Party chief chairs meeting of sub-committee on 13th Party Congress documents

Party General Secretary and President Nguyen Phu Trong chaired a meeting on September 6 of the sub-committee on charge of compiling documents for the 13th National Party Congress.

The meeting aimed to collect opinions on the draft Political Report and draft Report on 10-year Implementation of the Platform on national construction in the period of transition to socialism (revised and supplemented in 2011) or Platform 2011 in short.

The Party chief appreciated the work of the editorial team who held many scientific seminars and studied various research projects in order to compile the two draft documents.

He said the two documents should review not only the past 5 years but also the more than 30 years since Doi Moi (renewal) was launched, and compared the performance with the tasks set by the 12th National Party Congress and the Platform 2011.

The Party leader required that the documents should clarify the outstanding hallmarks of the past tenure along with limitations and existing problems.

Meanwhile, the goals for national development should focus on the three strategic breakthroughs which are infrastructure, institutions and human resources, he said, adding that further research is needed in this regard.

Opinions contributed to the two draft documents will be studied and necessary adjustments made so that the two draft documents will be submitted to the Politburo, and later to the 11th meeting of the Party Central Committee.
