HÀ NỘI – Ten Hanoians have been honoured for their contributions to local development over the past year at a ceremony held yesterday by the city’s Communist Youth Union.

The honourees made excellent achievements in scientific research, security, economics, art, sports and volunteering and were nominated by State agencies, districts and towns across the capital city.

They include Trần Xuân Bách, 33, Doctor of Medicine, a lecturer at Institute for Preventive medicine and public health, under the Hà Nội Medical University, Phan Đức Nhật Minh, 19, twelfth-grade student at the High School for Gifted Students, Hà Nội University of Science, Nguyễn Văn Thiết, 22, a student at Hà Nội Vocational College of High Technology, Phan Văn Học, 33, general director of Sohaco Trading and Pharmaceutical group joint stock company.

Others include Tạ Đình Huy, 34, from Chương Mỹ district’s Thượng Vực, Nguyễn Nhật Quang, 35, deputy head of the drug  investigation team of the Hà Nội Police, Vũ Thanh An, 25, a fencer at the Hà Nội Sports and Physically Training Centre, Trần Lê Quang Tiến, 15, a student of the Việt Nam National Academy of Music 15, Hoàn Đình Quang, 23, a student from Hà Nội Foreign Trade University and Đỗ Thúy Hà, 36, head of Đống Đa district’s Blind Association.

Speaking at the ceremony, Bách said he hoped to work with other youth members as well as doctors sector to study and to improve his caring skills as well as develop community health care projects.

Bách was once an assistant professor at the US’s Johns Hopkins University. His research focuses on applying decision analytic modeling to inform the development and evaluation of health technologies and policies. He won the Hopkins Center for AIDS research’s International research award and the Đặng Văn Ngữ Memorial Award.

He is the youngest associate professor in Vietnam and has been published in reputable international journals including the Lancet, Bulletin of the World Health Organisation, AIDs and Behaviours and Drug and Alcohol Dependence.

Having studied at university for a short period of time, Nguyễn Văn Thiết has decided to change course.

“Recognising that studying at university is not the only way to success, I chose vocational training hoping that I can learn and work at the same time," he said.

He won a gold medal in the industrial automation category at the ASEAN Skills Competition 2016 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

“I’ll try to apply my knowledge of automation to improve productivity and reduce working hours,” he said at the ceremony.

Trần Lê Quang Tiến, the youngest of the awardees, was the first winner of an international violin competition in Kazakhstan in 2016. He also won first prize at the Mozart Violin Competition in Thailand two years ago.

Since its debut eight years ago, the programme has honoured 70 exemplary residents. — VNS
