The cabinet leader was speaking during a dialogue with nearly 1,000 young people, representing over 9.9 million members of the Vietnam Youth Federation (VYF) nationwide. The event took place at the closing session of the 8th VYF eight National Congress in Hanoi on December 12.

PM Phuc acknowledged that the comments the youth contributed to the Government at the event were on a number of important policies, which facilitated the Government’s administration in some youth-related areas. In particular, there are good suggestions that affirmed the youth's determination for the cause of national construction and defence. Expressing his sincere thanks to them, PM Phuc stated that Vietnam's achievements today have been contributed by the youth.

However, according to him, the complicated situation in the world and the region poses challenges for Vietnam and young people. He urged the VYF to continue to mobilise the participation of a large number of young people at home and abroad to join hands for the national development.

The Government would cooperate better with the Central Committee of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union and the VYF to create a better environment for Vietnamese youth to promote their talent to serve the nation, PM Phuc affirmed.
