The event aims to celebrate the 84th founding anniversary of the CPV and 45 years since late President Ho Chi Minh planted a banyan tree on Dong Vang hill, Vat Lai commune.

The tree, which represented the beginning of a national planting campaign, has now become a cultural relic site.

Party chief Trong said that the district Party Committee and locals have followed Ho Chi Minh’s appeal for forestation, which has been developed into an annual mass campaign.

“As the country is on a path towards industrialization and modernization, the work of tree protection and planting are crucial,” said Mr. Trong./.
