In an article
published by the press on April 27, the Party and State leader highlighted issues
that need special attention in the personnel preparation for the approaching
13th National Party Congress, slated for the first quarter of 2021.
The 13th National
Party Congress is a political event of great significance that will set up
future orientations and encourage the entire Party, people and army to push
ahead with the reforms comprehensively and synchronously, thereby developing
the country in a fast and sustainable manner.
The two most
important contents of each national Party congress are the document and
personnel-related work. Particularly, the personnel preparation is of utmost
importance as it is the decisive factor in the success of a congress and the
successful implementation of the event’s resolutions.
Given this, the
Party and State leader’s article emphasised the role and significance of
personnel preparations, requirements for the personnel work of the 13th
National Congress, along with the implementation content and methods.
According to him, in
any revolutionary periods, cadres always play the decisive role, and the
personnel work is not only the key to the Party building but it is also vital
to all activities of the Party and the success or failure of the revolution.
He wrote that during
the process of leading the revolution, the Party always affirms that the
personnel work is decided by the political line and serves political tasks, so
aside from preparing the political line, it is also necessary to actively make
preparing personnel for the Party Central Committee, the Politburo, the
Secretariat, and key positions of the Party and the State, the leader noted
that the Party Central Committee is the highest leading body between the two
Party congresses, the combat staff, the core of political leadership, and the
centre of solidarity and unity of the whole Party and nation. Members of the
committee are of strategic importance and are the quintessence of the Party.
35 years of reform and more than 20 years of implementing the resolution adopted
at the third plenum of the eighth Party Central Committee on personnel strategy,
the contingent of cadres in the country has made developments in multiple
aspects with quality unceasingly enhanced, thus step by step meeting the
requirements of the era of industrialisation, modernisation, and international
the Party leader pointed out existing problems in the contingent of cadres,
such as a lack of outstanding leaders, managers, scientists and experts in
diverse fields. A number of young cadres even showed degradation in political
ideology, ethics and lifestyle.
noted that some cadres holding leading and managerial positions, including at
high levels, had low prestige and violated regulations. Not a few managers of
state-owned enterprises have taken advantage of legal loopholes and
intentionally breaching regulations for personal interests, thus causing serious
losses of State capital and property.
beginning of the 12th tenure, the Party Central Committee, the Politburo, the Party
Central Committee’s Secretariat, and the Party Central Committee’s Inspection
Commission have had to impose disciplinary measures against nearly 100 high-ranking
officials under the management of the Party Central Committee. Some were even subject
to criminal proceedings.
leader said the 13th National Party Congress is taking place in the
context of complicated and unpredictable developments in the region and the
world. While peace, cooperation and development are still the major trends, threats
posed by traditional and non-traditional security and climate change have been
fourth Industrial Revolution, the strong development of the knowledge-based and
digital economy, and the trend of internationalisation of human resources
present both opportunities and challenges for the country, he said, adding that
inside the country, the cause of Doi Moi (renewal) and international
integration has been intensified, and the position of Vietnam in the globe has
been elevated, creating a premise for the nation’s rapid and sustainable
same time, the Party and State leader pointed out four risks facing the Party’s
revolutionary cause, which are lagging behind in term of economy; deviation
from the socialist orientation; corruption and bureaucracy; and peaceful
is also the time of the transfer between the generations of cadres who were born
and trained in the wartime, and those who were born and grew up in the peace
time and trained in countries with different political institutions.
the tasks ahead of the Party are very heavy, Trong said.
According to him, to
deal with major issues of the country in the coming time, the Politburo and the
Party Central Committee have to make thorough preparations so that the congress
will discuss and decide the personnel work for the 13th tenure, thus ensuring
the success of the congress and the implementation of its resolutions.
The personnel work is extremely important, and
complex, too, requiring the Party Central Committee, the Politburo, the Party
Central Committee’s Secretariat and the whole political system to work with a
very high sense of responsibility and in an impartial and scientific manner
that puts the nation, Party and people’s interests above all, he said.
Highlighting requirements for the 13th-tenure
Party Central Committee, the leader noted that it must be a truly united, clean
and strong collective with high unanimity in both thought and action, strong
political firmness, taintless morals, persistence in the goals of national
independence and socialism, strategic vision, wisdom, an innovative and
creative mindset, and sufficient prestige and capability to lead the country in
the new development stage.
Besides, he said,
members of the 13th-tenure Party Central Committee must be the Party’s true
exemplars of political mettle, morality and work capability.
committee should also has an appropriate structure of young cadres, female and
ethnic minority ones to ensure its comprehensive leadership. The number of
members from key locations and sectors must be increased, while ensuring
inheritance, stability, innovation and continuous development of the committee.
preparation for the 13th national congress is the task of not only the
personnel sub-committee, the Politburo, the Party Central Committee or its
Secretariat but also the entire political system, all-level Party committees,
Party organisations, agencies, units and localities, he emphasised.
He went on that the personnel
work must be done well right from Party congresses at lower levels so as to
help make the best personnel preparations for the 13th national congress.
During the personnel
selection and arrangement process, it is also important to have precise assessment
of cadres’ strong and weak points so as not to choose wrong persons.
Additionally, it is
necessary to have appropriate personnel arrangement plans to bring into play
the strengths and limit the weaknesses of each person in order to create a strong
and relatively perfect leadership apparatus, he said.
stressed the responsibility of building a strong Party Central Committee,
Political Bureau, and Party Central Committee’s Secretariat to fulfill the
Party’s historical and political missions, build a clean and strong Party as
well as a developed country and bring wealth and happiness to people./.
