Voters from Ha Noi's Ba Dinh District expressed their concerns over current issues facing the country, including education quality and low pay, in a meeting with Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong in the city yesterday, Sep 28th.
The meeting was organised before the second session of the 13th National Assembly, scheduled to open later next month.
Voter Vu Trong Hot from Truc Bach Ward suggested proper compensation policies for families affected by site clearance.
He said those affected should be duly compensated and helped to find jobs.
He also expressed his concern over wasteful land and water use.
Voter Vu Huu Dinh from Trung Truc Ward said he was happy to see the newly-elected leaders had been addressing hot issues such as price management and interest rates.
In terms of education, Truc was concerned about the paradox of school shortages and poor quality education with the high rate of good schools and excellent students.
He said calling for people to subsidise education was necessary, but detailed regulations were needed to avoid overcharging, particularly during times of high inflation.
Additionally, education reform should be done carefully to ensure comprehensive education for children, he added.
Voter Tran Xuan Thieu from Quan Thanh Ward was more concerned about slow pay increases for State employees and dwindling pension funds while the cost of consumer goods continued to rise.
He also suggested that law enforcement needed to be stepped to combat the rising crime rate.
Voter Phan Duc Thuyen from Kim Ma Ward asked the National Assembly to enhance its supervision to ensure policies and legal documents were correctly and effectively implemented.
He stressed the need to clarify who should bear the responsibility if State-owned corporations operated at a loss.
