NDO - On August 24, Politburo member and Deputy Prime Minister Truong Hoa Binh held a working session with leaders of the northern province of Quang Ninh to review the province’s socio-economic and defence and security situations; prevention and control of smuggling, trade fraud and counterfeit goods; and settlement of complaints and denunciations of citizens.

According to a report of the Quang Ninh Provincial People’s Committee, in the first seven months of this year, the province saw an economic growth rate of more than 12% and its budget collection reached over VND 27 trillion, up 13% year-on-year.

In the same review period, the province welcomed around 9.6 million visitors, an increase of 14% against the same period last year, and rate of poor households dropped to 1.05%.

The province has seen positive achievements in maintaining defence, security and social order, ensuring traffic safety; preventing and controlling smuggling, trade fraud and counterfeit goods; and handling complaints and denunciations, particularly those concerning the complicated and prolonged cases involving many people.

He called for further development of the province’s sea-based economy and the tourism sector as well as for greater efforts from the provincial authorities in removing difficulties for small and medium-sized enterprises.

He also asked the local authorities to work closely with central agencies in handling prolonged and complicated complaints and denunciations, and to foster the combat of smuggling, trade fraud and illegal transport of goods in border areas.

Earlier the same day, Deputy Truong Hoa Binh inspected the control over smuggling, counterfeit goods and trade fraud in Mong Cai City, and saluted officers and soldiers stationing at Mong Cai International Border Gate. He also visited Bac Luan II Bridge and Van Don International Airport.
