Hanoi (VNA) – The Vietnam War Veterans’ Association (VWVA) is the trustworthy mainstay of the Party, State and people, said Truong Thi Mai, head of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Mass Mobilisation.

At a working session with the VWVA Central Committee in Hanoi on June 3, Mai highlighted the association’s important role in building the Party and protecting the administration and people, as well as its contributions to national socio-economic development.

The association has also played an active role in monitoring social affairs and giving feedback back to the authorities, and educating young generations about patriotism and revolutionary heroism, she said.

Mai urged the association to realise contents relating to war veterans in the 12 th Party Congress’s Resolution while joining efforts to fight corruption, crimes and other bad deeds.

Established on December 6, 1989, the VWVA has soundly disseminated the Party’s resolutions and directives, as well as taking civil duty work in the new situation.

The association has encouraged its members to develop farm models and cooperatives, and establish businesses across sectors.

Besides, it has partnered with relevant agencies to actualise policies towards war veterans, families of war invalids and martyrs, and those who rendered services to the nation.

Of note, thanks to 107,000 pieces of information provided by the association’s chapters, more than 2.700 sets of remains of martyrs have been found.-VNA
