Hanoi (VNA) – Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh attended a ceremony held in Hanoi on December 28 to commend the exemplars in a 75,000-initiative programme launched by the Vietnam General Confederation of Labour (VGCL).

VGCL President Nguyen Dinh Khang said the 75,000-initiative programme was carried out from March 10 to May 31, 2021, the time when the entire country was joining hands to combat COVID-19 and realise the “twin targets”, so as to inspire patriotism, creativity, and self-resilience among workers, public employees, and labourers nationwide.

He noted this programme attracted 250,177 initiatives, equivalent to over 300 percent of the target. They cover a wide range of fields and sectors, and most of the initiatives have generated concrete benefits, worth over 148.9 trillion VND (6.5 billion USD) in total.

Basing on this programme’s success, the VGCL Presidium has implemented another calling for 1 million initiatives to surmount difficulties and defeat the COVID-19 pandemic. The new drive, taking place from September this year to 2023, has attracted a large number of civil servants, public employees, and workers across the country.

In his remarks, PM Chinh emphasised that during the struggle for national independence in the past and the national development process at present, the Party and State have always treasured the initiatives and experience of people from all social strata, especially the working class.

He asked relevant ministries, sectors, and all-level authorities to enhance coordination to facilitate activities of trade unions and, especially, apply initiatives of union members, workers, and public employees so as to make new strides in labour productivity, thus helping Vietnam develop fast and sustainably.

At the event, the Government and VGCL leaders presented merit certificates to the collectives and individuals with outstanding initiatives./.
