Speaking at the NA
Standing Committee’s fourth session, President of the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF)

The Presidium of the VFF
Central Committee put forth six proposals, including handling the vaccine
strategy; increasing investment in the grassroots healthcare system and
preventive medicine; thoroughly dealing with social security issues, labour,
employment, social psychology, bringing up and education of orphans, and
support for vulnerable groups; and listing medical equipment and biologicals for
testing among the commodities subject to the State's management of prices.
Voters and people
supported the policy of delaying wage increases amid major impacts of the
pandemic but called on the Party and State to raise pensions for those who
retired before 1995.
They held that the Party
and State should consider policies for assisting and encouraging frontline
forces in the pandemic combat, according to Chien./.
