Addressing at the event, Vice Chairman Le Anh Duong applauded the donors’ great contribution in the provincial VBD campaign, hoping that the Steering Boards for VBD of all levels should actively coordinate with the medical stations, schools and other agencies to effectively communicate and call for the residents’ consensus on the movement.
Besides, he urged the local authorities to pay due attention to facilitating the Steering Boards for VBD of all levels toward the best performances while the Fatherland Front’s Committee and the social-political organizations proactively call for the members’ participation as well as timely praise, honor and duplicate the exemplary models of VBD in the community, helping sustainably develop the movement.
