Mr Hung, who is also head of the national steering committee for the celebration of the 1,000th anniversary of Thang Long-Hanoi, made the statement at a meeting in Hanoi on October 28 to implement the Prime Minister’s decree on approving the draft project on activities to celebrate the event.

This brings a great source of pride for not only Hanoians but also all people across the country in boosting socio-economic development and honouring the struggle for national independence over the past 1,000 historic years.

He called for closer cooperation among ministries, agencies and provincial and municipal authorities in organising cultural events and completing key construction projects in preparation for the anniversary.

The capital city will focus on four major tasks – promoting the dissemination of information about Thang Long-Hanoi culture and the capital’s beauty to international friends, developing a cultural and civilised city, and cooperating with ministries, agencies and provincial authorities to carry out activities to celebrate the anniversary.

The city is also striving to complete key projects and prepare a detailed plan on launching a 10-day cultural and sport event to mark the occasion, Mr Nghi added.
