I highly agree on the directions, tasks and solutions in the patriotic emulation movement in the period of 2019-2024 as stated in the Report of the Central Committee to the Congress today. In order to continue to perform well the functions and tasks of the Vietnam Veterans Association in general and the emulation contents in the coming time in particular, I would like to emphasize and suggest some more issues to our congress. together consider, discuss and decide.
1. Strongly renew the content of methods to improve the quality and efficiency of activities of the Vietnam Veterans Association in order to successfully complete all assigned tasks.
As a group of people who have fought, trained and grown up in the smoke and fire of the resistance, they have made great contributions to the cause of national liberation, national construction and defense, and the Veterans’ Association. Vietnam must always be strong, typical in political, ideological and organizational terms, really a solid support of the Party, State and people. Each officer and member must have strong political bravery, do not waver before difficulties, absolutely believe in the leadership of the Party; exemplary execution and active propaganda and advocacy for the people and their families to well implement the Party’s lines and guidelines and the State’s legal policies.
The veterans continue to raise the spirit of revolutionary vigilance, proactively prevent and fight against wrong views, reactionaries and the “peaceful evolution” of the hostile forces; actively preventing and combating the manifestations of “self-development”, “self-transformation” in veterans; coordinated with social unions to mobilize people to implement the movement “All people protect national security”, contributing to solving social conflicts right from the locality and at the grassroots level, preventing war veterans from to entice and incite participation in lawsuits with large numbers of people, illegal gatherings and demonstrations.
Associations at all levels need to work closely with the Vietnam Fatherland Front levels, mass organizations to well implement the democratic regulations at the grassroots level, the Party’s regulations and regulations on example, social supervision and criticism, especially is the regulation on controlling power, fighting against running and running power, actively participating in contributing ideas to build the Party, building an integrity, effective and efficient government.
Actively participate in the implementation of good policies, protect the legitimate rights and interests of members and veterans; set examples, mobilize and encourage veterans to join veterans’ clubs and liaison boards; actively participate in social activities, emulation movements at the grassroots level.
2. Continuing to launch and implement widely emulation movements, aiming to successfully complete the political tasks of the Association.
The presiding associations at all levels should intensify the direction, renew the contents, modes and organize the emulation movement, ensure practicality and direct the emulation work to the Association’s key tasks; making the emulation movement “Exemplary Veteran” really a widespread movement, creating a motivation for each staff member, each member and family to rise to fulfill all tasks.
Associate the emulation movement of the Association’s “Exemplary Veteran” with movements and campaigns of localities and the whole country, especially the movement of the whole country to join forces in building a new countryside, the entire people unite to build building a cultural life in the residential area.
At the same time, it is necessary to regularly pay attention to encouraging members to unite to help each other develop economic, reduce poverty sustainably, improve the material and spiritual life for member families to fulfill the poverty reduction targets. that the association has proposed. Each member not only plays the role of the breadwinner of the family, but also must be an active factor in the community and society.
Pay attention to check, evaluate, summarize and promptly reward collectives and individuals who have achieved many achievements in the emulation movement and perform assigned tasks in order to encourage, motivate, encourage and create the spread of the emulation movement. Commendation must be timely, the right person, the right job, interested in doing better than the commendation of the typical advanced collectives and individuals at the grassroots, especially in mountainous, border, island and remote areas. , remote, ethnic minority areas.

Promoting the Association’s tradition and achievements which have been achieved for 30 years and the emulation movement of “Exemplary Old Warriors” in 5 years, the Party and State firmly believe that the Vietnam Veterans Association will make a breakthrough. new development, more and more steadily, achieving more great results together with efforts to emulate achievements to welcome the Party Congress at all levels and towards the XIII Congress of the Party; contribute to building the country of Vietnam more and more “dignified, bigger and more beautiful” as when Uncle Ho’s life dreamed. The Party, State and Vietnam Fatherland Front will continue to pay attention to leading, directing and supporting the Vietnam Veterans Association to better perform their functions and tasks in the new situation.
