Secretary Hoang Trung Hai noted that National Resistance Day has inspired Hanoi authorities and people to work harder for the capital city’s development:

“We’ll continue to improve the growth quality and model, mobilize all internal and external resources and increase the economy’s self-reliance. Economic development must be closely associated with social equality, cultural development, environmental protection, response to climate change and the building of new-style rural areas”, stressed the municipal Party Secretary.
