HÀ NỘI — Party General Secretary and State President Nguyễn Phú Trọng urged report editors to listen to and incorporate feedback and contributions from scientists, academia, and all classes of people into documents for the upcoming 13th National Party Congress in 2021.
Việt Nam’s top leader made the remark as he chaired over a Politburo meeting to receive feedback from local Party committees, National Assembly delegates, representatives of the Việt Nam Fatherland Front, socio-economic organisations, Government officials, Party members and the public at large; and to discuss the finalisation of documents submitted to the 14th Plenum of the Party Central Committee, 12th tenure, before next year’s congress.
Important documents for the congress, which will elect top leaders and set the agenda for the country in the next decade, include the political report – the key item, socio-economic review of the 2011-20 period and development strategy for 2021-30 period, and synthesis report on Party building and implementation of Party’s regulations.
The drafts have been open for public feedback since October 20.
Heads of the editors’ teams of the reports have reported on the progress, saying that they have held several meetings and discussions to incorporate reasonable ideas into the draft reports.
The Politburo thanked veteran officials and Party members, representatives from all socio-economic organisations, and all classes of people who have taken the time to contribute to the reports.
The majority of comments said the draft documents and reports were carefully, scientifically, and prudently made, reflecting the actual situation along with achieved results, remaining limitations, shortcomings and weaknesses as well as the causes and lessons learned. The documents also include forecasts on the situation of Việt Nam and the world in the future, identifying goals, tasks and solutions for the country’s development.
Many have suggested amendments to the language and text of the reports, asked for clearer analyses of achieved results and remaining weaknesses, as well as reviewed for consistency between different reports in terms of situation forecasts and analyses.
The Politburo and the Secretariat agreed the draft documents submitted to this Congress have demonstrated the principle of combining theory and practice, persistence and innovation, and inheritance and innovation – all based on maximising democratic practices and listening to feedback and comments from the public, the wisdom and creativity of the entire Party, the entire people and the entire army.
“The subcommittees and the editors must carefully deliberate the feedback with the highest degree of accuracy and attention, seeing it as the top political duty,” Trọng said.
The reports presented during the Congress must be accurate, concise, and easily understandable, the Party chief, adding that the documents must reflect the common voice, the national unity, and the Party’s leadership role.
The reports will make up a significant part of the success of the Congress which will usher the country into a new development era, Trọng said at the conclusion of the meeting. — VNS
