HA NOI — President Truong Tan Sang has asked the military trade union to highlight more exemplary cases of its members who had gained achievements in business activities as a way to realise the Party and the State's target of "wealthy people, strong country".
Speaking at a meeting with 100 exemplary delegates from the military trade union in Ha Noi yesterday, Sang praised the union's initiative to launch the campaign and saw it as a solution to help enhance the living standards of all military staff in the context of the country's economic hardships.
He also asked the delegates to continue their co-operation with local authorities and people to create more support channels for their businesses.
The delegates reported to the President about their business experiences, especially in remote and mountainous areas. They also asked for information channels about the Party and the State's support policies to enhance production capacity.
The 63-year-old military trade union, which is a part of the Viet Nam General Confederation of Labour, has 17,000 members in more than 900 grassroots units. About 25 per cent of members operate in husbandry, 37 per cent in agriculture, and 26 per cent in services. — VNS
