President Vo Van Thuong on May 13 attended a ceremony to launch a program to provide housing support to poor households in the northern province of Dien Bien, which aims to build 7,000-8,000 houses for the needy in the locality and some Northwestern provinces within one year.

The program is expected to raise funds worth up to VND 400 billion (1 USD 7.05 million) as well as working hours and construction materials from donors.

Addressing the event, President Thuong called on businesses, organizations, collectives and individuals inside and outside the country to join hands in implementing the program, promoting the mutual support tradition of the Vietnamese people.
He lauded the Vietnam Fatherland Front for the idea, which aims to improve living conditions for local people in Dien Bien, a location attached to the glorious Dien Bien Phu Victory nearly 70 years ago, where local residents are still facing many difficulties.
The program showed the determination to ensure that all local households have safe shelters and sustainably escape from poverty, the President said.
He asked the local Party Committees and administrations of Dien Bien and northwestern provinces to show stronger performance in managing and optimizing support resources and effectively implementing solutions to ensure social welfare and assist locals to get rid of poverty and become richer.
Along with promoting its historical tradition and cultural values, the provinces should mobilize all resources for their fast and sustainable development, he said.
The State leader also requested Party and Government agencies from the central to local levels to pay greater attention to effectively realizing policies to promote the socio-economic development of mountainous areas in general and Dien Bien in particular, focusing on implementing the national target programs on new-style rural area building, sustainable poverty reduction and boosting socio-economic growth of ethnic minority-inhabited and mountainous areas.
He directed the VFF, organizations, and media agencies to encourage people to rise from poverty and support far-flung areas.
