HA NOI — President Truong Tan Sang yesterday visited historical Kim Binh Commune, chosen to pilot the new national rural programme, in the northern mountain province of Tuyen Quang's Chiem Hoa District.
Sang paid homage to war martyrs at the Kim Binh Historical Monument where late President Ho Chi Minh and other State and Party leaders used to work during the second national Party Congress in February 1951.
The congress issued the decision to rename the Labour Party of Viet Nam from the Indochinese Communist Party.
Sang visited the location to mark the 61st anniversary of the congress, also as a way to look back on services rendered by his predecessors.
He also worked with communal authorities and residents on their socio-economic development and outcomes related to the implementation of the new rural area programme.
The leader commented that despite unfavourable natural conditions, the commune had focused on high-yield mainstay plants.
He noted the locality's remarkable achievements in giving the area a new face via the construction of schools, from primary to higher levels, connecting all households to power network and building car-accessible roads.
Sang urged the commune to take more heeds on sustainable growth, commodity production and privileges for those having contributed to the resistance. — VNS
