Party chief attends national great unity festival in Hanoi

Hanoi, November 16 (VNA) – Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong on November 15 shared joy over the national great unity festival with locals in Thap Thuong Village, Dan Phuong district, one of the most outstanding examples of a new-style rural area in Hanoi.

Home to 280 households, the village in Song Phuong Commune has strengthened solidarity among residents to reap significant achievements across fields.

The proportion of medium- and high-income families is over 80 percent. Five households are still under the poverty line.

The local per-capita income goes up to nearly 29 million VND (1,305 USD) per annum.

More than 93 percent of households were recognised as cultural families for their contributions to environmental hygiene, social order and safety.

The Party leader attributed the outcome to local solidarity and implementation of the Party and State’s policies.

He highlighted the crucial role the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) played in upholding national unity and promoting public engagement in the causes of national construction and defence.

He urged the village to further promote the national spirit, especially the capital’s heroic and civilised traditions, to make more remarkable achievements in the context of market mechanisms and integration.

On the occasion, the Party chief presented gifts to local families who performed well in national unity movements. He also offered incense and planted a commemorative tree at Dan Phuong’s Monument to Fallen Soldiers.
