Accordingly, Vietnam is set to become a developing nation with modernity-oriented industry and surpass the low-middle-income level by 2025; a developing nation, with modern industry and high middle income by 2030; and a developed nation with high income by 2045, the official elaborated.

The congress will review the implementation of the resolution adopted at the 12th National Party Congress and other documents such as the platform of national construction during the transition to socialism and the socio-economic development strategy for 2011-2020, and the assessment of the 35-year renewal and 30 years implementing the 1991 Platform.

According to Politburo member Thuong, over the past five years, the entire Party, people and army have carried forward solidarity and made efforts to complete set targets and tasks, creating a premise for the next tenure.

He cited the country’s annual average GDP growth at 6% during the 2016-2020 period, along with achievements in education-training, science-technology, culture and social affairs, with the poverty rate dropping to below 3%.

Vietnam has paid attention to natural resources management, environmental protection and climate change adaptation, he added.

The country has made strides in disease prevention and control, especially Covid-19, he said, stressing the country’s socio-political stability, consolidated national defence and security, expanded external relations, and improved position, prestige and role in the regional and international arena.

Due attention has been placed on Party building and rectification, and the fight against corruption, wastefulness and other bad deeds has reaped marked results, the official went on.

The Politburo member said documents to be submitted to the congress have been prepared thoroughly and contributed by all-level Party committees, National Assembly deputies, the Vietnam Fatherland Front, socio-political organisations, officials and Party members, people from all walks of life, and overseas Vietnamese.

Regarding preparations for the important political event, Politburo member Thuong said the work has been basically completed, adding the organising board and relevant agencies and units are continuing with preparation review.

The Information and Education Commission has charted information and communications plans, and instructed art performance programmes to celebrate the congress, he continued.

He stressed the launch of a website on the 13th National Party Congress in six languages – Vietnamese, English, Russia, China, France and Spanish, a press centre for the congress, and an exhibition showcasing books on the event.
