Party Central Committee’s Secretariat to review the organisation of the Lunar
New Year (Tet) holiday.
According to a report presented at the

cities, including remote villages and border guard posts. They also presented
gifts to people with disadvantages, the workers not returning to their homelands
during the country’s biggest traditional festival, frontliners in the COVID-19
fight, and persons on duty on this occasion.
All-level authorities and sectors
organised celebrations of Tet and the Party’s founding anniversary (February 3)
while firmly safeguarding sovereignty, territory, security, and social order
and safety. Besides, most of the localities have made plans to launch the tree
planting festival, an annual activity held every spring.
Party General Secretary Trong
said people nationwide enjoyed a merry Tet, applauding all-level Party
committees and administrations’ serious implementation of the Secretariat’s and
the Prime Minister’s directives on the holiday organisation.
At the meeting, the
Secretariat requested that agencies and units immediately pay attention to
performing political tasks, swiftly bring activities back to normal, ensure
public services meet people’s demand well, remove obstacles to production and
business, and provide timely support for people and enterprises.
In addition, Party committees
and administrations were told to press on with COVID-19 prevention and control,
with a focus on the Government’s Resolution No. 128/NQ-CP, issued last
October, on temporary regulations on safe and flexible adaptation to and effective
control of the pandemic.
They also need to prepare for
safe school reopening, increase safeguarding political security and social
order and safety, and step up the crime combat, according to the Secretariat.
