NDO/VNA – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc on March 19 held a meeting with 10 winners and 10 young prospects of the Vietnam Outstanding Youth Faces Award 2016, during which he lauded their talent, creativity as well as desire for making contributions to the country and society.
While highly evaluating the youngsters’ products, ideas and startups, the PM held that these are useful to the society and country with practical and applicable values and that entering a university is not the only way to success, while disability cannot prevent a person from obtaining outstanding achievements in all fields.
PM Phuc affirmed that the Party, State and Government will make every effort and create all optimal conditions for young people to promote their creativity and contribute more to the cause of national construction and defence.
The PM urged the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union Central Committee and the Fund for Vietnamese Young Talents to continue proposing specific measures to honour and support young talents.
The Government leader also requested ministries, agencies and localities, especially the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union, to pay more attention to young talents and help them further develop careers and make greater contributions to the country.
First Secretary of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union Central Committee Le Quoc Phong said that since the award was launched 21 years ago, 220 young talents have been honoured in various categories, including study, scientific research, creativity, business and management, security and order, defence, culture and art, sports and social activities.
At the meeting, the young talents also gave some proposals, including integrating startup instructions in schools, more support from the Government for youngsters’ research activities. They also asked for assistance in pursuing further education and training abroad.
An award ceremony is scheduled to take place on March 19 evening. The awardees will also join various activities, including a tour to Hung Kings’ Temple in Phu Tho province and Tay Thien district in Vinh Phuc.
