Deputies focus on issues of major public concern

QĐND – Thursday, June 10, 2010, 21:1 (GMT+7)

National Assembly (NA) deputies have raised concerns over the Ministry of Finance’s role and responsibility over price controls, capital mobilisation and use for key national projects as well as building trademarks of agricultural products.

During the four-day question time, beginning from June 10, deputies will question four ministers, namely the Minister of Finance, the Minister of Transport, the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development and the Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism. Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Sinh Hung will also take part.

NA Deputy Nguyen Huu Nhi from Nghe An said he was concerned over the high salaries of some leaders from State groups and corporations are paid. He said, “I want the Minister of Finance to clarify the regulations on the salaries of senior managers in State groups and corporations while farmers and other workers’ lives still face a lot of difficulties.”

In terms of agriculture and rural development, it is essential to consider the State’s management over the quality of plant varieties, fertilisers, pesticides and the application of advanced technologies in agricultural production, said Mr Nhi.

The Minister of Finance will respond to questions about measures to control inflation and market prices especially when there are increases in the prices of electricity, water, petro and other essential goods, greatly affecting low-income earners and poor farmers.

In the recent past, the collapse of the spans of Can Tho and Thanh Tri bridges made the media headline. The Minister of Transport will have to answer questions about the State’s responsibility for ensuring the quality of capital investment construction and transport projects as well as resolving traffic congestion and reducing traffic accidents.

NA deputy Danh Ut from Kien Giang province said that he was interested in the Ministry of Finance’s role in controlling the prices of petrol, fertiliser, steel and sugarcane.

The Ministry of Finance recently examined 17 businesses, of which 11 had not registered for price controls in a bid to drive up prices up which caused big losses to many farmers.

The Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development will then answer NA deputies’ queries about why creating trademarks for agro-fishery products is so slow.

NA deputy Nguyen Thuc Khang from Ba Ria-Vung Tau province underlined the need to discuss the capital sources for key national projects. Such issues should be carefully considered by the NA before approving key national projects, stressed Mr Khang.
