At the meeting, the standing committees of the Central Military Commission of the Communist Party of Vietnam and the HCMC Party Committee worked together to estimate their coordination results in defense instruction in line with socioeconomic development in the city.
Minister of Defense General Ngo Xuan Lich and HCMC Party Committee secretary Nguyen Thien Nhan chaired the conference.
The two sides heightened the policy of closely combining socioeconomic development with intensifying national defense and security in every plan and project. They also agreed with an investment mechanism from defense budget and city budget for military units in the city.
They will work together to rearrange some posts of military units in the city.
In the up coming time, city leaders will arrange land, funds and technology for clean vegetable farming to serve military forces stationed in HCMC and the southern region.
