The President praised the efforts of the locality in providing rice and assistance for disadvantaged residents during the year.
He was speaking at a working session with the local Party Committee, authorities, and armed forces during a tour to the locality for Tet.
Sang praised the endeavour of local armed forces in cultivating political awareness for soldiers and officers and contributing to new-style rural area development.
He said that together with the Party and State, the armed forces made remarkable contributions to realising the country's socio-economic development goals.
Armed forces in Nghe An should remain prepared to handle social disorders, and promote external defence relations, he said.
