HÀ NỘI Party General Secretary, President Nguyễn Phú Trọng chaired a meeting of key officials in Hà Nội on Tuesday.
Participants at the meeting were members of the Politburo including Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc and National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyễn Thị Kim Ngân.
The meeting heard and discussed a report on the situation and work performance in April and recommendations on issues needing attention in the time ahead by the Party Central Committee, NA, the President and the Government.
Concluding the meeting, Trọng said with many major anniversaries and big events in April and the first half of May, key officials, members of the Politburo, the Party Central Committee Secretariat and leaders of the NA and the Government had closely followed the plan to give instructions to relevant agencies, organisations and localities to implement their tasks.
He said arising issues had been handled in an efficient and timely manner, thus ensuring the smooth operation of the Party and State, as well as activities across economic, social and cultural fields, along with security-defence, external relations, Party building and anti-corruption work.
The officials at the meeting reached a consensus on the key tasks in May and the time ahead. In the immediate future, priority should be given to organising the 10th plenum of the 12th Party Central Committee and meetings of the Politburo and the Party Central Committee Secretariat; ensuring the pace and quality of the compilation of documents to be submitted to the 13th National Party Congress as well as preparations for all-level Party congresses towards the 13th National Congress; while continuing to prepare for the 7th session of the 14th National Assembly.
The Party leader and President stressed that officials should closely monitor the implementation of plans, adding that the organisation of all-level Party congresses should not interfere with regular tasks in socio-economic development, security-defence, external relations and Party building. He said the fight against corruption and negative phenomena must be continued with resolve and persistence while upholding the spirit of solidarity and unity at all-level administrations and in all sectors, and winning public consensus.
The Party chief required the Party Central Committee Office to co-ordinate with relevant agencies to arrange the working schedules of key Party and State officials, thus ensuring the smooth and efficient operation of the Party and State apparatus. VNS
