Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has issued a decree to provide better care for people credited with revolutionary services and social policy beneficiaries.
Mr Dung has underscored the need for public response to “Paying the Debt of Gratitude” movements and celebrations for the 65th anniversary of the War Invalids’ and Martyrs’ Day (July 27).
More attention should be paid to improving the living conditions of families of those who contributed to the nation’s past struggles against foreign aggressors, and encouraging young people to uphold revolutionary traditions and actively participate in national defence, he said.
Following the Government leader’s instructions, a general meeting will be held in Hanoi on July 27 and broadcast live on VTV1. A national conference will also be organized in the central city of Danang in July to honour outstanding individuals and organizations in recognition of their tremendous contributions to the country.
PM Dung also called for the upgrade and better care of martyr’s cemeteries nationwide.
