Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc on March 20 called on young people to continue promoting their voluntary role in the implementation of the country’s common tasks involving labour issues, economic development, cultural preservation, political stability, and defence-security reinforcement.
He made the statement while working with the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union Central Committee in Hanoi on the occasion of the Youth Month 2019.
The PM asked youth union organisations to focus on building a generation of young people with sufficient capabilities, qualifications, skills, and spirit to meet the requirements of nation-building and defence in the context of international integration.
