Trần Quốc Vượng, Politburo member and permanent member of the Party Central Committee’s Secretariat, presented a report reviewing the 12th-tenure committee’s leadership.
According to the report, amidst rapid and complex developments of the regional and global situation over the past term, the committee has led the entire Party, people and army to complete targets and tasks set by the previous Party Congress.
The report highlighted the issuance of many strategic resolutions on socio-economic development, notably one on guidelines and solutions facilitating international integration.
The committee has also adopted resolutions, regulations and decisions on Party and political system building, particularly the one adopted at the fourth plenum on intensifying Party building and rectification, pointing out specific phenomena of degradation, "self-evolution" and "self-transformation".
Efforts have been made to restructure the state budget, improve the efficiency of the management, exploitation and utilisation of economic resources, and spur industry, tourism and energy development.
In the face of natural disasters and diseases, especially the COVID-19, the Politburo and Secretariat have worked out specific policies and solutions to promote the power of the entire political system, people and army in the fight, while maintaining economic growth.
The achievements have contributed to raising trust in the Party and the State from the public, as well as the prestige of Việt Nam in the international arena.
