NDO – Thirty collectives and individuals representing outstanding Vietnamese people around the country were honoured at the 2017 ‘Vietnam Glory’ programme held at the Hanoi Cultural Friendship Palace on May 20.

The event was attended by Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc.

This year’s programme aimed to honour these collectives and individuals for their hugely significant contributions to the country’s socio-economic development, science, technology, security and defence, as well as typical examples in patriotic emulation movements and the cause of national construction and defence over the past 30 years of Doi Moi (Renewal).

Addressing the awards ceremony, PM Phuc appreciated the efforts and contributions made by these collectives and individuals honoured at the programme.

He expressed his hope that the honourees would continue to uphold the tradition and their achievements to continue in dedicating their enthusiasm and intelligence to the country’s development.

The PM believes that there will be more and more outstanding collectives and individuals in all fields around the country.

The Government leader asked the Vietnam General Confederation of Labour to continue to enhance the work of detecting, fostering and communicating with outstanding collectives and individuals.

He also urged ministries and agencies at all levels to create favourable conditions to replicate typical examples in order to strongly develop patriotic emulation movements, contributing to improving labour productivity, product quality and overall competitiveness.

Chairman of the Vietnam General Confederation of Labour Bui Van Cuong said that the honourees were pioneers in the development of their agencies and localities during the Doi Moi process, leaving a lasting impression within their societies.

Since the first launch 13 years ago, there have been 209 collectives and individuals honoured at the ‘Vietnam Glory’ programme.
