Addressing the conference, Tran Dang Ninh, Deputy Secretary of the provincial Party Committee and Chairman of the provincial People’s Council, lauded the efforts by prestigious persons, village patriarchs and religious dignitaries in Hoa Binh. He affirmed that with their voices and wholehearted devotion, they have connected local communities, upheld the national strength and disseminated the Party and State’s policies to local people.

Ninh stressed that as Hoa Binh province is going to implement a number of socio-economic development plans and community-based livelihoods programmes in ethnic minority-inhabited areas, the prestigious persons and village patriarchs and village heads should continue encouraging local residents to support these programmes and projects.

 He also voiced his hope that they will play an important role in promoting a civilized lifestyle in local communities and fighting social crimes and old-fashioned customs, especially child and consanguineous marriages.

On this occasion, the official also asked authorities at all levels and sectors to pay more attention to policies targeting ethnic minority-inhabited areas and the implementation of economic development programmes in those areas to improve living conditions of local residents.
