NDO - Chairwoman of the National Assembly Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan has said that she highly appreciated the significant contributions of village elders in the Central Highlands to the region’s socio-economic development.

She made the remarks at a conference on March 19, with 224 delegates representing more than 3,000 village elders of ethnic groups in Kon Tum, Gia Lai, Dak Lak, Dak Nong and Lam Dong provinces in attendance.

Ten years ago, village elders from these five provinces signed a document pledging their allegiance to the Party and motherland, and expressing their determination to develop the Central Highlands in a comprehensive manner.

Chairwoman Ngan said she expects the village elders to continue encouraging local residents to follow the Party’s guidelines and the State’s laws, to uphold fine traditions and eliminate superstitious customs.

She also asked them to promote solidarity, remain vigilant against the plots of hostile forces and take part in the emulation movements launched by the Party and State.

The National Assembly leader expressed her belief that the solidarity of ethnic groups in the Central Highlands will always be strengthened so that the region will be able to become a wealthy region with a good cultural life, political stability and strong defence.

On the occasion, Chairwoman Ngan handed presents to the village elders of Central Highlands provinces.

The Central Highlands is home to over 5 million people belonging to 47 ethnic groups with their own cultural characteristics and ways of life.
