Speaking after the ceremony, he said that the new position is both a great honour and a heavy responsibility, and pledged to work hard to fulfill the promises he had made.

Noting that although Vietnam has reaped great achievements but is still facing many challenges, including the unpredictable developments in the world situation and the heavy workload inside the country, especially the preparations for the 13th Party Congress, he expressed his hope for broad support from leaders and former leaders of the Party, State, the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF), NA deputies, voters and people, as well as coordination from the NA, Government and VFF agencies, socio-political organisations, judicial bodies, and localities.

On behalf of the Party, State, NA, Government and the VFF, NA Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, Vice President Dang Thi Ngoc Thinh, and President of the VFF Central Committee Tran Thanh Man presented flowers to the new President.
