Members of the National Assembly yesterday studied a political draft report of the Executive Committee of the Eighth Central Committee of the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party, to the upcoming ninth Party Congress.

The political draft report calls on the enhancement of unity within the Party and a cohesive unity in the whole nation, and continued upholding the renovation line. The calls also cover the enhancement of roles and capacity of Party’s leadership, focus on the materialisation of the Party’s line, active step of transformation in poverty reduction, and support for development, industrialisation and modernisation on the basis of the tapping of national potentials in combination with the epochal potentials.

The report has highlighted the achievements of the Executive Committee of the LPRP Central Committee, Eighth Party Congress, over the past five years, which resulted in the consistent economic growth of 7.5 per cent per year on average. The number of poor households has also reduced from 39 per cent in 2005 to 21 per cent in 2010.

In its next five-year direction and focus (2010-2015), the Party will concentrate on furthering the renovation cause and poverty reduction with an aim to lift the country off the list of least developed countries.

It will also focus on sustaining political stability, economic growth to ensure the GDP growth at 8 per cent per year and the annual per-capita income of USD 1700 by 2015.
