On the same day, the Politburo member had a working session with the Phu Tho provincial Party Committee on mass mobilisation work, in which she stressed that the essential issues related to people's lives that have been paid attention to and solved in a timely manner are an important factor to create consensus and strengthen the people's trust in the local authorities.

She asked Phu Tho to continue to effectively implement the work of grasping people’s opinions through mass mobilisation work, through the evaluation reports of committees, authorities and state agencies, and through the mass media. Furthermore, the province should continue to improve the quality and efficiency of its mass mobilisation work and effectively implement the work on setting exemplary models by the local officials and Party members.
