Many Party officials, Party members, civil servants, public employees, and ordinary people have become role models in the movement to improve the performance of their duties and daily life.
Many community models have been introduced: "Community Monitoring Team", "Medical Advisory Group" for the prevention and control of the Covid-19 epidemic, "Trade Union aid package ", "Gratitude kitchen", "Gratitude bus - companion to overcome the pandemic", “0 VND stall- sharing love", "Youth speaker", "Connecting hearts", "30 minutes to remember and take action”, “Community digital technology team", and "Effective economic cooperation model ".
In the past three years, the movement to study and follow Ho Chi Minh's thought, morality and lifestyle has been implemented and integrated in all trade unions activities.
The Vietnam General Confederation of Labor and trade unions at all levels have launched multiple emulation movements to build a strong, modern working class. The programs "Welfare for trade union members and workers", "New Year's reunion", "Worker's Month", and "Union Shelter" have become practical activities bearing the hallmarks of the Trade Union organizations. Key cadres of trade unions at all levels have been encouraged to become role models in these movements.
During 2021 and 2022, trade unions at all levels mobilized hundreds of thousands of organizations and individuals to register to study and follow President Ho Chi Minh’s moral example. More than 966,000 good deeds and 3,000 good models have been implemented.
Ms. Hoang Thi Nhu Thanh, Head of Dong Ba Market Management Board, in Hue city, said: 'I learned from Uncle Ho the way to understand the people, respect the people, and be close to the people. I take myself as an example for traders to follow. At meetings with them, I always share thoughts and ways of doing things and they discuss and share with me their sincere suggestions. I personally consider traders the focus in communications to mobilize them to engage in movements and comply with the guidelines and policies of the city and the province.'
It’s important to create a stronger change from "studying" to "following" President Ho Chi Minh’s moral example and make it a regular task and a great motivation and strength to build a modern, strong working class, a strong trade union, and to create new strength in national construction and development.
Nguyen Trong Nghia, Head of the Party Central Committee’s Communication and Education Commission, said: 'We must further replicate and strengthen good, effective models in studying and following Uncle Ho, and make the movement a regular task and a more practical and regular action for the legitimate interests of the trade union members.'
Ho Thi Cam Dao, Deputy Secretary of the Provincial Party Committee and Chairperson of the People’s Council of Soc Trang province, said: 'We have focused on building good models in following President Ho Chi Minh’s moral example, honored them and replicated them throughout the province. We have constantly reformed the contents, methods and ways to promote the movement of studying and following Ho Chi Minh's thought, morality and lifestyle among Party cadres, Party members, trade union members, and the public, particularly among the younger generation.'
During Vietnam’s national development and international integration, President Ho Chi Minh's thought, morality and lifestyle is an invaluable spiritual asset lighting the way for Vietnam’s national struggle for independence and freedom and socialism building. It’s also a solid spiritual foundation to sustain Vietnamese culture and people toward sustainable development and the goal of a rich people, a strong country, democracy, justice and civilization.
