HA NOI (VNS)— Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung yesterday urged the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union to continue developing the talent of its members so that they can make significant contributions to the country's growth.
The PM met with the union's central committee on the occasion of the 82nd anniversary of its establishment.
He expressed his hope that the organisation would continue to educate and inspire the country's youth.
He suggested that if young people could clearly define their responsibilities to themselves, their families and their country, they would be more likely to contribute to Viet Nam's socio-economic development.
Dung also asked the union to enhance a sense of solidarity among the next generation.
He acknowledged that it is necessary to involve the youth in more meaningful and useful activities in order to keep them engaged and aware of their important role to the national construction and defence.
The Government is currently considering a plan to establish a fund assisting young people in rural areas to set up and run their own business.
The first secretariat of the union, Nguyen Dac Vinh, told the Prime Minister that the union would focus on educating youth about morality and lifestyle, as well as canvassing for their opinions on amendments set to be made to the 1992 Constitution this year.
The union would keep assisting its members with their studies and business initiatives, he said.
On the same day, Dung held a meeting with 10 young people commended for their outstanding work and study this year in the fields of culture, sport, education, public security and business.
He told the group that he hoped they would continue to take advantage of their abilities and contribute to the development of Viet Nam. — VNS
