Hanoi (VNA) - The 10th National Patriotic Emulation Congress is scheduled to take place at the National Convention Centre in Hanoi on December 9-10 with the participation of 2,300 delegates.

Head of the central emulation and rewards committee Pham Huy Giang told the media on December 7 that the event will see the presence of leaders from the Party, State, National Assembly, Government, and Vietnam Fatherland Front; veteran revolutionaries; Heroic Vietnamese Mothers; and exemplars in various sectors, from economy, society, security, and defence to industry, agriculture, and science-technology.

Among the participants are 2,020 official delegates and 280 guests, he said, noting that the eldest delegate is Heroic Vietnamese Mother Ngo Thi Quyt, 95, from HCM City, while the youngest is 10-year-old Phan Nguyen Thai Bao, a fourth grader at the Binh Phong Primary School in Chau Thanh district, southern Tay Ninh province.

With the theme “Solidarity, creativity, and emulation to build and safeguard the Fatherland”, the congress will review the outcomes of patriotic emulation movements and rewards activities during 2015-2020, set targets and orientations for 2020-2025, and honour role models in patriotic emulation campaigns over the last five years.

It looks to promote the great national unity and create new momentum for the realisation of economic, cultural, social, defence, and security tasks and the resolution from the 12th National Party Congress.

The congress will also see the launch of emulation movements in different fields and also call for the continued acceleration of four other key movements: “The whole nation joins in efforts to build new-style rural areas”, “The whole nation joins hands for the poor - Leaving no one behind”, “Vietnamese businesses integrate and develop”, and “Cadres, civil servants, public employees emulate in the execution of workplace norms”, according to Giang./.
