NDO – Politburo member and Secretary of the Party Central Committee (PCC) Truong Thi Mai has called on every youth union member to nurture their leading and voluntary spirit in the national cause of construction, defence and development.

Politburo member Mai, who is also Head of the PCC Commission for Mass Mobilisation, made the request at a ceremony held in Hanoi on March 19 to honour ten winners of the Vietnam Outstanding Youth Faces Award 2016.

She remarked that each winner of the group is an exemplary example of pioneering, persistence and desire to overcome difficulties as well as aspiration and devotion to serve the motherland and people.

She expressed her belief that the awards would fuel the motivation and aspiration of the winners to make further contributions in study and at work, asserting that the Party and State have developed guidelines and policies to create the most favourable conditions for young talents.

According to First Secretary of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union Central Committee Le Quoc Phong, since the award was launched 21 years ago, 220 young talents have been honoured.
