Hanoi (VNA) – The Government and the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union should work together to create the most favorable environment for young people to take the lead in renovation and start-up activities and in tackling pressing social issues, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has said.

He chaired a working session between the Government and the Central Committee of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union in Hanoi on December 15 to review the implementation of the coordinating regulation between the two sides and discuss their future tasks. 

He hailed young people’s contributions to the country’s socio-economic development, giving special emphasis on their part in maintaining social order and stability at a time when the Formosa-caused environmental pollution incident occurred.

He noted the outcomes of the implementation of the coordinating regulation between the Government and the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union, especially in the generation of jobs for young people.

However, he pointed out that the youth union was slow in carrying a number of projects assigned by the Government, such as the one on supporting worker young people, and the other on developing young people-managed islands.

In the coming time, the Central Committee of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union needs to pay heed to educating and encouraging young people to take a more active role in promoting socio-economic development and safeguarding security, defence, and social order.

“Young people should lead in making renovations and launching start-ups to address employment issue,” he said.

The Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union Central Committee was assigned to work with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment to map out a project on young people’s involvement in protecting the environment and responding to climate change.-VNA
