Hanoi (VNA) – First Secretary of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union (HCMCYU) Central Committee and Chairman of the Vietnam Youth Federation (VYF) Le Quoc Phong asked for promoting exchanges between the two countries’ youth during talks with President of the Union of Youth Federations of Cambodia (UYFC) Hun Many in Hanoi on August 29.

Phong informed his guest about major activities of the Vietnamese youth over the past years and VYF’s orientations in the next period, saying that the 11th National Congress of the HCMCYU was held successfully in late 2017.

He said in the next five years, the VYF will launch three major campaigns, namely voluntary youth, creative youth and vanguard youth in national defence, and three programmes accompanying young people in study, start-ups and social skill improvement.

The host suggested promoting the exchange of voluntary youths in localities of each side, especially in border provinces, offering mutual support in personnel training and at regional and global forums, and signing cooperation agreements for the new period.

Many, for his part, said UYFC chapters at all levels have raised young people’s awareness of their role in working for Cambodian people, abiding by law, and striving to become a core force of Cambodia.

He said in the near future, the UYFC will step up voluntary youth movement; form links with domestic and foreign organisations, communities and youth unions; ensure security, safety, legal justice and freedom for young people; add their demand into all-level development programmes; and hold vocational training courses on science-technology and social skills for them.-VNA
