NDO/VNA - National Assembly (NA) Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan resolved a number of concerns raised by voters from the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho during their meetings from May 4-7.

Constituents from Ninh Kieu, Cai Rang and Phong Dien districts as well as those from Can Tho University expressed their confidence in the candidates running for the 14th legislature.

They expressed hope that the future deputies will pay due attention to improving the legal system and bringing Vietnamese law into force in a stable, strict and long-term manner.

The voters proposed the State devise policies to draw more foreign investment into the city’s key socio-economic projects such as Cai Cu Port and Hau River Southern Highway.

They also suggested measures to seek markets for farm produce, deal with counterfeit and low-quality products, increase food hygiene and safety, and cope with climate change, drought and saltwater intrusion in the Mekong Delta, and address environmental pollution at industrial parks and residential areas.

It is equally important to develop science-technology, improve education and vocational training, and take good care of impoverished households and social welfare families.

The NA Chairwoman took note of the proposals and said she will work with the NA Standing Committee to improve the legal system and ensure the parliament is closer to the people and more transparent.

She confirmed that she will work with local authorities to develop Can Tho into a socio-economic, science and education hub of the Mekong Delta.
