 It is time to set up a club of intellectuals with the common name: "Association Intellectual Club ..." to help the Party and State quickly collect the ideas of intellectuals to conduct consultancy and judgment in a timely and accurate manner. The organization of this Club should not be strictly tight and participation in this Club is voluntary. But it is important to mobilize, gather the leading and good intellectuals, including those who are working and have retired. The person in charge must be appointed by the Club. Importantly, the club should regularly organize meetings on various subjects that are appropriate to members’ age and professional characteristics for making contributions to the development of the country. If the Club is well organized, intellectuals can understand that the Party and State need them and so they are ready to support and participate in the Club enthusiastically./.
