HÀ NỘI — Twenty youths who follow late President Hồ Chí Minh’s teachings were honoured at a ceremony in Hà Nội yesterday.
They were among delegates to the fourth national congress for youths excelling in following President Hồ Chí Minh’s teachings between 2014 and 2016. Their achievements in studying, working and self-improvement have positively influenced society.
Addressing the ceremony, Party General Secretary Nguyễn Phú Trọng described the 445 delegates to the congress as “precious seeds” that represent over 25 million members of the Hồ Chí Minh Communist Youth Union nationwide.
He said that the Party, State and people put their trust in the youth union and the youth of Việt Nam, expecting that the union will train young generations into pioneers of national development and defence.
The fourth national congress, held on August 28-29, honours young role models while devising measures to realise the Politburo’s Directive No. 05 on enhancing the studying and following of President Hồ Chí Minh’s teachings.
Delegates include scientists, artists, entrepreneurs, farmers, workers, soldiers, students and public servants. They come from different ethnic groups and religions, as well as from overseas.
The congress featured forums on the youth’s role in integration, voluntary activities, self-improvement, start-up and creativity.--VNS
