The Ministry of Labour, Ward Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA), in collaboration with the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) will conduct a nationwide assessment of the implementation of policies towards people who rendered services to the revolution in 2014 and 2015.

Speaking at an online training workshop on March 18 for those involved in the review, President of the VFF Central Committee Nguyen Thien Nhan said the drive aims to detect any shortcomings in these policies and their enforcement so that they can be corrected timely.

He said this will be the largest ever review of this kind, to be carried out at all 11,000 communes, wards and towns across the country.

The Vietnamese Party and State has put in place numerous preferential policies targeting war martyrs and their families, Vietnamese heroic mothers, war invalids, sick soldiers, war veterans affected by toxic chemicals, people who contributed to the revolution and former war volunteers.

MoLISA Minister Pham Thi Hai Chuyen affirmed that while the policies have benefitted most people who rendered services to the nation, there are still problems in their enforcement, prompting the evaluation.

Municipal and provincial people’s committees are requested to present the outcomes of the review in their localities to the MoLISA and the VFF Central Committee in August 2015.

The VFF and the MoLISA will submit results of the check-up to the Government and the National Assembly in October, 2015.-VNA
