HA NOI (VNS) — The 11th Party Central Committee wrapped up its 14th meeting in Ha Noi yesterday.

Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong said the three-day event took place in a serious and democratic manner, as delegates had a high level of responsibility and duty to the country.

Delegates reached a consensus on the signing and ratification of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Agreement in accordance with domestic laws on international treaties.

They agreed that the opportunities stemming from the TPP were enormous, though challenges lay ahead, he said.

"With the country's experience from 30 years of Doi moi (reform) and global economic integration – along with the creativity, efforts and united resolve of the whole Party, people, army and business community – we are confident we can overcome any challenges, and seize opportunities afforded by the TPP agreement for rapid and sustainable development," he said.

The Party Central Committee entrusted a committee to direct the TPP negotiation delegation in continuing to work with other TPP members to finalise necessary procedures, so the trade pact could be formally signed in early February.

Meanwhile, the Political Bureau is responsible for directing preparations to submit the agreement to the National Assembly for ratification according to law. It will also draft the Party Central Committee's resolution on effective international integration, given the country's engagement in new-generation free trade agreements – including the TPP.

The Politburo is set to instruct the Government to build a programme of action to implement the TPP.

Regarding personnel work, the Party chief said the committee had discussed the issue in a democratic and straightforward manner, and voted to adopt the proposed additional nomination of several members of the 11th Party Central Committee for re-election in the 12th tenure as "special" cases, along with nominations of Politburo members and Party Central Committee Secretariat for re-election in the 12th tenure as "special" cases.

The committee also passed a list of nominations for key leadership positions in the Party and the State in the 12th tenure.

The committee reached strong consensus on the Political Bureau's proposal on nomination lists of the Presidium, the Secretariat, and the Committee for Appraising Delegates of the 12th National Party Congress.

The Party Central Committee also passed a resolution for its 14th meeting.— VNS
