Ninh Binh (VNA) – Born and bred in Kim Son district, in the northern province of Ninh Binh, President Tran Dai Quang always held close sentiments towards his hometown.

During a meeting with the provincial authorities in 2016, when he undertook the position of State leader, he attributed his success to the support and education of the Party, State, and people, including the Party unit, armed forces, compatriots, and voters of Ninh Binh.

He reminded the provincial Party Committee, authorities, and people to develop the locality economically and attract more tourists.

On the occasion of the Lunar New Year celebrations in 2017, he visited and presented gifts to war invalids and ill soldiers at the Nho Quan convalescent centre.

He said that care for war invalids and ill soldiers is a consistent policy of the Party, State, and people. He expressed his delight that the provincial authorities realised well the Party guidelines and State policies, including caring for the health of war veterans.

On the occasion of the 71st anniversary of August Revolution and National Day (September 2) and ahead of the 2016-2017 new school year, the leader attended a ceremony to inaugurate Kim Son B and Kim Son C high schools.

The President lauded the Party committee and authorities of Ninh Binh province and Kim Son district, as well as philanthropists nationwide for upgrading education infrastructure to meet the demands of teaching and learning.

Congratulating the staff and students of Kim Son B and Kim Son C high schools on their studies in the new schools, he affirmed that the resolution adopted by the 12th National Party Congress set the foundations for comprehensive education reform and human resources development as a top national policy, towards turning Vietnam into a future-focused industrialised nation by 2020.

The leader expressed his hope that staff and students in Ninh Binh will strive to score new achievements, contributing to national development.

In his capacity as Minister of Public Security, General Tran Dai Quang founded and became Honorary Chairman of the Dinh Bo Linh study and talent encouragement fund. It has so far raised about 31 billion VND (1.34 million USD) from philanthropists and organisations.

It earmarked over 5 billion VND to honour nearly 1,200 poor students with outstanding academic performances, and donated about 4 billion VND to local education and talent encouragement funds.

Whenever the President visited his homeland, he left a deep impression on the provincial Party Committee, authorities, and people. Anyone who had the chance to meet the President found him close, friendly, and dedicated. –VNA
