At the press conference introducing the ceremony

60 years ago, President Ho Chi Minh praised the Ha Nam provincial Party Committee, troops and people for their initiatives in drought prevention during his visit to the province. He presented the flag “Best drought prevention” to Binh Luc district and visited Cat Tuong dyke in An Hoa commune (An My commune now) which helped save local rice fields from drought. He also visited a local convalescence center for wounded soldiers and sent best regards to other wounded soldiers being cared in the locality.

Addressing the press conference, Tran Duc Thuan, Chairman of the Commission for Information and Education of the Ha Nam provincial Party Committee and Deputy Head of the ceremony organizing board, emphasized the importance of the ceremony, saying that it would be a chance for local cadres, Party members and people to express their gratitude to President Ho Chi Minh and to further study and follow President Ho Chi Minh’s thought, morals and lifestyle, contributing to local development

At the ceremony, outstanding collectives and individuals in studying and following President Ho Chi Minh’s thought, morals and lifestyle in 2017 will be honored and other meaningful activities will take place.
