At the 2023 Great National Solidarity Festival in Moi hamlet, Lac Son district’s Thuong Coc commune, Bui Van Binh’s family was among the four exemplary cultural families who were honoured for their contributions. In addition to adhering to the Party's policies and state laws, participating in production and business ventures, and building a warm and happy family environment, Binh has played an active role as the head of the front committee in his residential unit.

In their spacious two-storey house, Binh's wife Bui Thi Diem said their home was a fruit of the couple’s labour. 

Both of them are quite busy with their professional work, social activities, and business ventures. Binh shared: "Our philosophy is to take the family as a cornerstone and a motivation to strive forward. Whatever responsibility we undertake, we are sure to fulfill it well." 

Currently, Binh manages a wild boar farming facility, selling 180-200 boarlets and 20-30 meat pigs annually. His family also owns a red pomelo orchard with nearly 100 trees that are in the commercial fruition phase. 

In 2023, the hamlet was selected to develop a "national flag pathway” initiative. As the head of the local front committee, Binh visited each household to raise awareness and mobilise funds for the hanging of the national flag on significant national holidays, helping the model receive widespread support and participation from the community. During the complex developments of the COVID-19 pandemic from 2019 to 2021, he engaged in calling on residents to strictly implement prevention measures, contribute money, rice, and cook meals for those quarantined within the area. 

In recent years, actively implementing a campaign titled "All people unite to build new rural areas and civilised urban areas", Binh actively mobilises households to keep village roads, alleys, and family gardens clean, to conscientiously collect and sort household waste to reduce environmental pollution, and to wear helmets and avoid drink driving, ensuring security and order in the area. 

Bui Van Hoang, Chairman of the Thuong Coc Fatherland Front Committee, evaluated that Binh presents an example of a successful business, a harmonious lifestyle and a spirit of mutual assistance aiding everyone in need.
