The profound humanistic significance of the policy towards the poor has been turned into concrete actions implemented by the agencies at all levels, Mr. Phuc added.

He also noted that the government has mobilized all enterprises, organizations and individuals both in the country and abroad to continue to join hands with the Party, State and the VFF to further contributing to the poverty reduction and ensuring the social welfare.
