    Background: The Nam Dinh Textile Complex, the largest in North Vietnam, is equipped with modern machines.

    When the French capitalists fled in 1954, they took away all the important machineries in an attempt to paralyse the mill for good.

    Guided by the policy of self-reliance, following liberation the Vietnamese workers have worked arduously and have given the complex new look.

    The workers are energetically responding to President Ho Chi-Minh's call of 'One person doing the work of two.' Model worker Nguyen Thi Thac is not only efficient but knows all the requirements of good textile products as well.Film shows her sharing her advance experience with fellow workers.

    Another model worker, Nguyen Thi Hieu, is in charge of 22 power looms, and like Nguyen Thi Thac, is also accredited with good quality products.She has earned the honour of model worker for six years in succession.

    The concerted effort of Nam Dinh's workers has resulted in an annual output nearly 4 times the highest figure during the French colonialist rule.

    Nam Dinh Textile Complex has a well-run welfare service.The sanitorium run by the complex offers excellent medical attention and a place for convalescence.

    It also has nurseries and a kindergarten where the children are very well locked after, and indeed, are growing up healthy and strong.
