PHU THO (VNS) — Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong toured the northern midland province of Phu Tho on Saturday to assess its socio-economic development and new rural area building programmes.

The Party leader visited residents of Vo Mieu Commune in Thanh Son District where he said that the Party and State were focused on ensuring social welfare and equality, as well as the implementing poverty reduction policies.

Vo Mieu Commune is home to many ethnic minority groups, and nearly all of them have access to power and healthcare services, while 85 per cent enjoy clean water supplies.

So far, the commune has fulfilled seven out of the 19 criteria specified by the Government to build a new-style rural area.

Noting that the locality had faced many difficulties with a high ratio of poor households, the Party leader urged local authorities and residents to promote the area's potential and strength in land and labour resources.

He said the locality should increase the application of advanced technology in production, while developing a large-scale model involving the processing and export industries.

General Secretary Trong hailed the efforts made by the commune to study and follow the moral example of President Ho Chi Minh, and the resolution on Party building.

He underlined that the locality should focus on strengthening solidarity within the community and developing human resources.

On the occasion of the Hung Kings Temple Festival and the commemoration of Lac Long Quan (who is believed to be the father of the nation), the Party leader offered incense and paid a floral tribute to the Hung Kings at the Hung Temple in Hy Cuong Commune.

He also gave thanks to Lac Long Quan at his temple and prayed for prosperity and peace for the nation. — VNS
