HÀ NỘI — A socio-economic development strategy for the next 10 years was presented by Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc on Sunday. He was speaking at a national online conference, held in Hà Nội to popularise the Resolution adopted at the 13th National Party Congress.
The PM evaluated the implementation of the previous development strategy during 2011-20, and summarised key points of the new one, which will be carried out from now until 2030. He highlighted three main factors of the new strategy, which are igniting the people’s nation-building aspirations, taking advantage of science and technology advancements, and developing Việt Nam into a modern industrial country with high average income by 2030.
“These are big goals and responsibilities. If we don’t aim for them our country will lag behind,” PM Phúc said. “If we have the right directions and feasible solutions, they will be achievable.”
The new strategy aims to ensure the average income per person will be US$7,500 a year by 2030, and $18,000 in 2045.
Gross domestic product (GDP) is expected to grow 6.5-7 per cent a year from now until 2025.
PM Phúc also highlighted the country’s major achievements in the past decade, saying they were not the results of only one tenure of the Communist Party of Việt Nam but the accumulation of many tenures, with support from all social classes.
He also pointed out five lessons learned in the last 10 years, with the first being ensuring equilibrium between growth and stability, maintaining macroeconomic stability, and solving major economic concerns.
He stressed the importance of developing culture, society and people in line with economic growth, as well as taking education, science and technology advancement and national solidarity as the main motivation for the country’s development.
The PM added: “The people’s consensus and solidarity will maximise all resources in nation building. Not only in building the Party but also in developing the national economy, and local economies in all sectors.”
The online conference was started by the Party Central Committee’s Secretariat on Saturday.
In participation are 67 Party Committees of centrally-run cities, provinces and central agencies, and more than 7,300 committees at local levels.
Addressing the event, Võ Văn Thưởng, Politburo member and Standing member of the Party Central Committee’s Secretariat, stressed the significance of in-depth study and popularisation, and implementation of the Resolution, which should become a regular activity throughout the tenure and one of the major tasks of 2021.
He said that the proper and creative implementation of the Resolution from State officials and Party members will create consensus among the people, promoting patriotism, self-reliance and the great national solidarity strength and the desire for national development, contributing to successfully implementing the Resolution.
This will also help combat degradation in political ideology as well as signs of “self-evolution” and “self-transformation” among Party members, while protecting Party ideological foundation and fighting wrongful and hostile arguments.
Highlighting the need to roll out a strict and high-quality popularisation of the Resolution, Thưởng asked participants to clarify major contents and new policies in documents of the 13th National Party Congress, thus pointing out advantages and difficulties as well as challenges facing the national revolution in the future, while applying the policies to suit specific conditions of each locality, and successfully realising political tasks in the 2021-2025 period.
He underlined that it is necessary to have quick replies to questions from officials, Party members and people regarding the contents of the Resolution, orienting public opinion and creating consensus in society.
Meanwhile, it is crucial to soon apply the Resolution into life, he stated, asking Party Committees and organisations to soon build their action plans to specify the Resolution.
He also asked for the strengthening of inspection and supervision as well as evaluation of activities to popularise the document, as well as the building of action plans to implement it in each locality and agency.
Participants at the two-day event heard a number of reports on different topics related to major documents of the 13th National Party Congress, focusing on core issues, new features and mindset shown in the documents, affirming achievements and lessons drawn from the 35 years of national reform, especially five years of implementing the Resolution of the 12th National Party Congress. — VNS
