Speaking at the event, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh, who is also Chairman of the council, said on June 11, 1948, President Ho Chi Minh issued the appeal for patriotic emulation, officially launching a nationwide movement to foster a spirit of patriotism within the entire Party, people and army.
Since then, it has truly become a widespread movement, extending from the lowlands to the islands and mountain and border areas. It encompasses both urban and rural areas with the active participation of people from walks of life, and has achieved significant results.
The role models, regardless of age, position or profession, shine with a spirit of patriotism, dynamism, creativity, daring to think and act, and taking responsibility for the common good. They exemplify determination, resilience, aspirations for progress and dedication to the community and society, he said.
On the occasion, he asked departments and agencies to effectively follow the Party and State’s policies and laws on emulation and reward, step up start-up and innovation movements, develop green, digital and circular economies.
Emulation movements must be in tandem with the Party building and rectification, the campaign on studying and following President Ho Chi Minh’s thought, morality and lifestyle; prevention and control of corruption, wastefulness, and negative phenomena; judicial and administrative reform. At the same time, national cultural identity must be preserved and upheld while external affairs and global integration must be stepped up, the PM noted.
