Party General Secretary visits Binh Dinh for Tet

BINH DINH — Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong has extended his best wishes to the authorities and people of the central province of Binh Dinh on the occasion of the upcoming Tet festival.

During his visit to the province yesterday, Trong expressed his delight at the locality's development, in particular the increasingly improved living conditions of the people and the reduction of poor households.

He praised the province for implementing social welfare policies efficiently and providing assistance to poor households, the elderly, the disabled and the victims of Agent Orange/dioxin.

On the same day, Trong visited and congratulated the authorities and people of Nhon Loc Commune, one of the four model communes of newly-styled rural areas in Binh Dinh.

Earlier on Sunday, Trong visited Quang Trung Museum, laid a wreath at the Emperor Quang Trung monument and offered incense at the Tay Son Temple, which is dedicated to the three brothers of the Tay Son family.

He also visited and presented gifts to poor households and veterans in the locality.

Deputy Prime Ministers Nguyen Xuan Phuc and Nguyen Thien Nhan also paid Tet visits yesterday to the Central Highlands province of Dak Lak and the Mekong Delta province of Ca Mau. — VNS
