VietNamNet Bridge – The Party Central Committee’s 13th plenum wrapped up in the capital city yesterday, Oct 14, with six groups of measures and five guidelines to be implemented in the next year for the country’s socio-economic development.

Party General Secretary Nong Duc Manh said issues discussed in the plenum were significant preparations for the upcoming 11th National Party Congress, slated for early next year.

The six groups of measures include creating an equal business environment and improving the competitiveness of enterprises; issuing fiscal and monetary policies to ensure macro-economic stability and to boost rapid sustainable economic growth; continue economic structuring to improve the efficiency and competitiveness of the economy; boosting exports and reducing the trade deficit; taking comprehensive measures to create jobs, reduce poverty, ensure social welfare and improve the people’s living standards; and improving the efficiency of State management.

Participants at the plenum also discussed guidelines for socio-economic development in the next five years: Rapid development must go alongside sustainable development; economic and political renewal must be carried out to build Viet Nam into a country of prosperous people, a strong and democratic nation and a fair and civilised society. Democracy must be widely practised, promoting the human factor to the highest extent, with a view to considering human being as the main subject, resource and target of the development. Production forces must be developed to a high-tech level while improving the production relations and socialist-oriented market institutions; the target is to build an independent robust economy in the conditions of international integration.

The Government would submit a plan of socio-economic development for 2011 to the National Assembly for consideration and approval.

Assessing the implementation of socio-economic development and State budget plan for 2010, Manh said this year, the country’s economy had recovered quickly; the State budget collection was higher than estimated; inflation was contained; trade deficit declined; social welfare, education and healthcare services were improved; national security and social order were maintained; and Viet Nam’s position and prestige in the international arena had continuously grown.

The achievements made in the last year of the 2006-10 five year plan - a year with many important events but also difficulties and challenges, showed the Party’s effective leadership, the efforts of the whole political system and the active contributions of the people, the army and enterprises, he said.

Manh pointed out shortcomings and weaknesses which needed to be addressed. He said the shortcomings were the consequences of both subjective and objective causes, including the influence of the world financial crisis and economic recession, natural disasters and diseases, inefficient management of State agencies and poor forecasting by consulting and assisting authorities.

In the meeting, the Party Central Committee decided to continue to implement a pilot project of the abolishment of People’s Councils at the ward and district levels in 10 provinces and cities as stated in the 12th National Assembly’s Resolution No 26/2008/QH12.

The project, designed to satisfy demands for administration reform, had shown positive initial results but remained a sensitive and important issue related to the organisation and operation of the whole political system, therefore, it needed more time and should be implemented cautiously, Manh said.

Related to the personnel preparations for the 11th National Party Congress, the plenum also analysed the requirements, standards and structure of a new Party Central Committee. The personnel planning would continue to be discussed in the Party Central Committee’s 14th plenum.

The committee decided to discipline Dinh Van Hung by relieving him of his position as the northern Ninh Binh Province’s Party Committee Secretary and member of the Party Central Committee for his violations of Party principles and regulations on practising democracy, working and management rules, and wrongdoings in personnel work. He was also found to have led an inappropriate lifestyle.

Concluding the meeting, Manh said the 11th National Party Congress was drawing close and members of the committee must effectively implement this years tasks, successfully organise local Party congresses as scheduled, and contribute to preparations for the 11th National Party Congress.
