Receiving the Lao general and his entourage, Major General Huynh Chien Thang, the MR 9 Commander, briefed the delegation on the tradition, establishment, and development of the MR 9 armed forces.
Over the past years, the military region has focused on improving the quality of military training in order to raise its combat capacity, so as to meet requirements of national defense in the current context. Military units in the whole region also paid attention to building local political bases, assisting locals in eliminating hungers, reducing poverty, and building new-styled rural models, as well as actively participating in natural disaster relief and search and rescue, contributing to maintaining political stability and peaceful environment for socio-economic development.
