Extending his warm sentiments to the children, the State leader said that the protection, care and education of children, especially those from ethnic minority groups, remote, border and island areas, have always been a priority for the Party, State and the whole of society.

The President expressed his delight at the efforts made by the children to overcome difficulties during the prolonged pandemic to achieve high academic results and actively engage in activities organised by the Ho Chi Minh Vanguard Children’s Union.
He said he hopes the children will continue to promote national traditions and follow President Ho Chi Minh’s teachings, while learning knowledge and skills to create firm foundation for their future and continuing to maintain the cultural identities of their ethnic groups.
President Phuc asked ministries, sectors and localities to pay greater attention to creating more favourable conditions for the care and education of adolescents and children, while effectively implementing Party policies and State laws regarding ethnic affairs and the socio-economic development of mountainous and ethnic minority-inhabited areas, with priority given to assisting children from ethnic minority groups, mountainous and island areas.
