PM encourages youths to become pioneers in all sectors

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has urged youngsters to become pioneers in all sectors, from socio-economic development to national defence.   

“I hope that many young people would become ‘warriors’ in start-up, technology, global trade and national defence,” he said at the closing session of the 11th National Congress of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union (HCYU) in Hanoi on December 13. 

The leader noted that it is necessary to implement mechanisms and policies, especially at the Governmental level, to promote start-up spirit among youths. 

He called on young people to contribute more to the nationwide start-up campaign, aiming to establish 500,000 enterprises by 2020 and raise the total number to over 1 million. 

“The Government will continuously review policies towards youths and issue new mechanisms and policies to promote start-up spirit among youngsters, generate jobs and deal with urgent issues,” the PM said. 

Besides, young people should be pioneers in applying achievements of the fourth industrial revolution, he said, urging the HCYU to strongly support youths in study and scientific research. 

Pointing to a range of difficulties and challenges facing the country, especially natural disasters, plus threats of peaceful evolution, corruption and other social bad deeds, PM Phuc underlined the need for young people to be better aware of such issues. 

He also requested a regular working mechanism between the Government and the HCYU Central Committee and all-level authorities to collect more opinions from youths. 

During the session, Deputy PM Vu Duc Dam and First Secretary of the 11th HCYU Central Committee Le Quoc Phong signed a Joint Resolution on cooperation mechanism between the Government and the HCYU Central Committee during 2017-2022. 

The delegates then approved a resolution of the 11th National Congress of the HCYU Central Committee, which sets forth major objectives, tasks and projects for the union in the next five years. -VNA/VNP
