In Uncategorized on August 5, 2010 at 11:20 am

Hanoi is hurriedly readying itself for the Great Celebration of the 1,000th anniversary of the founding of Thang Long – Hanoi to take place over the next two months.

       Part of the “Ceramic Road Along the Red River”

Thang Long – Hanoi has been the cradle of Vietnamese culture for thousands for years and has been the pride of not only Vietnam, it has also attracted foreign scientists and people from around the world.

According to Dr. Luu Tran Tieu, President of the Vietnam Cultural Heritage Association, researchers have discovered many sites within Hanoi, which date back to the cultures of Phung Nguyen (2nd millennium BC), Đong Đau, and Go Mun (1st half of the 1st millennium BC) and Dong Son and Thanh Den.

The Co Loa Citadel, which was the capital during the 3rd century BC and under the reign of Ngo Quyen (938-944), was a breakthrough showing the ancient Vietnamese people’s strategic thinking in their march to the lowlands.

The most important discovery was that of Thang Long Imperial Citadel, which was recognized just last week as an UNESCO’s world cultural heritage site, opened the door to scientists, revealing many aspects of social, cultural, and economic life during the era in which the Imperial Citadel  operated.


The royal citadel’s area covers 19 hectares at 18 Hoang Dieu Street; this ancient citadel belonged to the Ly, Tran, early Le and Mac dynaties. It is believed to have once covered over 40 hectares.

According to directions from the Ministry of Politics and Prime Minister, the Hanoi People’s Committee began setting up the Steering Board of the 1000th Thang Long – Hanoi Ceremony in 1997, to implement more than 60 works to be included in the grand national event.

Among them, 8 constructions, including Hanoi Library, Kim Lien-O Cho Dua Road, Kim Lien T-Junction, Lac Long Quan Road and others became operational in 2009.

24 works are scheduled to line the “Ceramic Road Along the Red River” including statues of Uncle Ho and President Ton Duc Thang, the upgraded Vinh Tuy Bridge and four temples: Bach Ma, Voi Phuc, Kim Lien and Quan Thanh and many more will be completed before the great day, October 10.

Party conference prepares for national congress


QĐND – Monday, March 22, 2010, 20:39 (GMT+7)

The Party Central Committee opened its 12th conference in Hanoi on March 22 to discuss and approve draft documents to be presented at the upcoming National Party Congress slated for January 2011.


The documents include the (revised) 1991 programme on national construction in the transition period toward socialism, a 10-year strategy for socio-economic development through 2020, a political report from the 10th Party Central Committee, and a report on the implementation of Party Rules and proposed amendments.


During the week-long event, senior Party members will also look at personnel plans for the upcoming Party Central Committee and decide on the number of delegates to the Party Congress.


At the opening ceremony, Party General Secretary Nong Duc Manh highlighted the importance of the conference, saying it will set a new course for the Vietnamese revolution in the long run, as well as during each specific stage.


He said the documents have been supplemented and amended by the compiling board, which collected opinions from former Party and State leaders, key provincial and municipal officials, experienced State managers in various areas and leading scientists. Most leaders have reached a consensus on viewpoints, and several opinions should be discussed at the conference to come to conclusions.


Mr Manh said the political report, which was put on the agenda for discussion at the 11th Party conference, will include orientations and tasks for socio-economic development over the next five years, as well as Party building work. The report will help concretise the revised 1991 programme and a national five-year plan for socio-economic development through 2015.


The conference will review the implementation of the resolutions adopted at the 10th National Party Congress, the 2001-2010 strategy for socio-economic development, and the 1991 programme.


Another important task for the upcoming Party Congress is to elect a new Party Central Committee, which will lead the entire Party, the army and people to successfully carry out the Doi Moi (Renewal) and international integration process. 


General Secretary Manh asked delegates to discuss a plan drafted by the Sub-Committee on Personnel in terms of candidate criteria, numbers, structure, age, nominations, selection and voting.


New Party Central Committee members must be competent theoretically and practically, have political conscience, moral qualities and a healthy lifestyle, and win trust from the Party and people, said Mr Manh.

Party conference prepares for upcoming congress


QĐND – Saturday, October 10, 2009, 22:23 (GMT+7)


The Party Central Committee convened its 11th conference in Hanoi from October 5-10 to discuss a number of key issues in preparation for the 11th National Party Congress scheduled for January 2011.

Party members examined draft reports to be submitted to the upcoming congress, including a revised programme on national construction during the transitional period to socialism, a 10-year national strategy for socio-economic development in 2011-2020, and a detailed political report to be presented at the congress. The elite also gave opinions on amendments to the Party Rules, and reports on socio-economic development and budget spending in 2009, and estimates for 2010.   


Discussing the programme on national development, the delegates stressed the need to make clear the lessons of the Vietnamese revolution, the current international context, the socialist characteristics of Vietnam, the overall objectives when the transitional period is complete, economic sectors and their forms of ownership, and the promotion of democracy. 


They agreed to the draft strategy for socio-economic development through 2020, which looks at the achievements and weaknesses in implementing the 2001-2010 strategy and outlines objectives for the next 10 years. They proposed that the compiling board shed further light on the development of economic sectors; the mobilisation and use of various resources; the implementation of the industrialisation and modernisation process; the relationship between the market economy and socialist orientation; and the re-organisation of the State apparatus and its management. They asked the board to work further on issues relating to the fight against corruption and waste, the management of information, culture and minerals, social welfare, and environmental protection.


They asked the board to make an in-depth analysis of the relationship between rapid and sustainable economic development; economic sectors and their ownership; the development of a socialist-oriented market economy; solutions to overcome the drawbacks of the market mechanism and how to increase the efficiency of State management, promote democracy and enhance discipline.


For the first time, Party members discussed in detail the draft political report to be presented at the 11th National Congress, the theme of the congress and the organisational structure of the report. They assessed the implementation of the resolutions adopted at the 10th Party Congress, the shortcomings and lessons of experience; objectives, orientations and tasks for national construction and defence; and the building of the Party and the political regime in the next 5 years of the 11th tenure.


In his closing speech, Party General Secretary Nong Duc Manh described Party building as a particularly urgent and important task which is a decisive factor behind the development of the Vietnamese revolution and the existence of the Party and the people.


The Party Central Committee underlined the need to supplement and amend the Party Rules and assigned the Party’s Political Bureau to study, gather opinions from grassroots-level Party organisations and submit amendments to the 12th Party conference.


The Party Central Committee agreed to a report on the implementation of socio-economic development and budgetary tasks in 2009. However, they asked the compiling board to further analyse the growth model and the quality of growth and investment; economic restructuring; weaknesses in finance and banking; the implementation of economic rescue plans; the budget deficit; a possible return of high inflation; poverty reduction; weaknesses in education-training, science-technology, natural resources, the environment, administrative reform and combating corruption and waste.   


The elite approved major socio-economic tasks for 2010 and solutions to achieve the targets. They also proposed clarifying the economic growth rate, consumer price index, export growth, import surplus, budget deficit and rural planning and investment. They said the government should adopt specific solutions to improve the quality of education and vocational training, reduce poverty in a sustainable manner, protect the environment, practice frugality, combat corruption, reduce traffic accidents and ensure food hygiene and safety.


The Party Central Committee called on the entire Party, people and the army to join hands to overcome difficulties, successfully implement the resolutions of the 10th Party Congress and actively prepare for the upcoming congress to move the country forward, towards the ultimate goal of building a wealthy people, a strong country and an equitable, democratic and civilized society.
