Youth must pioneer national digital transformation: NA Chairman
The Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union (HCYU) and young people must be the pioneers in implementing the policy of promoting national digital transformation, and developing the digital economy based on science, technology and innovation, National Assembly (NA) Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue requested on March 21.
The Vietnamese Party and State always attach special importance to youth and the youth work, and place faith in the force and the Youth Union, Hue said at a meeting with the HCYU Central Committee’s Secretariat on the occasion of the 92nd anniversary of the HCYU.
Speaking highly of the theme of “Digital Transformation” that the HCYU Central Committee has selected for the Youth Month 2023, he stressed that this is an important and urgent task that can make Vietnam integrate more deeply into the general development of the world.
The NA Chairman highlighted the importance of continuing to innovate the content and mode of operation in the context of digital transformation; and carrying out tasks and solutions to promote the intelligence and strength of young people through three movements: "Volunteer Youth", "Creative Youth", and "Youth Pioneers to Defend the Fatherland".
The HCYU should implement measures to accompany and take care of adolescents in all aspects of learning, start-ups, training and developing skills in life, improving physical health and spiritual life.
The top legislator noted that developing high-quality human resources to contribute to labour restructuring and increasing labour productivity is currently a hot issue.
As youths are an important part of Vietnam's workforce, it is necessary to intensify support for them to have stable jobs, in accordance with actual requirements and capacity, emphasised Hue.
He proposed the Government focus on directing the Ministry of Home Affairs, relevant ministries, sectors and authorities at all levels to closely coordinate with the HCYU Central Committee to well implement the 2020 Youth Law and the Vietnamese Youth Development Strategy in the 2021-2030 period.
Regarding the ninth Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) Forum of Young Parliamentarians to be hosted by Vietnam in September, the NA Chairman stated that hosting this important forum shows the deep concern of the Party, State and NA leaders about Vietnamese youth, and helps strengthen the country’s cooperation with important partners, especially young parliamentarians and leaders of other countries.
Appreciating the preparations for this event, Hue affirmed that this will be a good opportunity to promote the image of Vietnamese youth, the related movements in particular and the country and people of Vietnam in general to international friends.
