Speaking at a working session with VRC representatives, President Phuc, who is also VRC Honorary President, said VRC members should be the pioneers in humanitarian activities.
He urged the VRC to consolidate its operational apparatus from the central to grassroots levels, carry forward its strength, and propose policies and mechanisms to raise its operational efficiency.
The financial management must be tightened, transparent and scientific in line with legal regulations, he stressed.
The leader also asked ministries, agencies and localities to facilitate humanitarian activities launched by the association.
Regarding the organisation of the Asia-Pacific Red Cross and Red Crescent conference 2023, President Phuc requested the VRC to make thorough preparations to promote its international position and mobilise international resources for domestic humanitarian activities and projects on environment, climate change, and livelihood for the poor and other disadvantaged groups.
