Tay Ninh (VNA) – President Truong Tan Sang paid a visit and delivered greetings to locals and authorities of the southern province of Tay Ninh on February 8, the first day of the Lunar New Year (Tet).

At the Central Office for South Vietnam relic site in Tan Lap commune, Tan Bien district, he called for more efforts from the relic site’s staff in introducing work and activities of those who worked at the Office during the struggle for national liberation to domestic and foreign visitors.

President Sang offered incense to late Party General Secretary Nguyen Van Linh, late Chairman of the Ministers’ Council Pham Hung, late Prime Minister Vo Van Kiet and General Nguyen Chi Thanh at the relic.

The same day, the President extended Tet greetings to staff of the Vietnam Moc Bai Joint Stock Company under the Republic of Korea’s Taekwang Group in the Moc Bai economic border gate zone in Ben Cau district.

He hailed the Group’s investment in Vietnam, suggesting Taekwang expand its investment in Tay Ninh.

A line-up of large enterprises have moved their plants to Vietnam to take advantage of preferential policies brought by the freshly-sealed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), he said. Supporting industries Taekwang Group is carrying out in Tay Ninh will benefit from the pact, he added.-VNA
