Highlighting the significance of the event, Quang said that the Government has implemented many strategies and plans to give better protection, care and education to children, aiming to ensure their rights and make sure that they develop comprehensively and enjoy a healthy and safe life.

However, the country has seen many challenges in child care, protection and education, he stated, stressing the need to continue to fix current shortcomings and problems to give better care for children, the future of the country.

Quang asked ministries, sectors and the administrations at all levels to continue strengthening the communications work and implementation of the Party and State’s policy and laws regarding child protection and care, while diversifying summer activities for them.
