NDO/VNA - National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan had a meeting with voters in Phong Dien town, in the Mekong city of Can Tho, to brief them on the outcomes of the NA’s fourth session.

The Phong Dien voters spoke highly of the outcomes of the session, saying that the NA deputies effectively performed their roles and the PM and ministers frankly clarified the issues raised by the deputies.

They raised their opinions on various issues, including education, anti-corruption, BOT (build-operate-transfer) toll fee collection, health insurance, markets for agricultural products, and credit support for high technology application.

Answering the voters’ questions on transport-related BOT projects, the senior legislator acknowledged some problems in the location of toll stations, toll fee levels and the duration of toll fee collections. She cited the postponement of the operation of Cai Lay BOT toll station as a lesson in the work.

She clarified that the NA Standing Committee issued a resolution on several tasks and solutions to continue completing and accelerating the implementation of a number of legal policies in investment and exploitation of some transport works in BOT form. In the future, the NA will continue to supervise the work.

On anti-corruption issues, the NA Chairwoman said that the NA is considering the adoption of the revised Anti-Corruption Law. She stressed that the Party and State’s policy focuses on corruption prevention and applying strict punishments on violators.

Responding to voter Trang Huu Thu’s concern with regards to the impacts of the addition environmental fee to petrol prices on production, Ngan said that a suitable roadmap will be designed to minimise the impacts on the lives and production of the people.

Meanwhile, replying to voter Nguyen Kim Chi’s request on solutions to problems in health care services for health insurance card holders, such as overload situation and the limited number of paid medicine, Ngan said that the NA will consider measures to deal with the matters during discussion of the outcomes of the Law on Health Insurance.

She also stressed the important role of the people in monitoring the implementation of policies and laws related to health insurance.
