Addressing the closing session, Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong affirmed building the infrastructure to serve national industrialisation and modernisation for 2011-20 was crucial to rapid and sustainable development and improving efficiency and competitiveness.
The meeting issued a resolution on this task, emphasising the need to define stages of investment and the order of priority. Important projects would be selected for implementation, while creative mechanisms and policies were needed to mobilise all social resources, including foreign sources, for socio-economic infrastructure development. State budget funds would be reserved for essential and important projects.
By 2020, the country should fundamentally solve the current obstacles and overloads and step by step form a synchronous socio-economic infrastructure system, ensuring rapid, sustainable growth and increasing international integration.
The committee pointed out development orientations for 10 main infrastructure areas with a focus on transport, energy, urban development, irrigation and climate change response.
On the issue of Party-building, the committee reached a consensus on the need to issue the Central Committee's Resolution on this urgent task, focusing on promptly preventing and stamping out degradation of political ideology, ethics and lifestyle of a number of Party members and cadres, especially leading and managerial officials at all levels.
The meeting emphasised the need to develop a contingent of leading officials and managers, particularly at the central level, and clearly define the scope of authority and individual responsibility of the heads of Party committees and administrative organisations, as well as their relationship with the respective Party committee, management and staff.
It was necessary to focus on guiding the fight against corruption, wastefulness, bureaucracy and these tasks must be combined with the State management responsibility of each ministry, department, locality, agency and unit, the committee said.
The heads of Party committees at all levels and ministries, departments, services, agencies and units must take responsibility for any corruption and wastefulness cases in their units, while Party and State inspection agencies should carry out timely investigations, responding better to complaints and denunciations, particularly those related to cases attracting public attention.
Trong requested that members of the Party Central Committee, the Political Bureau and the Secretariat pioneer in performing, leading and instructing the implementation of the meeting's resolutions. — VNS
