– President Nguyen Xuan Phuc met with 45 outstanding representatives
of the Business Association of Vietnamese Veterans (BAV) in Hanoi on October 14, on the occasion
of the Vietnam Entrepreneurs’ Day (October 13).
State leader spoke highly of the BAV and its members’ achievements in
production and business activities, along with their humanitarian deeds and
social responsibility as seen in their assistance for former comrades,
scholarships for children of veterans, financial support for those performing
duties at sea and on islands, donation of trillions of VND to the National Fund
for Vietnamese Children, and considerable contributions to the fight against
the BAV to enhance coordination with ministries, sectors, and localities to
advise the Veterans Association of Vietnam about creative and effective
measures for caring for and protecting legitimate interests of members.
BAV should bring into play the role of war veterans in the country’s new period
and give recommendations about national development and safeguarding to the Party and
State. Apart from improving business performance, it also needs to step up
charitable activities, particularly supporting victims of Agent Orange, poor
veterans, and those in disadvantaged areas, according to President Phuc./.
