HÀ NỘI — Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc has emphasised the important role of the young people of Việt Nam to drive the country forward.
He said the nation’s youth represent the aspirations and ambitions of the entire nation, especially in national construction, development and defence.
At a dialogue with young people as part of the eighth National Congress of the Việt Nam Youth Federation (VYF) in Hà Nội on Thursday, Phúc said State agencies and ministrations at all levels have always facilitated the development of the youth.
Regarding solutions to develop a new generation of better youngsters, he said after the Youth Law was promulgated, the government has synchronously implemented documents and regulations, and instructed ministries and agencies to create optimal conditions for young people by specific directives, projects and decrees.
He asked the Hồ Chí Minh Communist Youth Union (HCYU), Central Committee and the Ministry of Home Affairs to focus on building a Vietnamese youth development strategy for the next 10 years.
Joining the dialogue, Deputy PM Vũ Đức Đam said the government will roll out solutions to enhance the responsibility of the VYF and the Vietnam Students’ Association (VSA).
Each member of the VYF and VSA must be an ambassador of patriotism, morality and lifestyle, he said, urging them to improve their physical and spiritual health at the same time.

Deputy Minister of Education and Training Nguyễn Văn Phúc; Minister of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs Đào Ngọc Dung, Minister of Home Affairs Lê Vĩnh Tân and Deputy Minister of Finance Trần Văn Hiếu also engaged in the discussions.
They touched upon issues such as political and theoretical education, job generation, policies to attract talents to State agencies, and policies to help young people access loans to develop high-tech models.
Concluding the dialogue, PM Phúc attributed the achievements in national socio-economic development over in the past to contributions of many generations, including future generations.
He pointed out challenges facing Việt Nam and Vietnamese young people in particular in the context of the fourth Industrial Revolution along with impacts of climate change.
In that context, the VYF must continue to mobilise the participation of Vietnamese young people at home and abroad in the country’s development and international integration, PM Phúc said.
The youth must have sound ideals, confidence in the country, State and national regime, as well as will and aspirations to make the country more prosperous and powerful, the leader said.
He pledged that the State and Government will co-ordinate better with the HCYU Central Committee and the VYF to create more favourable conditions for youngsters to carry forward their talent in national construction.
The PM also asked the VYF to promote patriotism and voluntary movements among youths in the next tenure. — VNS
