HÀ NỘI — A total of 85 outstanding young people from throughout the country will receive the Lương Định Của Award at a special ceremony in Hà Nội on November 26.
The Lương Định Của Award is an annual award sponsored by the HCM Central Youth Union and given to young people with outstanding achievements in manufacturing, trade, applying modern science technologies, protecting the environment and setting up new rural lifestyles.
Nguyễn Phi Long, Secretary of the HCM Central Youth Union, said that the award aimed at encouraging rural young people to contribute to developing the country’s socio-economic, agriculture and new rural lifestyles.
This is the eleventh year the awards ceremony will be held.
The 85 young people receiving the award this year are between 18 and 35 years old. Thirteen of them are members of ethnic minorities, including Bana, Dao, H’mông, Mường, Sán Chỉ, Tày and Thái.
Work done by the young people in trading and manufacturing brings in from VNĐ100,000 million (US$4,400) to more than VNĐ1 billion ($44,400) per year. They have created permanent work for nearly 500 workers and seasonal work for thousands of workers in their communities.
During the award ceremony, each of the young people will receive a certificate of merit, a cup, and VNĐ2 million (about $90). They will also receive technical and financial help to further develop their manufacturing businesses, with help from the Việt Nam National Oil and Gas Group, and Agribank. — VNS
