NDO – Permanent Deputy Prime Minister Truong Hoa Binh hosted a reception on May 8 for a delegation of national contributors from the Central Highlands province of Kon Tum on the occasion of their trip to Hanoi to visit the President Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum.

Speaking at the meeting, the deputy PM emphasised the significant devotions of fallen soldiers, war invalids, sick soldiers and revolutionary contributory families to the country’s current development achievements.

He spoke highly of the Kon Tum authorities’ efforts in caring for national contributors and policy beneficial families, hailing it as a sacred obligation that should be continuously implemented by the province in the future.

Deputy PM Binh asked Kon Tum to continue widely disseminating the Party and State’s policies on preferential mechanisms for national contributors to all strata of the people; effectively implement the PM’s Directive No. 14/CT-TTg on enhancing care for national contributors; and accelerate the building of gratitude funds at all levels to ensure good care for invalids, martyrs’ families and heroic Vietnamese mothers.

He also urged the province to perform well in the work of collecting martyrs’ remains, while calling on enterprises, organisations, mass unions and individuals to participate in the gratitude movement, thereby allowing national contributors’ families to lead stable lives with a living standard equal to or higher than the average level of the local people.

So far, Kon Tum has established records, received and resolved policies for over 51,000 national contributors, including 37,700 people who joined the country’s past resistance wars. More than 5,600 local people currently enjoy monthly allowances. By the end of 2018, 91.3% of policy beneficiary families and national contributors in the province had an equal or higher living standard than the average living standards of locals.
