HA NOI (VNS) — Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has urged the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union (HCMCYU) Central Committee to help young people thrive by taking on jobs with responsibilities.

The Prime Minister made his comments during a Saturday meeting with the committee to mark the union's 83rd anniversary of its founding, which falls on March 26.

Also, Dung praised the outstanding performance of a group of young people honoured at the event, expressing his hope that they will exert even greater efforts and become good role models for their peers.

He also highly praised the cooperation between the government and the committee which, he said, had significantly contributed to the country's development.

The PM expressed his hope that the government and the union will continue their collaboration, both in youth education, as well as in ensuring the legitimate rights of the nation's youths, especially in study and research.

Union members were also asked to improve co-ordination with each other in inspection work, social criticism, job generation and the issuance of policies towards young people.

At the meeting, Nguyen Dac Vinh, First Secretary of the HCMCYU Central Committee, said the committee had been assigned many socio-economic development tasks, helping young people play a role in the country's industrialisation and modernisation.

Over the past years, the government and the HCMCYU have worked together to make authorities and youth unions at all levels well aware of their responsibilities in ensuring the role young people play in development and national defence, he added. — VNS
