NDO – A conference was held in Dong Ha city, Quang Tri province, on September 28, to honour 60 exemplary models of the movement encouraging people to safeguard national sovereignty and security in the Vietnam – China and Vietnam – Laos border areas in the 2008-2018 period.

The honourees were acknowledged for encouraging their descendants, families and fellow villagers to follow the Party’s guidelines and State’s policies and laws, while raising a high sense of responsibility in maintaining political security and social order in their living areas.

They were also praised for fully observing the policies on ethnic affairs and religion and for helping to consolidate and promote the great national unity bloc.

Over the past recent years, the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee has coordinated with the Border Guard High Command in implementing programmes on popularising laws to ethnic groups in border areas, as well as fostering friendly activities between the peoples living throughout the Vietnam – China and Vietnam – Laos border areas, protecting forests and promoting local festivals.

Such programmes have received great support and participation from the elders and patriarchs in the community, who have actively contributed to encouraging their locales’ participation in patriotic movements, uniting people in fostering local socio-economic development, and building a borderline of peace, friendship, cooperation and development.
