Vietnam Farmers’ Union receives Gold Star Order


QĐND – Wednesday, October 13, 2010, 20:34 (GMT+7)

The Vietnam Farmers’ Union (VFU) received the Gold Star Order for the second time at a ceremony in Hanoi on October 13 for their 80th anniversary.


Attending the ceremony were former Party leader Le Kha Phieu, politburo member and member of the Central Party Committee’s Secretariat, Truong Tan Sang and State Vice President Nguyen Thi Doan.


Over the past 80 years, the VFU has renewed practical activities and called on farmers to join revolutionary movements for national liberalisation, construction and defence.


The Union has worked closely with socio-economic organisations to provide vocational training for farmers and helped them develop production models, which has contributed substantially to the economic restructuring of agriculture and rural development.


The “Studying and Following President Ho Chi Minh’s Moral Example” Campaign received a positive response from farmers throughout the country with the VFU’s assistance and proved effective.


VFU Chairman Nguyen Quoc Cuong said the Union will continue to intensify communication and educational activities to raise farmers’ awareness of the role and tasks of the Union as well as educate Vietnam’s peasant class in the cause of national industrialisation, modernisation and international economic integration.


It is essential for the Union to exert more efforts to overcome difficulties and challenges to build a politically and ideologically strong organisation, which involves capable and creative members, emphasised Cuong.


In his speech, Mr Sang praised the significant achievements the Union has recorded over the past 80 years and called on the Union to make greater contributions to developing a modern and efficient agricultural system thus helping improve farmers’ living standards.


Mr Sang underlined the need to introduce Party and State guidelines and policies to farmers and encourage them to carry out patriotic emulation movements effectively.

In Uncategorized on August 18, 2010 at 11:23 am

A seminar on the life and career of martyr and poet Le Anh Xuan was held by the Ho Chi Minh City Writers’ Association on August 17.

Poet Le Anh Xuan (L) and writer Anh Duc.

The meeting attracted many writers, poets, critics and poet lovers.

Le Anh Xuan, whose real name is Ca Le Hien, was born in a traditional cultural family with a revolutionary orientation in 1940. His father is Professor Ca Van Thinh.

He devoted all his short life for poetry and revolutionary. After graduating from the faculty of history, he was invited to teach at the university and selected to study abroad. However he chose the hardest way. He came back to the South and took part in the resistance war.

Critic Hoai Thanh said that Ca Le Hien is one of the excellent poets in the country.

Although he spent only 10 years in writing poetry, he left immortal works about the land and people to readers.

The martyr died in an attack by the American troops in 1968. He was granted the title of “Hero of the People’s Armed Forces”.

Triet said that the award was in recognition of the great contribution to national construction and defense that the youth volunteers have made.


“The founding and history of the Vietnam youth volunteers’ forces are associated with milestone events in the nation’s glorious history, such as the wars of resistance, the victory at Dien Bien Phu, the struggles for national salvation and reunification and the movement for building new settlements,” said the State leader.


He reiterated that the Party and State have paid a lot attention to updating policies and regulations on social welfare in favor of the youth volunteers to improve their living conditions.


Triet hailed the Ex-Youth Volunteers’ Association as a bridge that has spanned different generations of veterans to help each other in life and work together with reducing poverty.


He urged the association to uphold the force’s tradition from generation to generation in an effort to safeguard the country and contribute to building a prosperous and powerful Vietnam.


Also present at the celebrations was the Vice Chairman of the National Assembly, Nguyen Duc Kien, who awarded the youth volunteers’ force in the battle of Dien Bien Phu and the youth volunteer force codenamed K-53 with the title People’s Armed Forces Hero.


The Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union took the opportunity to confer certificates of merits on 60 individuals including ex-youth volunteers, who fulfilled their missions during the wars and volunteers during the new era of development for their great achievements in the movement to “Study and work following Ho Chi Minh’s Moral Example”.


The meeting on the morning of July 14 was also attended by the former General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam Le Kha Phieu, CPV Politburo member and Hanoi Party Secretary Pham Quang Nghi as well as 1,000 youth volunteers and veterans.


On July 15, 60 years ago, the first youth volunteers’ force was founded to provide logistical services for the war under the decision of the then President Ho Chi Minh.
