Over the past years, the implementation of policies for revolutionary contributors has always received much attention from the Party and State. So far, the country has identified over 9 million revolutionary contributors, including nearly 1.2 million martyrs, over 127,000 Vietnamese heroic mothers, nearly 800,000 wounded soldiers and those enjoying policies of wounded soldiers.

According to MOLISA Minister Dao Ngoc Dung, a majority of revolutionary contributors and their relatives have fully and promptly enjoyed preferential policies. The number of revolutionary contributors recognized and receiving policies is increasing, while the regular assistance has been adjusted.

Regarding remaining profiles requesting recognition as revolutionary contributors, Minister Dung said that MOLISA would focus on addressing the profiles by the end of 2017.

During a press conference marking the 70th anniversary of the Day for Wounded Soldiers and Martyrs (July 27th), Minister Dung said that policies caring for revolutionary contributors who go abroad for permanent residence would be issued in the near future.

He added that the ministry would propose policies for the third generation born infected by toxic chemicals from their grandparents, exposed while joining revolutionary activities.
