NDO – Politburo member and Permanent Deputy Prime Minister Truong Hoa Binh chaired a national teleconference on January 19 to review the Vietnam Youth Development Strategy in the 2016 - 2020 period.

The conference also reviewed a pilot project to select young intellectuals who have volunteered to work in rural and mountainous areas in the 2013-2020 period, in the period of 2013-2020 (Project 500 young intellectuals), and a project on improving state management capacity for commune-level young cadres and civil servants in the 2014-2020 period (Project 567).

In his speech, Deputy PM Truong Hoa Binh spoke highly of efforts made by ministries, branches and localities for organising the review of the projects at their units in a timely manner, as well as seriously implementing the targets and contents defined in the Vietnam Youth Development Strategy.

The biggest imprint in this period is that the Government submitted to the 14th National Assembly for the adoption of the Law on Youth 2020, he said, adding that this is an important foundation for ministries and sectors to continue concretising and perfecting policies and laws on the youth.

Deputy PM Binh also asked the Ministry of Home Affairs to take responsibility and coordinate with ministries, sectors and localities to evaluate more clearly the results achieved, and at the same time point out limitations and weaknesses to devise detailed solutions.

More attention should be paid to training and fostering the young generation in order to meet the requirements of innovation and application of high-tech science, thus contributing to socio-economic development and international integration, he noted.
