HA NOI (VNS)— President Truong Tan Sang yesterday called on various intellectuals prior to the coming Tet holidays, where he praised their contributions to the country's art and science.

The President met with revolutionary senior writer Hoc Phi, People's Artist Bui Dinh Hac, and Professor Dang Huy Huynh, chairman of the Viet Nam Zoological Society.

He noted that works, such as Hoc Phi's Dam Van Nun (Ni Co Dam Van), the film "On the way to mother's village" (Duong ve que me) by Bui Dinh Hac or research on Viet Nam's biological diversity undertaken by Dang Huy Huynh, still hold their true value, in spite of the passing of time, and are a motivating force for future generations.

Sang also said he wished all individuals working in the art and science sectors to contribute even more to the country's development. He then reaffirmed the State's policy in assisting artists and scientists as they seek to remain creative and as they develop their works of art and research. — VNS
