Secretary of the Hà Nội Party Committee Hoàng Trung Hải yesterday said he hoped youth would play a key role in developing the capital’s economy.
Speaking at a conference commending outstanding youth union secretaries held in Hà Nội on Wednesday, Hải emphasised youths’ roles in development.
The conference attracted nearly 600 secretaries of wards and district youth unions in the capital. It was held in response to the Month of Youth, and to welcome the 85th ceremony of the Hồ Chí Minh Communist Youth Union’s founding on March 26.
Hải said he highly appreciated young people’s contributions in blood donations, environmental protection, keeping traffic order and helping candidates with the university entrance exam every year.
He said that Việt Nam had joined the 12 Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) member countries, so the youth union’s activities must be reformed, attractive and suitable to the period of international integration.
“Youth should be cadres in economic restructuring by studying hard, working hard and being more creative to raise the capital’s competitive capacity,” Hải said.
Hải asked concerned organisations to pay more attention to youth affairs, and create good conditions for youth unions at different levels to join economic and political activities in their localities.
Organisations should assign work to young people that is suitable to their capacity, educational level and individual skills, he said.
At the conference, 85 outstanding youth union secretaries were awarded for the positive examples they set in terms of studying, working and volunteering in the community.
The youth union secretaries expressed their determination to uphold their achievements and continue to contribute to the city’s industrialisation and modernisation.
