NDO – Vice President Dang Thi Ngoc Thinh and her entourage visited and presented gifts to local workers and policy beneficiaries in the northern province of Hoa Binh on January 8, on the occasion of the upcoming Lunar New Year (Tet) 2020.

Attending a gathering to celebrate Tet with workers at R Technical Research Vietnam Co., Ltd. in Hoa Binh City, Vice President Thinh conveyed her New Year wishes to all local officials and workers, urging Hoa Binh authorities to continue to pay more attention and care to local ethnic minorities and to promote more investment attraction in order to increase budget revenue and create jobs for local labourers.
