Nhan Dan – Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung signed Directive No. 1973/CT-TTg on November 7 for continuing to promote the ‘Study and Follow President Ho Chi Minh’s Moral Example’ campaign.
The PM asked ministers, heads of ministerial-level agencies, Government agencies and chairmen of People's Committees of centrally-run cities and provinces to focus on organising and implementing the campaign among ministries, agencies and localities. The campaign expects to receive the continued active response and participation of the majority of cadres, Party members and people. Studying and following President Ho Chi Minh’s moral example should also be considered a regular task and responsibility of Party members, especially leaders of localities and agencies.
In addition, ministries, sectors and localities are asked to disseminate information about the campaign, praise outstanding followers of Ho Chi Minh’s example, address wrongdoings and fight waste and corruption.
The Prime Minister asked the Ministry of Education and Training and the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs to co-ordinate with relevant ministries, agencies and localities in implementing the project to educate students at universities, colleges and vocational training schools about professional ethical standards; and finish designing training programmes on President Ho Chi Minh’s morals and ethics to include in curricula at all levels of the national educational system.
The Directive also states that the Central Emulation and Rewards Council under the Ministry of Internal Affairs is responsible for acknowledging and praising collectives and individuals who are outstanding examples for the campaign.
The People's Committees of centrally-run cities and provinces have been asked to enhance leadership and directions and co-ordinate with Government agencies and Party committees at all levels, focusing on handling emerging issues in localities, especially those related to the ethics and responsibilities of public servants in all provincial, district and ward units.
