Hanoi (VNA) –
The Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) will work harder to continue performing well its role as a bridge between the Party and the State and people and the common house of the national great unity bloc, said President of the VFF Central Committee Tran Thanh Man.

In 2019, the organization of the 9th National Congress for the 2019-2024 tenure will be the prime task of the VFF, Man said in an interview granted to the media on the occasion of the Lunar New Year (Tet) holiday.

He said the VFF chapters at all levels will continue reforming communications methods and proactively working with local administrations in providing information for the public to miminize the occurrence of pressing and complicated issues.

They will focus on carrying out productively the VFF-initiated campaigns, especially the campaign “the entire people unite to build new rural areas and civilized urban areas”.

The VFF will expand the national great unity bloc by working closely with the whole political system to translate into deeds the viewpoints, guidance and policies of the Party and State on the bloc and harmonizing the common interests of all social strata, he noted.

It will continue working to gather synergy of Vietnamese in and outside the country towards the goal of building the country of peace, independence, unity, and territorial integrity so the people will be wealthy while the nation is strong with democracy, justice, and civilization, the official said.

Promoting democracy and maintaining disciplines in society will contribute to consolidating the national great unity bloc, he said.

The front and its organization members must work as a “firm bridge” between the people and the Party and the State so the people can proactively contribute their opinions and engage in discussing important issues of the country, he said.

The VFF chapters at all level will proactively coordinate with local administrations to tackle legitimate pressing issues lodged by people, along with taking part in fine-tuning the legal system to ensure people deliver their aspirations via mass organizations and the VFF.
