NDO – Permanent Vice Chairwoman of the National Assembly (NA) Tong Thi Phong has urged the Hanoi leaders to focus on further promoting the role of prestigious ethnic minority people across the city, considering it a key force in bringing the Party’s guidelines and policies and the State’s laws into life.

Politburo member Phong made the request during a meeting with more than 150 prestigious figures among Hanoi’s ethnic minority communities on November 14.

Congratulating the delegates for their exceptional performance in 2018, the senior NA official affirmed that the Party and State always see ethnic affairs and solidarity among ethnic groups as a strategic, fundamental and long-term issue of the revolutionary cause.

She asked Hanoi’s Party committees and authorities at all levels to continue synchronously implementing the Party’s policies and the State’s laws on ethnic affairs, effectively implementing the Party Central Committee’s ethnic policies, and supporting ethnic minority communities to develop production and reduce poverty.

Hailing the importance and decisiveness of the cultural exchange between ethnic communities to the survival of national culture, NA Vice Chairwoman Phong encouraged Hanoi to focus on summarising good cultural models to accelerate care for the cultural and spiritual lives of the ethnic minority communities, especially those in disadvantaged communes.

The city was also encouraged to pay attention to training and improving the quality of human resources in ethnic minority areas.

Hanoi currently accommodates over 92,000 ethnic minority people, accounting for 0.92% of the city’s total population.
