In reality, many emulation drives and creative activities have been held associated with big events of the nation, military, and coast guard force, contributing to motivating and encouraging the command's affiliated units and troops to try their best to well fulfill all assigned missions.

In addition to studying and following President Ho Chi Minh’s thought, morality, and lifestyle via practical activities, in combination with an emulation campaign themed “Promoting tradition, devoting talent, deserving to be Uncle Ho’s soldiers,” launched by the Central Military Commission, the “Determined-to-win” emulation over the past five years has directly contributed to more firmly building Coast Guard Region 2, meeting all task requirements in the current context, contributing to building a firm whole people’s defense posture coupled with the people’s security posture, and people heart’s posture at sea.

Reportedly, over the past time, Coast Guard Region 2 has implemented many meaningful programs to help fishermen escape poverty and stabilize their lives, contributing to boosting military-civilians ties, promoting patriotism and love for national sea and islands, thereby raising public awareness of and responsibility for the cause of construction and protection of the national sea and islands.
