Nearly 1,400 delegates for 11th Party Congress

QĐND – Thursday, December 23, 2010, 20:33 (GMT+7)

The 11th National Congress of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) will open at the National Convention Centre in Hanoi on January 12, 2011 and is expected to last for nine days.

The information was released by Pham Xuan Son, Deputy Head of the CPV Central Committee’s Commission for External Affairs, in Hanoi on December 22, at a conference preceding the event to inform diplomatic corps and international organisations in Vietnam.

This is an important political event of the Vietnamese Party, State and people, Mr Son said, adding that it is expected to draw the participation of nearly 1,400 delegates who represent more than 3.6 million Party members in 54,000 grassroots Party organisations.

Besides a strong contingent of local journalists, more than 150 foreign reporters from international news agencies will cover the event, he said.

The congress will discuss and approve a political report by the CPV Central Committee (tenth tenure), a report reviewing the 20-year implementation of the platform on national construction in the transition to socialism, and a detailed draft report that sums up the implementation of the 2011-2010 national socio-economic development strategy.

It is also expected to give approval to the platform on national construction in the transition to socialism (revised and supplemented in 2011), the 2011-2020 national socio-economic development strategy as well as the amended Party Statute.

The congress will elect a new CPVCC for the 11th tenure of 2011-2015, the highest body of the CPV leadership between the two congresses.

The entire Party members and Vietnamese people of all strata, including those living abroad – actively contributed comments to draft documents for submission to the 11th National Party Congress.

On the basis of the high consensus and determination of the whole Party, people and army during the discussion and formulation of the Congress’s documents, the CPV defined the theme of the 11th National Party Congress as follows: “Continuing to strengthen the Party’s leadership and combative capacity, promoting the aggregate strength of the entire nation, stepping up the renewal comprehensively and creating a foundation for Vietnam to become a modern industrialised country by 2020”.

In the next five years, Vietnam strives to attain a GDP growth rate of 7-8 percent per year with a per-capita income reaching US$2,100 in 2015, 1.7 times higher than that of 2010.

According to Mr. Son, the CPV affirms its intention to continue using Marxism-Leninism and Ho Chi Minh thoughts as its ideological foundation.

Vietnam is consistent in the path of national development towards socialism and implementing a foreign policy of independence, self-control, peace, cooperation and development; multilateralisation and diversification of relations; taking the initiative in international integration; and becoming a friend, a reliable partner and a responsible member of the international community for the interests of the nation and for a rich and powerful Socialist Republic of Vietnam.

Thai PM in court as party faces ban threat

In Uncategorized on October 18, 2010 at 6:24 am

BANGKOK, Oct 18, 2010 (AFP) – Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva arrived at court amid tight security Monday as his ruling party fights to avoid a political ban that could bring fresh upheaval to the deeply divided kingdom.

Abhisit will be a witness for the defence at the Constitutional Court in what could be the final hearing in the case, which centres on accusations of misuse of a 29-million-baht (900,000 dollar) state grant in 2005.

Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva (C) arrives at the Constitutional Court in Bangkok on October 18, 2010. AFP

The Democrat Party — Thailand’s oldest party — could be dissolved if found guilty, while the premier, who was its deputy leader at the time, could be handed a five-year ban from politics, alongside other executives.

Abhisit looked relaxed as he arrived but made no comment to the throngs of reporters gathered outside the court, where there was a heavy police presence.

Thailand’s Election Commission (EC) in April called for the ruling party to be abolished over the accusations, as well as a separate case alleging an undeclared political donation.

The call coincided with the country’s worst political violence in decades, which ultimately left 91 people dead and almost 1,900 wounded in a series of street clashes between opposition protesters and armed troops.

The Democrats are accused of paying 23 million baht to advertising firms, despite only having permission to spend 19 million on billboard marketing.

Abhisit has rejected accusations that a member of his party had attempted to influence the judiciary over the case.

The opposition’s allegations that a Democrat lawmaker met an aide of a Constitutional Court judge ahead of the hearing — and was captured on video — were splashed on the front pages of local media Monday.

Judicial rulings have played a pivotal role in shaping Thailand’s political landscape in the past.

The Democrats came to power two years ago after court decisions ousted allies of fugitive ex-premier Thaksin Shinawatra, who was himself unseated in a 2006 military coup.

Two premiers were forced from office by the judiciary in 2008 — one of whom, Samak Sundaravej, was removed for taking payments for hosting TV cooking shows.

Uncertainty over the government comes at a difficult stage for the country, which remains bitterly torn in the wake of deadly opposition protests by the opposition “Red Shirt” movement.

The Reds accuse Abhisit’s government of being undemocratic because it came to power with army backing in a parliamentary vote after the controversial court rulings, and their protests have called for immediate elections.

Some observers questioned whether Abhisit’s backers in the military and Bangkok-based elite would allow the Democrats to be toppled.

Former Thai diplomat Pavin Chachavalpongpun, an author and fellow at the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies, said he did not believe the party would be disbanded.

However, he said one potential motive for dissolution would be as a gesture to the Reds to rebuff allegations of double standards in the legal system.

Pavin said “even then, they will have a plan B”, with rumours that a new party would swiftly rise from the ashes of the old.

Party Central Office marks 80th anniversary

QĐND – Saturday, October 16, 2010, 20:51 (GMT+7)

The Central Office of the Communist Party of Vietnam, which plays an important role in the Party’s leadership, has celebrated its 80th birthday in Hanoi.

A ceremony took place on October 16 in the presence of General Secretary Nong Duc Manh, former general secretaries Do Muoi and Le Kha Phieu, former Chairman of the National Assembly Nguyen Van An, former State President Tran Duc Luong, and Minister of Defence Phung Quang Thanh. 

The history of the Central Office has been closely connected to that of the Communist Party of Vietnam, said Ngo Van Du, current Head of the Central Office. Its main functions still include advice and assistance to senior officials in the Politburo, the Secretariat and the Central Committee of the Party.

Mr Du said the agency now comprises a strong array of experts in various fields to help with appraising projects, reporting socio-economic issues, constructing laws, and advising the Politburo on policies and measures to curb the impact of the global economic downturn and shift the country’s economic model.

In addition, he said, the Central Office has improved the quality of its logistical and financial work for the activities of the Party’s central leadership organs, leaders, and specialized commissions.

In his speech, General Secretary Manh praised the Central Office and its local counterparts for their close coordination with related agencies to accurately, quickly and comprehensively reflect the country’s situation. It has also proposed timely measures to deal with pressing issues, which has ensured the Party’s leadership in politics, economy, society, defence, security and external affairs.

Mr Manh also pointed out that the Central Office has played an active supervisory role to make sure that the Party’s resolutions are fully and effectively implemented, thus creating impetus for the country’s industrialization, modernization and international integration.

At the ceremony, the Party Chief asked the Central Office to prepare thoroughly for the coming 11th National Party Congress.

He urged the agency to improve its professional work, ensuring each staff member of the Office fully grasps late President Ho Chi Minh’s teachings on the crucial importance of office work and follows his moral standards.

Mr Manh asked the Office to reform its working styles and apply scientific methods to raise the quality of its work and create a highly cultural environment.

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.
