Winners of national, world skills competitions honored

The Ministry of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs honored winners of national and world skills competitions at a ceremony in Hanoi Sunday night.

Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam conferred the Labor Order, third class, on Nguyen Ba Phuoc, bronze medalist at the 44th World Skills Competition held last October in the United Arab Emirates. Mr. Dam also presented the Prime Minister's Certificate of Merit to 5 others, who won excellent skills certificates at the world competition.

In this year's national competition this week, 63 competitors won first prizes, 15 won second prizes, and 71 won third prizes. They will compete in the ASEAN Skills Competition in Thailand in August and the World Skills Competition in Russia next year.

"This competition was very useful to me. My passion is hairdressing. I learned a lot from the competition and want to introduce Vietnam's hair designs to the world. I will do my best at the ASEAN and world skills competitions," said first prize winner Nguyen Tu Anh of the Hanoi Vocational College of High Technology.
