Hanoi (VNA) – On the occasion of the Lunar New Year 2018, President Tran Dai Quang offered greetings to all Vietnamese nationwide and in foreign countries, wishing them and people around the world a new year of peace, friendship, happiness and prosperity.

In his message, the State leader noted that last year, the Party, people and army were united and made efforts to overcome difficulties, attaining outstanding achievements, particularly in socio-economy, defence, security, diplomacy and Party building.

The position and prestige of Vietnam were further promoted, showing the firmness and wisdom of the country. This was supported by the entire Vietnamese people and lauded by the international community, thus helping to step up the country’s development, he wrote.

President Quang called on each Vietnamese, with a new determination and trust in the Party and State’s leadership and the bright future of the nation, to bring into play patriotism, self-reliance and solidarity, and press on with reform and creativity to gain even greater victories in national development, thereby contributing to peace, stability, national independence, democracy and progress in the world.

He expressed his belief that in the New Year, with new opportunities and new driving forces, Vietnam will be successful.-VNA
