Fourth VAVA national congress wraps up
The fourth national congress of the Vietnamese Association of Victims of Agent Orange/Dioxin from 2018 until 2023 concluded on Wednesday in Hanoi.
The 2-day event aimed to review the implementation of a previous congress resolution and the 15-year development since the Association was established as well as the election of a new executive board.
Vietnam Fatherland Front President Tran Thanh Man praised the Association's achievements and advanced missions for the new tenure.
Mr. Man asked the association at all levels to continue to implement the Party Central Committee Secretariat's directive and the government's national plan of action on overcoming the aftermath of Agent Orange/Dioxin sprayed by US troops during the Vietnam War.
The VFF President called for increasing communications to help people inside and outside the country better understand AO consequences in Vietnam and the local government's efforts to surmount the chemical aftermath.
97 members were elected to the executive board for the 2018-2023 term. Senior Lieutenant General Nguyen Van Rinh was re-elected as the Association's President.
