HCM CITY (VNS) — President Truong Tan Sang on February 1 paid a Tet visit and extended New Year wishes to families of wounded revolutionary soldiers and outstanding farmers and businesses in Cu Chi district, Ho Chi Minh City.

While meeting with social welfare beneficiaries, the President praised efforts made by wounded soldiers and their families in bettering themselves to overcome difficulties in their life.

He also spoke highly of endeavours made by local farmers and enterprises to undertake market research, renovation and expansion to promote their production and business, saying that this would spur socio-economic development and new rural building in the locality.

On the occasion, President Sang also visited Thai My and Tan Thong Hoi communes, which are role-model localities for building new-style rural areas in the city.

He commended the endeavour of the two localities' party committees and authorities in effectively implementing the state's guidelines to further boost the movement, adding that he hopes the localities will optimise their ability so as to reach all 19 criteria of the rural building programme.

The President also urged Cu Chi district's authority to ensure security and order and hold fast the strength and transparence of the local Party Committee, in order to bring better living conditions to local people. — VNS
