HA NOI (VNS) — Officials from Ha Noi, HCM City and the Central Highlands extended their Christmas greetings to parishioners yesterday.

Secretary of the Ha Noi Municipal Party Committee Pham Quang Nghi, Vice Permanent Secretary of the HCM City Party Committee Vo Van Thuong and Vice Chairman of the Central Highlands Committee Tran Viet Hung headed the delegations.

The officials thanked the Catholic and Protestant dignitaries and followers for contributing to their localities' socio-economic progress.

The Vietnamese Party and State always created favourable conditions for religious organisations to practise and hoped they would work closely with local authorities to take better care of parishioners, Hung said.

Catholicism and Protestantism are the two major branches of Christianity in Viet Nam, with nearly 7 million and over 1 million followers respectively. — VNS
