Regarding the implementation of the Resolution of the Fourth Congress, 2018-2023 term.

In the 4th term, associations at all levels have inherited and promoted the results achieved in the 3rd term, strived to overcome difficulties, achieved the set goals, and successfully completed both tasks of helping and fighting for justice for Agent Orange victims. The Association has seen remarkable developments, affirming its role and position, becoming an increasingly prestigious and effective organization, successfully completing the tasks assigned by the Party and the State.

However, the operational quality and efficiency of some associations are still low; the consultation for party committees, authorities, Fatherland Front and related agencies is still limited; some associations failed to attract the required number of members; the implementation of the charter and working regulations has yet to be really democratic; the work of mobilizing resources in some places is still passive, lacking perseverance, and not diverse in forms; the results of mobilization are still low or not commensurate with the actual potential of the locality.
