HÀ NỘI — Youth union organisations should focus on building a generation of young people with sufficient capabilities, qualifications, skills and spirit to meet the requirements of nation building and defence amid international integration, Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc has said.
Speaking at a working session with the Hồ Chí Minh Communist Youth Union Central Committee in Hà Nội yesterday to mark Youth Month 2019, Phúc urged the organisations to attract more youngsters to revolutionary movements, especially in disadvantaged areas.
He called on young people to continue volunteering in the implementation of the country’s common tasks involving labour issues, economic development, cultural preservation, political stability and defence-security.
The PM also suggested the organisations encourage passion for science and technology among young people by creating more favourable conditions for them to access learning opportunities and develop their skills.
The Government leader directed local authorities to pay special attention to job creation and career guidance as well as culture, art, sports and entertainment activities for youngsters. He agreed with the committee’s proposal of building a start-up centre for youths via social investment.
At the working session, the First Secretary of the Hồ Chí Minh Communist Youth Union Central Committee Lê Quốc Phong reported the co-ordination with ministries and agencies to implement the Prime Minister’s conclusions at the 2018 working session, including a project on strengthening the ideal education of revolution, morality, lifestyle for youths, adolescents and children in 2015-20.
He also reported the improvement of the quality and efficiency of cultural institutions for children. The report also mentioned progress on the construction of swimming pools to prevent drowning for children launched by the Youth Union. — VNS
