Meetings were held on April 28 to collect opinions of local voters in Districts 4, 6, Tan Binh, Tan Phu. Mr. Nguyen Minh Triet and Ms. Pham Phuong Thao, members of the National Assembly, attended the meetings.
Voters expressed their various concerns about the city’s outdated water system and roads, the long-lasting inflation, social evils, corruption and other negative phenomena as well as suitable policies to attract talented and qualified laborers.
Mr. Nguyen Minh Triet, Member of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Vietnamese Communist Party (CPV) and secretary of the CPV Ho Chi Minh City Committee stressed that the State and the Party always consider fighting against anti-corruption and other negative phenomena as the most important task.
Also, he reaffirmed the State and Party’s strong determination to punish acts of corruption. One of the major reasons for the spread of corruption is the shortcomings in administrative management, said Mr. Triet.
In the city’s urban management, he instructed the relevant authorities at various levels to speed up the necessary renovations, aiming at stabilizing the people’s lives.
On the same day, Ho Chi Minh City People’s Council Chairwoman Pham Phuong Thao, also Deputy Secretary of the Ho Chi Minh City Party Committee, joined a meeting with voters in District 6.
