Sending his affection and best wishes to the children, the Party and State leader said he is happy to see the children study hard and actively join in social activities, with many of them winning prizes at international and national competitions, thus bringing fame to the country and fostering hope and trust in young generations who are future owners of the country.
“This year, Vietnam and other countries in the world mark the 30 years of the UN Convention on the Right of the Child, and the Party, State, schools, families and society have always cared for and created the best conditions for children to grow up in a safe and healthy environment, as well as have all their rights ensured,” the Party leader and President wrote in the letter.
He expressed his wish that the children continue to follow the five teachings of President Ho Chi Minh, respect grandparents and parents and teachers, help those in disadvantaged circumstances and study well in order to contribute to building the country when growing up.
The leader also wished all children a joyful and meaningful Mid-Autumn festival.
