The newly elected senior official emphasised that NA deputies and delegates at the People's Councils should try their best to fulfil their assigned duties, while always be absolutely loyal to the Fatherland, serving the people, putting national interests first, meeting the trust of the Party and State and continuing to be close to the people and voters.

He proposed that the Hanoi, Ba Dinh District and Dien Bien Ward’s authorities continue to promote democracy at the grassroots level, ensure the people's right to mastery and promote reform and innovation to improve the material and spiritual life of the people.
