According to Chairwoman of the Municipal People’s Council Nguyen Thi Bich Ngoc, the question-and-answer session will last one day, focusing on two issues as followings.
For question-and-answer via documents, the People’s Council requests People’s Committee to report implementation of requests at the supervision session in 2016, as well as requests at the session of the Standing Commission of People’s Council after the People’s Council fourth session. According to assessment of the Standing Commission of People’s Council, this is the opportunity for People’s Committees at all levels to review all of their tasks, and give proposals to amend, supplement resolution in accordance with actual conditions for better performance. Nguyen Thi Bich Ngoc emphasized that supervision work made slow progress. There were 146 requests at the session; so far, only 59.5% of them were settled. 462 other requests were given after citizen reception; 35.2% of them are settled, 37% are in progress, and the rest remains unsolved.
For direct question and answer at the venue, the People’s Council focuses on two affairs:
- Urban management: land management, construction order, and elimination of ultra-thin and distorted houses; urban order, waste collection and treatment; fire fighting and prevention, and advertisement management. According to Nguyen Thi Bich Ngoc, the city saw development in handling requests; however, 45.8% of the requests are in implementation process and show no progress so far. 118 out of 236 requests are on urban management; that means urban management remains the burning issue in Ha Noi. Therefore, uban management affairs will be discussed at the question-and-answer session.
- Economy: the question-and-answer session will focus on implementation of the policy on agriculture development and market management. 60% of voters live on and deal with agriculture production; therefore, they pay special attention to agriculture development policy. Over the past time, the city saw progression in agriculture development; however, there was slow progress in report and amendment, along with problems in market management and food safety.
This is the first time when the Municipal People’s Council supervises all activities of the Municipal People’s Committee, Nguyen Thi Bich Ngoc emphasized. Chairman and Vice Chairmen of the Municipal People’s Committee, Directors of city’s departments, leaders of districts and towns will take part in the session and answer the questions.
