At the meeting in Long Xuyên City, part of his working tour of the Mekong Delta, the State leader said An Giang boasts considerable potential and conditions for strong development.

He expressed his hope that the province will continue tapping into its natural and human advantages more strongly and effectively to contribute to the development of the Mekong Delta and the country at large.

President Lâm also requested all-level Party committees and administrations of An Giang to enhance the Party building and rectification, bring into play the strength of the great national solidarity, boost consensus among and determination of the public and the administration, guarantee the respect for law, and properly exercise democracy at the grassroots level.

They need to work harder to ensure social security and increase per capita income to unceasingly improve the material and spiritual lives of locals, especially those in remote, border, and ethnic minority areas, he added.

The President said that he believes with their development aspiration and resolve, the Party organisation, administration, and people of An Giang will achieve and surpass the targets set by the provincial Party Congress to join nationwide efforts in successfully implementing the resolution of the 13th National Party Congress.
