The event aimed to honour the great contributions of the late leader to the revolutionary cause of the Party as well as the building of great national unity bloc.

Ton Duc Thang was born on August 20, 1888 into a peasant family in the Mekong Delta province of An Giang. He was one of the first leaders of the Vietnamese workers’ movement in the early 20th century.

During his life, he always held the Party’s ideology in high regard and overcame difficulties despite his detainment in prison and the atrocities of war in order to achieve national liberation.

Speaking at the get-together, President of the VFF Central Committee Tran Thanh Man affirmed that President Ton Duc Thang was a loyal communist who devoted all his life to the revolution and the nation.

“He was an eminent leader of the Party, State and the VFF and an example for us and next generations to follow,” Man stressed.

From President Thang’s example, the VFF committees at all levels will continue stepping up emulation movements in study and production, as well as regularly take care of policy beneficiary families, poor households and those affected by natural disasters.

They will also actively engage in combating corruption and wastefulness, building the pure and strong Party and administration, increasing social consensus, and joining Party and State efforts to fulfill socio-economic development targets and ensure social security, the VFF leader said.
