NDO/VNA – President Tran Dai Quang has stressed the significant role of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union (HCMCYU) and youngsters in national growth amidst the challenges and opportunities brought by Industry 4.0 and the country’s accelerated reform and international integration.

He made the statement at a meeting with a delegation of 87 outstanding HCMCYU members who won the Ly Tu Trong Award 2018 in Hanoi on the occasion of the 87th founding anniversary of the union (March 26).

The State leader highlighted the pioneering role and contributions of the members of the union and youngsters to the victory of the country’s revolution.

Noting that 2018 is an important year in implementing the 12th Party National Congress’ resolution, he asked the union to strengthen its education on revolutionary ideology among youngsters, while reforming its communications methods to popularise the Marxism-Leninism and Ho Chi Minh Thought, as well as the traditions of the Communist Party of Vietnam.

The union should enhance its performance in implementing revolutionary movements, projects and works, as well as voluntary campaigns, especially in remote, border and island areas, he said.

He asked the officials of the union to take the lead in researching and applying the achievements of Industry 4.0, as well as in the start-up movement.

The State leader affirmed that the Party and State always pay special attention to the building of the union and the development of the younger generation, expressing his hope that youngsters across the country would continue promoting the glorious tradition of the country, thus making further attainments and more contributions to national construction and defence.

Over the past 87 years, the HCMCYU has gathered and educated the Vietnamese youth to uphold the spirit of national independence and socialism.

In wartime, the union acted as a powerful force contributing to the victory of the revolution.

In the period of peace, national reform and integration, the union has played a pioneering role in many voluntary movements to accelerate poverty reduction and help youngsters in economic development.
