HÀ NỘI — Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc attended the great national unity festival held in Điện Biên Ward of Hà Nội’s Ba Đình District on Sunday to mark the 89th founding anniversary of Việt Nam Fatherland Front (November 18).
Highlighting the significance of the event, PM Phúc said it is a chance to listen to public feedback via the political system at a grassroots level.
He expressed his wish that local authorities and people would maintain the tradition of solidarity and unity in the current regional and global context.
PM Phúc hailed Điện Biên Ward for its achievements since the launch of the campaign “All people stay united to build new-style rural and civilised areas” a year ago, as well as the city and Điện Biên Ward’s care for policy beneficiaries and poor households.
The leader also spoke highly of the city’s development progress and praised the ward’s Party Committee, People’s Council, People’s Committee and VFF chapter for launching revolutionary movements across the locality.
Party members and officials, especially those working at ward-level administrations, were urged to show good examples to win more public trust.
The PM also asked local authorities to successfully hold Party congresses at all levels next year to choose the best qualified personnel, contributing to national development.
PM Phúc, National Assembly Vice Chairman Uông Chu Lưu, leaders of ministries and agencies, and the Hà Nội People’s Committee presented gifts to disadvantaged households, the elderly, outstanding students and cultural families.
Earlier on Saturday, Chairwoman of the National Assembly Nguyễn Thị Kim Ngân joined residents in Sóc Chà B Hamlet, Thanh Sơn Commune in the Mekong Delta province of Trà Vinh’s Trà Cú District, in celebrating the great national solidarity festival.
The top legislator expressed her delight over the contributions made by Sóc Chà B Hamlet, a popular revolutionary base in the past, to the province’s socio-economic development.
She also rejoiced at the hamlet’s achievements in the past year, with 229 out of the 295 households recognised as cultural families, all students from kindergarten to secondary school levels getting education and fully vaccinated, while all locals holding insurance cards and getting access to electricity and clean water.
NA Chairwoman Ngân spoke highly of the hamlet authorities’ efforts in improving local livelihoods, and urged local officials and people to strengthen solidarity to build the Party, and complete political missions entrusted on them.
