During the ceremony, authorized by Chairman of the GCRA, Director Thiều Thị Hương presented the registration certificate for religious operation to the LDS Church. She also took the chance to convey the GCRA Chairman’s congratulations to all members of the LDS Church.

Speaking at the event, Head Hoàng Văn Tùng took the chance to thank State authorities and the GCRA especially, for creating favorable conditions for the LDS Church over the past years. He also affirmed that the LDS Church’s coordination committee would continue guiding the Church’s members to abide State laws and fulfill civil obligations.
