Writing about the late State leader, Thanh said that President Quang was born in a poor area along the coast of Kim Son district of Ninh Binh province.
With a large family and the early death of his father, he had a tough childhood. However, in the memory of his teachers and friends from his hometown, he was a smart boy with great energy, enabling him to overcome difficulties and achieve excellent academic performance.
Upon leaving his hometown, he continued his studious efforts to become the Minister of Public Security.
As the perfect picture of a tolerant, experienced, and understanding leader, he was held in the minds of officials and soldiers for many generations, said Thanh.
Serving as the State President of Vietnam, President Quang vowed to exert his best efforts to serve the nation and its people.
He left a strong impression on other heads of state and foreign friends as a composed, spirited, and knowledgeable leader when chairing the APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting 2017.
Thanh noted that in any position, the leader showed his warm sentiments to his hometown in Ninh Binh. The late President had once stated that the sentiments of the people of the whole country, and soldiers and people of Ninh Binh province in particular, were a great motivation for him to work hard and fulfil his assigned tasks.
The sincere heart of the late President to his motherland was shown through his wish to further develop the province and the nation as a whole, wrote Thanh.
“As the Minister of Public Security and as the State President, he provided many helpful ideas of macroscopic significance, contributing to the growth, social security, and poverty reduction for the province,” she wrote.
During his trips to his hometown and many other localities nationwide, the late President paid close attention to policy beneficiaries, the elderly, and children.
As part of efforts to nurture and encourage talents and build a learning society in Ninh Binh, he founded the Dinh Bo Linh fund to encourage educational activities and support local talents. Every year, despite his busy schedule, he spent time directly presenting awards to local students, she recalled.
In conclusion, Thanh affirmed that the Party organisation, soldiers, and people of Ninh Binh are determined to make the locality more prosperous and civilised to meet the trust and expectations of the late President and the aspirations of local people.
“Images of the late President and his devotion will always be kept in the minds of Party members, soldiers, and people of Ninh Binh,” Thanh wrote.VNA
