In the message, he warmly greeted Vietnamese families in the country and abroad, affirming that Vietnam Family Day is to honour family values, and for Vietnamese expatriates to remember their home country and loved ones at home.
Families are a key part of society and a firm foundation of the nation’s strength from the past to the present, he stated. The Party, State and people always respect and are grateful to those who have contributed to and sacrificed for the Fatherland, Phuc said.
He said amid the COVID-19 pandemic, families have been a source of encouragement for frontline military and medical personnel as well as the donors and contributors to the nation’s related prevention and control work.
The President took the occasion to commend all sectors, localities, organisations and individuals across the country, and overseas Vietnamese communities for their contributions to building happy, progressive, and sustainable Vietnamese families.
He also requested Party committees and authorities at levels and localities effectively implement policies of the Party and State on family development, particularly in nurturing the younger generation, caring for the elderly and beneficiaries of social welfare, curbing domestic violence and inequality, and protecting vulnerable groups in society.
