The representative of the program’s Organization Board said: "The organization of this program creates solidarity and serves as a salutary playground for youth union members and members of associations. At the same time, it contributes to the variety of cultural and tourism activities in the city during Tet."

The program also gives Tet gifts to 54 families of youth union and trade union members who are poor, near-poor households and children in difficult circumstances in the city.
