Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong paid a working visit to Loc Thuy commune, Quang Binh province on February 5, continuing his tour to inspect Party congress preparations at grassroots level in the central region.

The Party leader showed his delight learning that Loc Thuy, the homeland of the late General Vo Nguyen Giap, reduced its poor households to 3.3 percent and ensured all people are accessible to power and clean water.

The living conditions of the commune’s population have been improved visibly as up to 90 percent of its labourers have regular jobs, the leader heard.

Selected to hold a Party congress that can provide a model for other localities in the province, the Loc Thuy communal Party committee has well prepared in terms of crafting documents and organising congresses at grassroots level.

The Party General Secretary expressed hope that the Party committee, administration and residents of Loc Thuy will build on their achievements to make forward progress in socio-economic development and Party building.

On the occasion, he visited and offered incense at the commemorative house dedicated to late General Vo Nguyen Giap, the legendary military leader who rendered great service and exceptional contributions to the revolutionary cause of the Party and nation.

Earlier, he had a working session with authorities of Quang Tri province, and offered incense to heroic martyrs at Truong Son National Martyrs Cemetery and Road 9 cemetery.-VNA
