He asked the Party Committees, administrations, provincial Vietnam Fatherland Front Committees at all levels and organizations of An Giang to focus on ensuring a safe and warm Tet festival for local residents amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

An Giang should continue mobilizing resources to care for locals during the Tet Festival, while better implementing social welfare policies and poverty reduction, especially in mountainous and ethnic minority-inhabited areas, he said.

Man also requested local authorities to give stronger support to policy beneficiary families and relatives of wounded veterans and martyrs as well as Heroic Vietnamese Mothers, and poor and COVID-19-hit households.

On behalf of Party, State and N.A. leaders, Man wished the Party Organization, administration and people of An Giang a happy Tet Festival and a successful new year.

On the occasion, he also handed over 1 billion VND from the National COVID-19 Vaccine Fund to An Giang for pandemic prevention and control activities.

The same day, Man visited the family of Nguyen Thanh Hoang, a policy beneficiary in Long Xuyen city.
