 Party General Secretary and President Nguyen Phu Trong has sent a letter to all children in Vietnam and Vietnamese children overseas, sharing the joy with them on the traditional Mid-Autumn Festival.


Extending his best wishes to the children, the top leader said he is happy to see the children study hard and adapt to new methods to stay safe in the context of the ravaging COVID-19 pandemic, with many of them winning prizes at international and national competitions, thus bringing honour to the country and fostering hope and trust in young generations who are future owners of the country.
“The Party, State, schools, families and society have always been caring for and creating the best conditions for children to grow up in a safe and healthy environment, as well as have all their rights ensured,” the leader wrote.
He expressed his wish that the children continue to follow the five teachings by President Ho Chi Minh, respect grandparents and parents and teachers, help those in disadvantaged circumstances, and study well in order to contribute to building the country when they grow up.
The leader also wished all children a joyful, safe and meaningful Mid-Autumn festival.
The Mid-Autumn Festival, celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th month on the lunar calendar, which falls on October 1 this year, is also festival for children in Vietnam. Many activities are held for children on this day, including gatherings to decorate fruit trays, lantern parades, lion dances, and gift giving.
