Quarter 2 in the district’s Ward 4 has a population that is 51.4 percent of Chinese origin. Despite still being a poor area, for five years in succession it has been honored as a “cultured residential quarter.”
“If other residential quarters too have the same solidarity as Quarter 2, HCMC will be very civilized because solidarity is the key to success,” Mr. Hai said.
Nguyen Thanh Tai, the permanent deputy chairman of the city People’s Committee, visited Quarter 3 in the same ward to celebrate the National Solidarity Festival with local residents. Other city leaders went to various places in the city for the purpose, offering gifts to poor households.
The HCMC Fatherland Front celebrated the 78th anniversary of its predecessor, the Vietnam United National Front, which fell yesterday.
