On behalf of the Party and State, NA Chairwoman Ngan presented the “Labour Hero in Renewal Period” title to the National Fund for Vietnamese Children (NFVC) and two individuals in recognition of their outstanding achievements in labour and creativity in 2009- 2019 period, contributing to the cause of socialism building and national safeguarding.
