HÀ NỘI — Securing the unity of the Vietnamese people and promoting Vietnamese cultural and human values are extremely important tasks that require the determination and efforts of the whole country, especially in the current international and domestic context, Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc has said.
The Government leader made the comment as he addressed the opening ceremony of the National Great Unity Festival 2019 week at the Việt Nam National Village for Ethnic Culture and Tourism in Hà Nội’s Ba Vì District yesterday.
Speaking at the ceremony, the PM said unity has always been a valuable tradition, a source of strength, an important motivation and a decisive factor for all victories in the cause of national construction and defence of Vietnamese people.
Reviewing the country's recent socio-economic achievements, the Prime Minister stated there were important and positive contributions of the Việt Nam Fatherland Front (VFF) and its member organisations to the nation's unity.
“We need to continue to promote the great unity, constantly evoke aspiration, will and national pride among the people, exploit all potentials and strengths of the people for rapid and sustainable economic development, bringing our country firmly on the path that the Party and President Hồ Chí Minh have chosen," the PM said.
He urged the VFF to continue raising the banner of national unity, so all 54 ethnic groups, regardless of their location, are developed equally, with the motto “No one is left behind.”
The National Great Unity Festival week has been held annually for the past eight years to honour the great spirit of national unity, realise the Party and State's guidelines and policies in consolidating and strengthening the nation's strength of unity and preserve and promote the good traditional cultural values of the community of 54 ethnic groups in Việt Nam. — VNS
