A series of activities have been organised across the country to mark Việt Nam’s 71st National Day on September 2.
The activities aim at encouraging the younger generation to follow the tradition of solidarity, undaunted struggle, resilient national construction and defence of the nation.
The activities are significant in educating the young generation, as they pay tribute to those who fought for the nation’s independence and territorial integrity, and in promoting the spirit of learning and working to develop Việt Nam in this new period, as the country is faced with many opportunities and challenges.
