President assesses development progress in Xaysettha district

President Bounnhang Vorachit has instructed authorities in Vientiane's Xaysettha district to contribute more to national defence and public security, and comply more closely with the criteria for creating crime-free and hygienic villages.

Mr Bounnhang gave the recommendations when visiting local authorities on Friday, accompanied by Vientiane Mayor Dr Sinlavong Khoutphaythoun.

President Bounnhang said undesirable conduct had yet to be curtailed to meet targets, especially problems concerning drugs, illegal workers, and road accidents.

More than 360 court cases were processed in Xaysettha district last year, and there were 172 road accident victims over the past nine months. Mr Bounnhang urged the authorities to pay more attention to ensuring villages were crime-free and hygienic and to check that they maintained the criteria required to be officially declared as such.

The President also said the district should continue to improve its political system as well as strengthen capacity building at the district and village levels so that it developed as a comprehensively strengthened unit, and that villages became development units.

Xaysettha district is home to That Luang, the nation's revered iconic symbol, and is where important industrial and commercial zones are located.

With regard to economic development, Mr Bounnhang called on district authorities to encourage more people to engage in commercial production in the agriculture and handicraft sectors, while also identifying markets and appropriate outlets for the distribution of better quality, cleaner and safer products that would attract domestic and foreign customers, especially foreign tourists visiting Laos and Xaysettha district. Xaysettha was representative of the nation's economy and culture, he added.

Mr Bounnhang praised the achievements made by the district and its residents in the past.

He urged the authorities to create more opportunities for people to implement the Party's directives, government policy, and development plans and projects.

He encouraged the authorities to enhance their leadership in guiding a patriotic spirit of development, and realise plans to turn Vientiane into a clean, green, well-lit, safe, beautiful and charming city.

On the same day President Bounnhang and his colleagues visited a handicraft shop in the district's Phonkheng village.
