The local voters expressed their confidence in the instruction and management of the Party, the National Assembly and the Government, which have helped boost socio-economic recovery and development, and fight corruption and other negative phenomena.

They raised concerns over personnel issues and the shortage of drugs and medical equipment.

The voters suggested launching more social housing projects for low-income earners, building more expressways, promoting wind power and seeking solutions to climate change in Mekong Delta and Can Tho in particular.
