This is considered an important content to create a favorable environment to foster the personality qualities and morale of officials and soldiers. Recognizing that, during the past time, the units have strictly maintained the regimes of training, combat readiness, patrol, and maritime law enforcement. The activities of combat readiness guard, duty, reporting regulations, and modes of day, week, and month have also been strictly maintained to create a sense of self-consciousness for the soldiers in learning, practicing, and performing tasks.

Emulation activities of the Region have been maintained on a regular basis, becoming a momentum for collectives and individuals to fulfill their tasks. Particularly, a breakthrough has been made to implementing the movement entitled "Four-good, four-no, and four-prevention" in accordance with Directive No.202/CT-BTL issued by the Coast Guard Commander. Performance assessment and commendation have been conducted in an accurate manner, creating an excited spirit and sense of self-motivation in learning and training of the soldiers. Promotion, salary increase,  appointment, commendation, and disciplining have been carried out  in a serious, democratic, equal and transparent manner by the Regional Party Committee and the Party committees at all levels.
