General Luong Cuong speaks at the event.

Speaking at the event, on behalf of the Standing Committee of the Central Military Commission and leaders of the Ministry of National Defense, General Cuong congratulated and praised the achievements of the Party Organization of Military Region 3 during the 2015-2020 term. 

Regarding missions in the 2020-2025 term, General Cuong asked the military region’s Party Organization to  embrace and effectively carry out resolutions and directives of the Party, State, the Central Military Commission, and the Ministry of National Defense. He also urged the military region to follow situational developments, especially at sea, on islands and in border areas and strictly maintain combat readiness.

The Party Organization of Military Region 3 should uphold and promote its core role and cooperate with local Party committees and authorities to build strong defense posture while focusing on strengthening defensive areas to meet the requirements of national protection in the current period.

General Cuong added that in the next five years, the military region should continue building elite, flexible, and powerful armed forces and prioritize ensuring personnel for units carrying out combat readiness missions and protection of national seas, islands, and border areas. The military region was also asked to focus on building a revolutionary, regular, elite, and increasingly modernized military force with a strong militia force.

He also encouraged Military Region 3 to continue to raise the quality of training, effectively organize exercises, and build a politically-, ideologically-, organizationally-, and ethically-strong Party Organization.
