Speaking at the launching ceremony, Senior Colonel Sinh said that the academy has set a goal to plant 10,000 green trees in 2021.

The program is a meaningful activity in response  to the tree-planting festival across the country and the government’s program of planting one billion trees, as well as to build a green, clean, and attractive school.

In addition, General Sinh also asked the academy to promote information dissemination among its teachers and cadets about the importance of tree-planting and encourage them to plant more trees to beautify their barracks.

After the launching ceremony, over 300 officers, instructors , and cadets of the academy planted more than 300 new trees in the school.
