At the working session, the corps’ commander Senior Colonel Hoang Van Sy reported on the unit’s economic-defense task performance.

Army Corps 15 welcomes the visiting delegation. 

In particular, the party committees and chains-of-command at all levels of the corps have regularly embraced resolutions and directives issued by the Party, State, Central Military Commission, and MND.

The corps has comprehensively carried out its defense-economic duties, built a politically-, ideologically-, and organizationally-strong unit, set up residential areas, and helped the locality where it is stationed build dozens of new hamlets, communes, and districts in border areas.

In addition, it has comprehensively dealt with difficulties, gained profit in production and business, created stable jobs for over 14,000 local laborers and part-time jobs for tens of thousands of others. These have actively contributed to local hunger elimination and poverty reduction efforts.

Last year alone, apart from profit exceeding the set target, the corps well exercised COVID-19 prevention and control work, quarantined nearly 4,000 citizens at two concentrated quarantine facilities run by the corps and the Military Command of Gia Lai province. It also gave away over VND 33 billion in support of local pandemic-hit people and local agency in charge of COVID-19 combat. With its achievements in COVID-19 fight, the corps was awarded with the third-class Labor Order by the State.

Acknowledging and highly appreciating the corps’ outcomes, General Cuong emphasized the important role and position of the corps in the stationed strategic area, especially in developing economy in combination with consolidating defense and security posture in remote, mountainous, border areas.

Noting the need to continue embracing higher levels’ resolutions and directives, General Cuong urged the corps to keep performing the duties of training, combat readiness, building defense-economic areas in line with regulations.

The corps should also restructure its affiliated enterprises, settle debt, work closely with local forces to ensure local political security, social order, and safety, he added.

At the working session

Other missions that the corps has to carry out in the coming time include improving quality of party and political work, promoting leadership role of party committees and party organizations, completing regulations on cadre training, consolidating internal solidarity, and bringing into play Uncle Ho’s soldiers’ virtues, among others.
