She made the request while concluding the question and answer session for Transport Minister Nguyen Van The on June 4 as part of the ongoing fifth session of the 14th National Assembly.

The ministry should coordinate with other ministries, agencies and localities to seek solutions in order to speed up the progress of key projects, ensuring that they are implemented economically and effectively, the chief legislator said.

Several major transport projects and those which are overdue must be completed, she said, stressing the need to clarify responsibility of organisations and organisations for sluggishness and increased capital of these projects.

NA Chairwoman Ngan urged the ministry to review the transport planning, with attention paid to the railway system, saying the ministry should promptly study feasible schemes for the North-South high-speed railway to submit to the National Assembly in 2019.

It is a must to ensure connectivity between big economic centres and at transport gateways, while investing in transport infrastructure in disadvantaged areas, she noted.

She also highlighted solutions to attract different economic sectors, including foreign investors, to transport infrastructure development, guaranteeing legitimate interests of the State, investors and residents.

Besides, measures to ensure traffic safety and order should be implemented fully and effectively, the legislator said.

She asked the Government to effectively materialise the NA Standing Committee’s Resolution No. 437 on a number of tasks and solutions to continue to complete and step up the implementation of policies and laws on investment and use of build-operate-transfer (BOT) projects.

Earlier the same day, Minister of Transport Nguyen Van The was grilled by lawmakers 4 about solutions to deal with problems related to transport projects invested under the form of build-operate-transfer.

Minister The is the first Cabinet member to reply to queries at the question and answer session of the fifth session of the 14th NA.
