At the event, General Van emphasized the significance of the competition, saying that it is an opportunity to evaluate the results of information dissemination and education over the past time. Information dissemination activities have helped raise servicewomen’s awareness and responsibility in preserving and promoting the virtues and traditions of Uncle Ho’s soldiers as well as of studying and following President Ho Chi Minh’s thought, morals, and lifestyle.

Van said that the contest also offered an opportunity for servicewomen to meet and share experience in enriching their knowledge as well as their skills and effective methods to conduct activities at women’s union organizations. It was to popularize creative models and outstanding servicewomen who recorded achievements in emulation movements.
