HA NOI (VNS) — The 11th Party Central Committee has decided to convene the 12th National Party Congress in Ha Noi from January 20-28, Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong announced.
The announcement was made in his remarks at the 13th meeting of the Party Central Committee that wrapped up in Ha Noi yesterday after eight days of talks.
Reviewing work done during the eight-day meeting, the Party leader hailed documents submitted to the event as a product of the brainpower and will of the entire Party, people and armed forces.
The documents feature new orientations to developing a socialist-oriented market economy, renewing the growth model and restructuring the economy. Other goals include accelerating industrialisation and modernisation, improving the efficiency of social management, social progress and fairness, beefing up natural resources management and environmental protection and tackling climate change.
On the Party and political system, the documents set out plans to continue building a law-governed socialist State on the legislative, executive and judicial pillars, exercise democracy and reshuffle local administrations, the Viet Nam Fatherland Front and socio-political organisations, while fine-tuning legal regulations in line with the 2013 Constitution.
Stressing the need to continue realising the Resolution on Party building adopted by the 11th Party Central Committee's fourth plenum, the documents pushed efforts to crack down on corruption and wastefulness, drive back so-called "self-evolution" and "self-transformation", and the degradation in political ideology, ethics and lifestyles among some Party members.
Turning to assessing the leadership and directions of the 11th Party Central Committee, the Party chief said the Party Central Committee, Politburo and Secretariat had taken prompt and flexible approaches to curbing inflation, stabilising the macro-economy and ensuring social welfare.
Progress has been seen in education-training, healthcare, science-technology and socio-culture, he said.
Amid the complicated developments in the region and the world, the Party Central Committee, Politburo and Secretariat have adopted sound solutions to resolutely defend national independence and sovereignty, maintain socio-political stability and place the country on track to wider global integration.
He said in the spirit of self-criticism, the Party Central Committee had also pointed out existing shortcomings and weaknesses and learned from experience in order to do a better job in the future.
The Party Central Committee also discussed and unanimously approved a list of personnel for the Politburo and Secretariat (12th tenure).
Concluding his speech, the leader asked the committee to uphold its sense of responsibility and fulfill assigned tasks, contributing to the success of the 12th National Party Congress. — VNS
