Last year, the council organized more than 100 defense-security courses of all levels for high-ranking officials of State agencies, leaders of organizations, religious dignitaries, reputable persons of ethnic minority communities, and businesspeople.

Outstanding individuals at the event

While the city’s Department of Education and Training directed local high schools to teach the defense-security subject, the city’s Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union chapter worked with military and police units to hold a number of military semesters for local students.

In addition, HCM City actively renovated methods and contents of defense-security education via press and media platforms and artistic exchanges, so as to contribute to raising local people’s awareness and sense of responsibility for strengthening the whole people's defense and security posture and ensuring public order and security.

At the event, delegates also pointed out several shortcomings that must soon be overcome, as well as discussed approaches to effectively implement defense-security education missions this year with a focus on improving the quality of defense-security education for employees with the city-based businesses.

On this occasion, the municipal People’s Committee and the council presented certificates of merit to individuals and groups with outstanding records in this work in 2018.
