A conference on the role of Municipal and Provincial People’s Councils in promoting inter-regional links in the Mekong River Delta opened in Ben Tre province on November 5.
Participants discussed policies and mechanisms to exploit and promote the potential of the Mekong Delta region.
In her address, National Assembly (NA) Vice Chairwoman Tong Thi Phong urged Municipal and Provincial People’s Councils, who serve as a bridge between the Party, State and the people, to further contribute to promoting links between localities in the region.
“People’s Councils need to increase coordination between localities in the region and review their socio-economic situation.
The issuance of a Resolution on People’s Council needs to take into account the relevance of local and regional socio-economic development plans," she said.
