PM Nguyen Tan Dung, Chairman of the Central Council for Emulation and Rewards chairs the meeting.
At the meeting, the Vice Chairman of the Central Council for Emulation and Rewards, Tran Thi Ha presented a report reviewing emulation and reward activities in 2010. She stated that the Council had successfully undertaken many emulation activities including the eighth National Patriotic Emulation Movement, the movement to call on all people to respond to the celebrations of the 1000th anniversary of Thang Long - Hanoi and activities intended to learn from and follow the moral example of President Ho Chi Minh and others.
Such emulation movements have closely aligned with the implementation of the nation's political tasks, contributed to stabilising the macro economy, restoring economic growth and ensuring social welfare and order.
Members of the Council also raised their views on the 2010 report and proposed tasks for 2011. Some believed that in 2011 the emulation movements should focus on curbing inflation, stabilising macro economic growth, developing rural areas and ensuring social security.
Addressing the meeting, PM Dung said that emulation movements in the past year had made practical contributions to the nation's achievements in socio-economic development, hunger eradication and poverty reduction.
He also asked relevant agencies and units to enhance emulation movements nationwide to attract greater attention from the people and achieve positive results.
