Ho Chi Minh City's Communist Youth League has received the TAYO ASEAN award from the ASEAN Youth Cooperation Committee for its outstanding achievements in volunteer activities from 1996-2008.
The TAYO ASEAN (Ten Accomplished Youth Organizations in the ASEAN) award has been presented to the league at a ceremony in the Philippines.
The award was handed out in Princesa City during the 14th annual conference on preservation of the environment along with a signing ceremony outlining an environmental protection agreement between youth organizations in the region.
Established in 2006, the TAYO ASEAN award aims to honor outstanding achievements and significant contributions of youth organizations in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).
The various programs, projects and activities undertaken by the youth organizations are in turn hoped to be replicated by the recipient countries.
