The 14th meeting of the Communist Party of Vietnam Central Committee (CPVCC), 10th tenure, closed in Hanoi on December 22, following 10 days of sitting.

In his closing speech, Party General Secretary Nong Duc Manh said that with a high level of responsibility, the meeting discussed and endorsed recommendations to the draft documents to be submitted to the XIth National Party Congress, which were put forward by Party congresses at all levels, National Assembly deputies, the Fatherland Front, mass organisations, officials, Party members, the people and overseas Vietnamese.


The suggestions cover a wide range of fields with different scopes, contents and levels, but all are earnest and reflect the thoughts, concerns and findings about the country’s renewal and development process amid new conditions, demonstrating their sense of identity with the Party and the nation and their wish for the Party to be cleaner and stronger and see the country develop rapidly and sustainably, Mr.Manh said.


He went on to say that the meeting considered opinions that more clearly and deeply express assessments of the country after 25 years of renewal, 20 years of implementing the 1991 Platform, 10 years of implementing the socio-economic development strategy and five years of implementing the 10th National Party Congress Resolution.


The meeting looked into strengths and shortcomings in leadership, and performance, lessons of experience, the country’s current situation and emerging issues that need to be addressed.


It also adjusted a number of points in the targets, tasks, policies and major solutions, especially in human resource, social progress and equality, building new rural areas, environmental protection, natural disaster prevention and control and response to climate change.


Regarding the Party building work, the meeting endorsed many ideas that mainly focused on the relationship between improving the Party’s leadership and combative capacity and building a clean and strong Party, as well as continuing to step up the implementation of the “Studying and following the moral example of Ho Chi Minh” campaign and renovating the Party’s personnel work and leadership modes in line with new development requirements.


The delegates reviewed and assessed mechanisms and models on corruption prevention in order to put forward more practical and effective solutions and policies in the future.


With these amendments and supplements, the draft documents to be submitted to the Congress have been completed, representing the immense intellectual ability of the entire Party and people.


Regarding personnel nomination to the CPVCC, 11th tenure, the conference made careful consideration of the results reached during the previous meeting and approved a list to be introduced at the 11 th National Party Congress.


The CPVCC also decided the time of convening the 11th Congress and adopted its draft agenda and working regulations for submission to the Congress for approval.


General Secretary Manh affirmed that with the results reached during this conference, the CPVCC presented a high sense of responsibility, held fast to principles as well as basically completed the 10 th tenure’s programmes and undertook considerable preparations for the 11th National Party Congress under the Party statutes.

Party central committee wraps up 13th meeting


QĐND – Friday, October 15, 2010, 21:19 (GMT+7)

The issues discussed and decided at the 13th meeting of the Communist Party of Vietnam Central Committee (CPVCC), 10th tenure, are of extreme importance and a continued preparation for the 11th National Party Congress.


The CPVCC’s General Secretary Nong Duc Manh delivered the remarks at the closing ceremony of the eight-day plenary meeting in the capital city of Hanoi on Oct. 14.


The delegates upheld knowledge, debated with a high level of democracy and sense of responsibility, and made valuable recommendations to plans, said the Party chief.


The CPVCC applauded preparations for the meeting, showed consensus with the Political Bureau’s explanations on the questioned contents, and adopted a resolution on the decided issues, he said.


Regarding the performance of the socio-economic development plans and tasks and the State budget in 2010, Manh said the meeting agreed that the national economy has been recovering quite rapidly, while a number of industries and sectors have been regaining their growth momentum.


According to the Party leader, macroeconomic balances were ensured, budget collection exceeded the estimates, bank interest rates were lowered, overspending dropped compared with the forecast level, inflation was controlled, the trade deficit decreased and a large amount of capital was mobilised for development projects.


The nation has paid due attention to education, training and healthcare for the people, managed to improve the people’s living conditions, while maintaining security, national defence and social order, as well as promoting Vietnam’s position and prestige in the international arena.


The achievements obtained in 2010 — the final year of the 2006-2010 plan and a year with a wide range of important events as well as difficulties and challenges — demonstrated sound leadership of the Party, the concerted efforts of the entire political system and the great contributions of the entire people, army and businesses, Manh stressed.


At the plenum, the CPVCC gave opinions on the general goal, targets and development directions of industries and sectors, and six groups of measures which should be taken in 2011, focusing on creating an fair business environment and sharpening the competitiveness of domestic companies.


The country will implement financial and monetary policies to ensure macroeconomic stability and foster rapid and sustainable growth; continue economic restructuring towards the direction of enhancing the economy’s efficiency and competitiveness; boost exports and cut the trade deficit.


The measures also aim to create more jobs for labourers, reduce poverty, ensure social security, improve people’s living conditions, and better the efficiency of the State management apparatus.


The delegates also discussed and put forth suggestions about socio-economic development outlooks and the State budgets for the next five years, saying that rapid growth should be combined with sustainable development.


They agreed that comprehensive economic and political renewal should be stepped up to build Vietnam into a strong nation, with a rich people and a democratic, equal and civilised society. The human factor should be fully upheld and people should be considered the subject, major strength and target of development.


The Party elite emphasised the necessity to bring into play production forces with scientific and technological advances and improve production relations and the status of the socialist-oriented market economy.


The conference decided to continue the pilot project of not organising the People’s Council at district and ward levels in 10 cities and provinces nationwide in pursuant to the 12th National Assembly’s Resolution 26/2008/QH12.


Manh said the 13th meeting of the CPVCC also discussed and performed another important step towards personnel preparations, which will be submitted to the 11th National Party Congress.


The general secretary asked CPVCC members and Party committees at all levels to work out plans to accomplish set tasks, firstly focusing on overcoming flood consequences in the central region and organising Party congresses in the remaining cities and provinces and agencies on schedule.


He also requested CPVCC members and localities accomplish the tasks set for the year-end months, map out solutions to successfully carry out socio-economic development plans and the State budget for 2011, and prepare effectively for the 14th meeting of the CPVCC (10th tenure) in late 2010 and the 11th National Party Congress scheduled to take place in early 2011.

NA standing committee discusses mineral law

NA standing committee discusses mineral law


QĐND – Saturday, October 02, 2010, 20:19 (GMT+7)

Transferring rights to explore and exploit minerals topped the agenda at the 35th session of the National Assembly Standing Committee chaired by NA Vice Chairman Nguyen Duc Kien on October 1.


Discussions on the topic stemmed from the amended draft Law on Minerals.


Chairman of the NA Finance and Budget Committee, Phung Quoc Hien, said the definitions of mineral exploration, exploitation and processing were not clear in the draft law.


Chairman of the NA Committee for Culture, Education, Youth and Children, Dao Trong Thi, said the regulations for transferring mineral rights must be tightened and that it was crucial to have the Government involved in the deals to limit speculation.


Nguyen Van Thuan, chairman of the NA Legal Committee, agreed, saying companies should be required to meet specific criteria to be able to bid on projects or accept transfer rights.


NA Vice Chairman Uong Chu Luu said he disagreed with a regulation that would automatically give exploitation privileges to individuals and organisations that were licensed to explore for minerals.


He said this was an unfair regulation for other individuals and organisations, and suggested that rights for exploiting minerals should be auctioned.


However, Minister of Natural Resources and Environment, Pham Khoi Nguyen, said if there were separate auctions for mineral exploration and exploitation, there would be a shortage of companies involved in those activities.


To ensure contributions to the State budget from mineral activities, committee members agreed that companies and individuals who were licensed to explore for minerals must deposit a specific amount of money before beginning operations.


The same day, the NA Standing Committee heard a report on the settlement of voter petitions which was sent to the 7th session of the 12th National Assembly.


Head of the NA Ombudsman Committee, Tran The Vuong, said the NA had received 1,643 petitions. “Nearly 350 petitions have been settled by local administrations and the remainder have been sent to relevant authorities for their consideration and response,” Vuong said.


Members attributed the tardiness in settling voter complaints to shortcomings in issuing legal documents. They asked ministries and agencies to review documents guiding the Laws on Electricity, Health Insurance and Price Ordinance to amend and supplement any inappropriate clauses.

Vinashin committee works on restructuring group


QĐND – Wednesday, August 18, 2010, 21:12 (GMT+7)


Permanent Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Sinh Hung has reiterated the need to consolidate the Vietnam Shipbuilding Industry Group (Vinashin)’s operations to help the group stabilise and develop into the key component of the country’s shipbuilding industry. 

Mr. Hung, who is also head of the steering committee for the restructuring of Vinashin Group, made the statement at a working session in Hanoi on August 17. 


The steering committee should make accurate assessments of the operational capacity of Vinashin’s holding company, subsidiary companies, joint ventures and investment projects as well as the group’s debts to find out the best solutions for restructuring, he said. 


In an instruction signed on August 16, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung required that any development plan for Vinashin should focus on three main operations, which are shipbuilding and repair, support industries for shipbuilding and training a skilled workforce in this field. 


He asked the Ministry of Transport to present a plan on restructuring the group to him within the fourth quarter of this year. 


The PM assigned the Ministry of Finance to be responsible for dealing with the group’s debts and devising schemes to ensure capital sources for production. 


He requested Vinashin to assess the operational capacity of the holding company, subsidiary companies, joint ventures and investment projects and its finance, asset deficiency and debts. 


He also asked the group to focus its resources on implementing its production plan and existing shipbuilding contracts, devise a scheme on loan repayment to credit organisations and review the group’s investment projects in the mentioned-above fields and sell or equitise the remaining fields within the law.

Le Kim Dung, Deputy Head of the International Cooperation Department of the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs praised ASEAN officials’ efforts to secure a draft declaration of ASEAN Leaders on human resource development and skills for economic recovery and growth as well as a draft declaration on social welfare for women and children. The two drafts will be submitted for approval to the ASCC and the upcoming ASEAN Leaders Summit in Hanoi this October.


Mrs Dung said Vietnam needs to boost human resource development by developing a skilled workforce, promoting technical cooperation with other countries and issuing declarations on human resources and skills for economic recovery and growth.


Vietnam is currently creating a draft declaration on developing social welfare for women and children in ASEAN nations, she added.

Committee reviews campaign on Uncle Ho’s moral example


QĐND – Saturday, June 26, 2010, 21:15 (GMT+7)

The central steering committee for the “Study and follow Ho Chi Minh’s moral example” campaign convened in Hanoi on June 25 to review the performances in the first half and deploy major tasks for the rest of the year.


Following the discussion, Party General Secretary Nong Duc Manh, Head of the committee, praised the results that Party committees and administrations at all levels and the entire people have reaped in implementing the campaign during the first six months of 2010.


Party committees and administrations at all levels have shown their creativity in activities in response to the campaign, making them part of the regular tasks of officials and Party members, thereby receiving broad support from the entire Party, mass organisations and people, he said. As a result, the drive has made positive impacts on the country’s accomplishment of socio-economic targets.


Manh stressed that the campaign should be implemented persistently, regularly and continuously to turn it into part of people’s life and a social movement, helping to build up the nation’s culture and a foundation for the people’s spiritual life.


To achieve greater and more practical results, those in management positions and Party members at all levels must set good examples themselves and pioneer in performing the drive, the Party chief emphasised.
