He ordered strengthening the leadership, management and instruction in the implementation of socio-economic solutions.

The Party leader said Party Central Committee lauded the tremendous efforts and contributions as well as good deeds of people, soldiers and businesses in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, and thanked overseas Vietnamese and international friends for their support./.
