President stresses youths’ role in international integration

Young people are pioneers in national construction and defence, and one of the decisive factors in Vietnam’s industrialisation, modernisation and international integration, President Tran Dai Quang said on October 13.

“The Party and State puts youths at the centre of the national human resources development strategy to ensure the country’s stability and sustainable development,” he said at a ceremony marking the 60 th anniversary of the Vietnam Youth Federation (VYF) (October 15) in Hanoi.

Mentioning youths’ contributions to national liberation, construction and defence, the President said the VYF has grown in all aspects.

He urged the federation to continue uniting young people, especially those in ethnic groups and from remote and disadvantaged areas.

The federation should also team up with the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union in educating young people about patriotism and humanitarianism, he said.

The leader said a voluntary spirit should be displayed by young people, calling on them to take a more active part in socio-economic development, social welfare, poverty reduction, national construction and defence.

At the ceremony, the VYF Central Committee honoured 80 young people who made outstanding contributions to youth movements over the years.
