Addressing the ongoing 10th National Patriotic Emulation Congress held in Hanoi, the top leader said that the success in the national defense and construction over the past 70 years has proved the correctness and creativeness of the Ho Chi Minh ideology and the Party’s orientations on patriotic emulation.

Throughout the history of national construction and development, under leadership of the Party, the patriotic emulation movement has been developing strongly, intensively and extensively, he said.

The movement has encouraged people across the nation to show patriotism by overcoming difficulties and challenges to make great achievements of historical significance in the renewal cause as well as national construction and defense, said the leader.

Reviewing the important and comprehensive attainments of the country over the years, he stressed that the nation has never seen the realm, strength, international position and prestige as it is today.

He also spoke highly of the outcomes of the patriotic emulation movement and awarding activities over the past five years.

On the other hand, he also pointed out a number of shortcomings in the field, noting that many effective models have yet to be discovered, developed and multiplied.

The leader expressed his hope that in the future, the movement will show stronger performance in encouraging ministries, sectors, agencies, localities and people nationwide to weather difficulties and challenges, optimizing opportunities brought by the Fourth Industrial Revolution to continue boosting the growth of the nation and completing all targets and tasks set in the socio-economic development plan for the 2021-2025 period.

He underscored that the movements should give practical and detail goals in association with the implementation of political and socio-economic development missions of each ministry, sector, agency and locality.
