HCM CITY — The Nguyễn Văn Trỗi Prize was awarded to 35 young workers for their outstanding contributions to HCM City’s socio-economic development at a function on Sunday.
They were chosen from out of 69 outstanding workers who applied modern technologies to improve production and, thus, boost socio-economic development.
One of them was Nguyễn Hùng Linh of the Phú Nhuận Jewelry Joint Stock Company who adopted a robotic ultrasound system to improve labour productivity and quality.
Replacing the manual ultrasonic process being used earlier helped his company save more than VNĐ120 million (US$5,287) a year.
Nguyễn Thị Hương Lan of Vinamilk helped the company save hundreds of millions of đồng through her suggestion to set up a communication channel between various departments involved in the production process.
Speaking at the award ceremony, Phạm Hồng Sơn, secretary of the city committee of the Hồ Chí Minh Communist Youth Union, said since the prize was instituted 10 years ago 259 young workers have won it.
“They continued to accomplish more in their work and some won national labour awards.”
Nguyễn Thị Thu Hà, deputy secretary of the city Party Committee, congratulated the young workers and hoped they would further develop their skills and set examples for everyone like national hero Nguyễn Văn Trỗi did.
