THAI NGUYEN (VNS) — Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong yesterday joined residents of Thanh Xuyen 4 Hamlet in this northern province's Pho Yen District to celebrate the annual National Great Solidarity Festival.
Speaking to residents, the Party leader said the festival, which aimed to mark the founding anniversary of the Viet Nam Fatherland Front (VFF) on November 18, was an opportunity for people throughout the country to review all campaigns and activities that the VFF launched, as well as honour organisations, families and individuals who were exemplary in movements of patriotic emulation and great solidarity.
Trong stressed the importance of solidarity among the Vietnamese people during the country's revolution for national independence and freedom and during its process of national development.
"The VFF's Eighth National Congress (last September) came up with new lines in which the role of the people is very important," he said.

"Accordingly, the role of people will be further promoted to enable them to join in discussions and feel free in speaking out, doing, checking and supervising," he added.
He urged Pho Yen District residents to continue promoting long-lasting traditions and experiences to achieve all set targets for building a beautiful, prosperous and civilised homeland.
The Party leader joined VFF Chairman Nguyen Thien Nhan in visiting people in the hamlet and meeting with exemplary families of the movement, including families of veterans and war invalids. "All people unite to build a cultural life in residential areas," Trong said.
Earlier yesterday, Trong met with authorities of Pho Yen District and Thai Nguyen Province and urged them to strengthen their management of industrial zones, residential areas and vocational training for sustainable development.
Trong expressed delight over achievements of the local party organisation, government and people, including a 20 per cent annual growth rate, VND55 million (US$2,600) per capita income, a poor household rate of merely seven per cent and robust Party building work. He also called for better preparations for Party congresses at all levels.
On the same morning, Trong visited Samsung Vietnam Electronics in Yen Binh industrial zone.
Talking to the company's staff, the Party leader noted that besides developing production and business, the company continued to take care of its workers and ensure humane working and living conditions for them. — VNS
