President Truong Tan Sang met with voters in district 4, Tan Phu, Thu Duc on Aug 11th and told voters that the National Assembly and Government watched closely the situation in the East sea.


He also explained that the consistent policy of Vietnam is to settle all disputes through peaceful means on the basis of international law.


"Protecting our national sovereignty and territorial integrity over our islands is the consistent policy of the Party and Government. We're determined to protect our national independence and territorial integrity while maintaining an environment of peace in the service of our path of industrialization and modernization."


Comrade Sang said in order to carry out these important tasks, the nation must have correct policies and strong measures to protect its territorial integrity through peaceful negotiations and in line with the international laws and practices.


He also told voters that Vietnam government did not allow recruiting Chinese workers in the bauxite mine…and those workers would return home after finishing the contract of supplying equipment of the plant…

Concerning the success in the fight against corruption, embezzlement and wastage, the President revealed that all depended on the impeccable behavior of officials at all levels.


He said the government was planning to review the existing anti-corruption law to respond to new requirements.


"The Party and Government are well aware of the importance of anti-corruption activities. We have carried out the war against corruption for many years. Yet, successes have not been up to our expectation," Comrade Sang said.


Many voters attending the meeting expressed their anxiety about the effectiveness of the anti-corruption law and hoped that the newly elected National Assembly deputies would do what they had promised during their election campaigns.


Vo Thanh Thao, from ward 4 , district 4, asked the National Assembly to apply more concrete and determined measures  to protect the national sovereignty in the East sea. Other voters express their will that the Party and Government increase its supervision activities, particularly in major economic groups, and take strong actions against corruption.


Hoang Minh Ngoc, from ward 4, drew the attention of the president to the slow issuance of the guiding documents to turn the laws passed by the National Assembly into reality.


Ngoc complained about overlapping and contradictions in laws the people and law enforcement officers had to implement.
