NAM ĐỊNH — Vice President Đặng Thị Ngọc Thịnh extended her best wishes to Catholic dignitaries and followers of the Bùi Chu Diocese in Xuân Trường District during a trip to the northern province of Nam Định on Monday.

She used the occasion to inform Bishop of Bùi Chu Diocese Vũ Đình Hiệu about the country’s socio-economic achievements in the past year, with a stable macro-economy, economic growth reaching 7 per cent and inflation curbed under 3 per cent.

Hailing Nam Định as a leading province in the country for developing new style rural areas and education and training, Vice President Thịnh said Catholic followers had made great contributions to the results.

She expressed her hope that with their position and role, local priests and dignitaries would continue encouraging local Catholic followers to abide by Party policies and State laws, contributing to strengthening national solidarity and local socio-economic development.

Bishop Hiệu thanked leaders from the Party, State, Việt Nam Fatherland Front, socio-political organisations and local authorities for facilitating the Catholic community’s religious activities, while highlighting their contributions to local development.

Nam Định Province is home to nearly 600 churches, 140 parishes and a community of more than 470,000 Catholics, accounting for over 20 per cent of the province’s population. — VNS
