General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong visited and extended Lunar New Year (Tet)
greetings to the Party organisation, administration, and people of northern Bac
Ninh province on January 24.
Reporting on the province's achievements,
Secretary of the provincial Party
Committee Dao Hong Lan said from a wholly agricultural locality with underdeveloped
infrastructure, Bac Ninh has established itself as a modernity-oriented
industrialised province that is among the leading localities nationwide in
terms of many socio-economic indexes.
It is also one of the best performers
in foreign investment attraction, she said, noting that 38 countries and territories
have come to invest 21.2 billion USD in Bac Ninh.
In particular, the province has taken
strong and flexible moves in response to the COVID-19 pandemic last year so as
to swiftly revitalise production and business activities and adapt to the new
normal, Lan added.
Congratulating Bac Ninh on its substantial efforts and achievements, General
Secretary Trong asked the province to continue upholding its glorious
traditions so as to build an increasingly clean and strong Party organisation
and political system and become an exemplary Party organisation of the entire

He underlined that economic
development must be promoted in tandem with cultural and social development,
especially the maintenance of local cultural values as well as the country’s
advanced culture deeply imbued with the national identity
At present, all-level Party committees, authorities, and organisations in Bac
Ninh need to work to ensure a merry Tet for all residents, including revolution
contributors, disadvantaged and low-income households, and workers, he added.
The leader expressed his belief that
the province’s Party organisation, administration, and people will stay united
to step up reforms while achieving and surpassing the targets set at the 20th provincial Party Congress in order to secure sustainable development.
On this occasion, the Party chief and senior officials offered incense at Do Temple, a special
national relic site dedicated to eight kings of the Ly Dynasty (1010 - 1225),
and met with artisans of the Quan ho Bac Ninh folk songs - part of the
representative list of the intangible cultural heritage of humanity./.
