Hai Phong (VNA)
Chairman of the National Assembly (NA) Vuong Dinh Hue had a working session
with the Standing Board of the Hai Phong Party Committee while visiting this northern
port city on February 9.
Speaking highly of local
achievements in the recent past, the top legislator noted in 2021, despite the
COVID-19 pandemic’s impacts, Hai Phong remained a bright spot with considerable
contributions to Vietnam’s attainments.
The gross regional domestic
product (GRDP) grew by some 12.38 percent - almost 5 times higher than the
national average, budget collection rose 24 percent, while the attracted foreign
direct investment surged 91.44 percent year on year to 3.13 billion USD. Besides,
the city has performed well in the COVID-19 combat and vaccination, he said.
Hue agreed with the key plans
and tasks identified to realise targets for this year, asking Hai Phong to
immediately get down to business as the Lunar New Year holiday was over.
It needs to press on with
removing obstacles facing enterprises and people, swiftly carry out
anti-pandemic tasks, drastically implement the socio-economic recovery and
development programme issued by the Government in late January, and closely
follow the NA’s Resolution No. 43/2022/QH15 on fiscal and monetary policies
supporting this programme.
Local authorities should also
make thorough preparations to ensure safety for students’ return to school, continue
working to enhance defence and security, step up the Party building and
rectification, boost the corruption crackdown, and ramp up administrative
reform to create the best possible conditions for people and enterprises,
according to the NA leader./.
