In discussing the poor living conditions of disadvantaged households in the two communes, Hue emphasised that the Party and State’s policy is to ensure all Vietnamese people can enjoy a warm Tet. Therefore, over the past years, the Party, State, social organisations, and individual donors have paid particular attention to caring for those less fortunate during the Tet holidays.

Priority has been given to improving not only the material, but also spiritual life of people, especially those living in disadvantaged circumstances.

He added that the State is speeding up agricultural restructuring, new-style rural area building, production development, and job generation in rural areas, thus raising the living standards of local people.

The Deputy PM asked local Party organisations and authorities to continue supporting poor households and policy beneficiaries, and to encourage them to exert efforts to overcome their difficulties.

On this occasion, he presented 100 gifts worth 1.3 million VND (56 USD) each to poor households, and 300 gifts worth 500,000 VND each to underprivileged students. Authorities from Hoa Binh province also granted 100 presents worth 1.3 million VND each to local poor families. –VNA
