HCM CITY — The Viet Nam Fatherland Front’s HCM City Chapter has vowed to strengthen national solidarity and socio-economic development as the country integrates with the world.
The commitment was made by the city’s leading officials at the closing ceremony of the city chapter’s ninth Congress in HCM City early this week.
The congress said it had appreciated the efforts made by people of all walks of life, mass organisations and different sectors for national renewal and sustainable growth over the last five years.

In the coming term (2009-2014), the front will focus on reducing the number of poor households to reach the target of having no poor households by 2014.
Hai also asked the city’s chapter to help improve the living conditions of farmers, workers and public employees to ensure that both social and economic welfare were met.
