According to Chairman of Vinh Long Provincial People’s Committee Lu Quang Ngoi, the locality has visited and presented pre-Tet gifts worth over VND7 billion to more than 23,500 revolutionary contributors.

Addressing the event, PM Phuc applauded Vinh Long province’s comprehensive socio-economic achievements, as well as the local authorities’ effort to care for workers and needy people.
