HÀ NỘI — The 10th plenum of the 12th Central Committee of the Communist Party of Việt Nam wrapped up in Hà Nội on Saturday after nearly three days.
In his closing speech, Party General Secretary, President Nguyễn Phú Trọng said the meeting was a success as it touched upon various topics, focusing on preparations for all-level Party congresses towards the 13th National Party Congress.
Most of the committee’s members agreed with the proposals presented by the Politburo, he said, adding that all members consented to adopt the meeting’s resolution.
The leader highlighted new points from the meeting, from preparations to implementation, and lauded sub-committees for their efforts to collect opinions from the Party Central Committee’s members and representatives of localities and agencies.
With thorough preparations and a high sense of responsibility, the committee reached high consensus on orientations and targets, he said.
He stressed the need to promptly draft documents to be submitted to the 11th meeting of the Party Central Committee slated for later this year.
The leader called for greater efforts in implementing the Politburo’s directives on organising all-level Party congresses towards the 13th National Party Congress, and realising programmes and plans set for 2019-20, aiming to reach the Resolution adopted at the 12th National Party Congress.
Earlier, Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc presented a report including opinions of members of the Party Central Committee on the draft political report; the draft report on the 10-year implementation of the 2011 Platform; one on the implementations of the socio-economic development strategy for the 2011-20 period; building the socio-economic development strategy for 2021-30; a report on the socio-economic situation between 2016 and 2020; and the socio-economic development plan for 2021-25 period, along with a draft report on Party building and the execution of Party statutes.
Trần Quốc Vượng, Politburo member and permanent member of the Party Central Committee’s Secretariat, presented the draft resolution to the meeting.
The committee emphasised that political, socio-economic and other thematic reports must reflect efforts made by the entire Party, people and army in the new development period, which offered both opportunities and challenges.
Documents to be submitted to the 13th National Party Congress needed to focus on building a pure, strong Party and political system, promoting great national unity and addressing major relations like those between reform, stability and development, and between economic and political reform, the committee said.
The committee noted that preparations for all-level Party congresses should go in tandem with the fulfillment of regular tasks, with heed paid to issues of public concern like the management of land, natural resources and public assets, the rich-poor gap, environmental pollution, traffic accidents, corruption and wastefulness. — VNS
