Hanoi (VNA) –
Reuters news agency on January 26 ran an article highlighting the
opening of the 13th National Congress of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV)
in Hanoi and the Political Report by General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong.
The leader delivered
the Political Report of the 12th Party Central Committee, in which he hailed
booming economic development and containment of the COVID-19 pandemic as major
achievements, according to the article.
“Our country has been
developing rapidly and sustainably, consolidating people’s confidence in the
Party, the state and the socialist regime,” the leader is quoted as saying.
“Corruption has been
gradually contained and prevented.”
The news agency added
that Vietnam has seen its economy outstrip much of Asia in the past year,
keeping the COVID-19 pandemic at bay thanks to stringent quarantine measures,
testing and tracing.
“In the context of
rapid and complicated global evolution, we have been focusing on consolidating
national defence and security,” the leader is quoted as affirming.
Vietnam needs to rightly
and effectively handle relations with large countries and neighbouring
countries, said the top leader.
Meanwhile, an article
of Xinhua news agency said that during the congress, delegates will review the
party building work and the leadership of the 12th CPV Central Committee,
before electing a new one for the 13th term.
They will also review
the past 35 years of the country's reform, discuss the implementation of the
10-year socio-economic development strategy, and map out directions and tasks
for national development from 2021 to 2025.

the 13th National Party Congress was also published in the International
Analysis section of HK01, one of the largest online newspapers of Hong Kong (China).

Congress brought together 1,587 delegates representing over 5.1 million of
