guard force of An Giang in managing the national border and ensuring political security as well as social order and safety in border areas over the years.
Visiting the An Giang Border Guard High Command on Saturday during her visit to the Mekong Delta province, the top legislator asked the force to continue strictly managing the border, while coordinating with relevant forces to prevent border and trans-border criminals.
As An Giang has diverse terrain, the force should work hard to prevent smuggling and illegal cross-border goods transportation, while strictly handling violations of regulations in border protection and management, she said.
She also reminded the force to promote people-to-people diplomacy in the border area, building strong solidarity, friendship and cooperation with localities and border guard force of Cambodia.
Earlier the same day, the NA leader visited a 600-hectare high-tech tra fish farm developed by Nam Việt Group in Bình Phú Commune of Châu Phú District, the first of its kind in Việt Nam.
At a working session with leaders of An Giang and Châu Phú District and Nam Việt Group, NA Chairwoman Ngân said that the farm is a good model to optimise the province’s advantages. She asked the locality to support the group, thus contributing to modernising the local agricultural sector, raising the province’s gross regional domestic product, and improving the farming practice in the locality.
She expressed her hope that Nam Việt Group will continue to expand the project while paying attention to environmental protection. She also took note of the group’s proposals on land policies for businesses for expand production scale, including raising the land ownership limit to over 30 hectares per individual.
