Giving opinions at the meeting, officials said it is necessary to build detailed organising plans for the events, step up the restoration of relic sites associated with the events, increase communication activities, and launch emulation movements to celebrate big anniversaries of the province and the country.

Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Duong Xuan Huyen asked departments, agencies and sectors to boost communications about major local and national anniversaries in 2020. They need to organise activities in a solemn but practical and effective manner and pay attention to mobilising private funding for the work.

He also told the 11 district-level localities to ensure successful firework displays and celebratory programmes on the Lunar New Year’s Eve. Additionally, environmental hygiene, security and order must be kept, while accommodation establishments for visitors also need to be ready for festivals next year.

The official also tasked the Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism with submitting organisation proposals to the provincial People’s Committee and working with the district-level administrations to make detailed organising plans for the events./.
