PM urges Vinh Bao to soon become new-style rural district
Vinh Bao should boost high-tech agriculture, encourage businesses to operate in rural areas and pay heed to environmental protection, the PM told locals yesterday ahead of the second sitting of the 14th National Assembly, set to open on October 20.
He asked the district’s all-level Party Committees and authorities to promote locals’ role in socio-economic development and prioritize education and labor reform.
The leader stressed that agricultural and health insurance is of concern to the National Assembly and Government.
The Government had also given the green light to upgrades for major transport infrastructure facilities to spur socio-economic development in Vinh Bao and Hai Phong, he said.
Mentioning food safety, the PM underscored the need to clarify responsibilities, noting that the issue would be under the legislature’s supreme supervision.
In 2016, Hai Phong recorded achievements across various fields, he said, praising the city as one of the fastest growing localities, especially in foreign investment attraction.
Hai Phong was the country’s third largest economic centre and a driving force for the north’s economy, the PM said.
Briefing residents on the country’s development, PM Phuc emphasised that the Government had set forth policies to deal with issues of public concern and build a sustainable economy.
The Government had not traded the environment for economic development, turned tourism into an economic spearhead, protected the rights and interests of people and businesses, and removed barriers hindering production and business, he said.

They showed their support for efforts to build an upright and active Government that work for businesses and people.
