Hanoi (VNA) – The 6th National Congress of the Vietnam War Veterans’ Association (VWVA) will take place from December 13-15, heard a press conference held in Hanoi on November 22.

According to VWVA Vice Chairman Lieutenant General Nguyen Song Phi, the congress will draw the participation of 510 delegates representing more than 3 million members nationwide.

It is set to review and evaluate results achieved in the implementation of the 5th Congress’s resolution while focusing discussion on orientations, tasks, standards and solutions in the new tenure, and electing a new executive board for the 2017-2022 tenure.

In the previous tenure, the association and its chapters at all levels made efforts to reduce poverty sustainably, promote charity activities and help each other improve livelihoods, making contributions to the nation’s socio-economic development.

In addition, the VWVA’s chapters worked closely with localities to consolidate the political system at grassroots level and develop a pure and strong association. They also contributed to preventing corruption and social misbehaviours and defeating all “peace evolution” schemes to ensure political stability and social order.-VNA
