PM launches emulation movement towards Hanoi’s millennium

Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung on June 14 launched a national emulation movement to mark the 1,000th anniversary of Thang Long-Hanoi.

Addressing the launch ceremony in Hanoi, PM Dung recalled President Ho Chi Minh’s appeal for a national patriotic movement in June 11, 1948, which has since then evolved robustly, creating a momentum and great power for national construction and development.

To make the movement successful, the PM asked sectors and branches to bring into full play the strength of the entire political system in order to rally the entire society.

Emulation activities should be combined with implementation of Party and State resolutions on this year’s socio-economic development as well as the Government resolutions to curb economic decline, maintain a growth rate, and ensure social welfare, the Government leader said.

He called on all agencies and sectors to celebrate the capital city’s 1,000th anniversary with practical deeds.

Hanoi must take lead in the movement, focusing on implementation of solutions to prevent economic decline, maintain a rational growth rate, and ensure social welfare for its citizens in addition to completing major constructions for its 1,000th anniversary, PM Dung said.

He urged the city’s authorities to promote Hanoians’ thousand-year culture and lifestyle, enhance urban management and build a Green-Clean-Beautiful city and to promote its image overseas and create more opportunities for cooperation and development./.
