The northernmost mountainous province of Ha Giang has created positive changes in social and economic fields, and the credit goes to the local Party committee and residents.

Making the remark while receiving 70 role models from the province in Hanoi on May 13, President Truong Tan Sang also expressed his hope that the province will further strive to raise the level of the people’s knowledge, boost the technology transfer, push up the building of the new-model rural area, and consolidate the people’s trust on the leadership of the Party and the management of the State.

He also said the province should bring into full play its tradition and popularise the models so as to obtain more achievements.

Representatives of the province, who are prominent in learning after President Ho Chi Minh’s moral example, asked the Party and the State to continue paying attention to Ha Giang to help it alleviate poverty and improve the material and spiritual life of locals in a rapid and sustainable way.

They also pledged to strive more in their study, solidarity, production and working after the late President.-VNA
