He highly appreciated significant and comprehensive achievements made by the local Party Committee, authorities, people and army over the past two decades.
He asked the province to join hands with other localities across the country to realize the national socio-economic development tasks in 2017 while exerting maximum effort to establish itself as a centrally-run city and one of the wealthiest localities in the following decades.
He requested the province not to be content with its achievements but to continue working out more initiatives and solutions to raise Bac Ninh into one of the leading electronics factory industrial areas of the region.
He stressed the importance of safeguarding traditional historical and cultural values and protecting the environment during the integration and development process.
It is also necessary to enhance Party building, enhance the management of local authorities as well as promote the role of the provincial Fatherland Front Committee and social organisations, he added.
On the occasion, he presented the Independence Order (first class) to the Party Organisation, government and people of Bac Ninh.
