NDO/VNA – Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Nguyen Duc Chung visited the Evangelical Church of Vietnam (North) and the Hanoi Evangelical Church on February 1, ahead of the upcoming Lunar New Year (Tet) festival.

He expressed his thanks to Protestant dignitaries and followers for partnering with the city in many activities over the past years, especially in health check-ups and treatment to the poor, contributing to the city’s fulfillment of its socio-economic targets.

Last year, Hanoi met 20 socio-economic targets, including ensuring social welfares and improving local lives, Chung highlighted, adding the capital city was hailed as one of the top 10 dynamic cities by the James Lang Laselle at the World Economic Forum.
