The Presidium of the VFF Central Committee put forth six proposals, including handling the vaccine strategy; increasing investment in the grassroots healthcare system and preventive medicine; thoroughly dealing with social security issues, labour, employment, social psychology, bringing up and education of orphans, and support for vulnerable groups; and listing medical equipment and biologicals for testing among the commodities subject to the State's management of prices.

Voters and people supported the policy of delaying wage increases amid major impacts of the pandemic but called on the Party and State to raise pensions for those who retired before 1995.

They held that the Party and State should consider policies for assisting and encouraging frontline forces in the pandemic combat, according to Chien./.
