He urged the chapter to further promote emulation movements towards calling for more dedication, innovation and contributions to the nation’s development.

Initiated by the chapter since 2006, the programme has so far honoured 68 young people.

It is expected to promote more examples of outstanding young who dedicate themselves to the city's youth movements.-VNA
