The congress then adopted the resolution.
The resolution stated that the congress agreed on the basic assessments of the implementation outcomes of the 12th National Party Congress’s resolution, the 1991 Platform on National Construction during the Transitional Period towards Socialism that was supplemented and developed in 2011, the 2011 - 2020 socio-economic development strategy, the 1991 Platform, and the 35 years of “Doi moi” (Renewal) policy, along with national development orientations and tasks for the time ahead as noted in the documents submitted by the 12th-tenure Party Central Committee to the 13th congress.
In the resolution, the Congress agreed not to amend or supplement the current Party's Charter.
The resolution also said the achievements during the 35 years of “Doi moi” and 30 years of implementing the 1991 Platform, especially the 10 years of the Platform supplemented and developed in 2011, have continued to affirm that the path to socialism in Vietnam matches the reality in the country and the development trend of the era, and that the Party’s clear-sighted leadership is the leading factor determining the success of Vietnam’s revolution.
Amid fast and complicated developments in the global situation, the Party’s Platform remains “the flag of ideology, the flag of combat, the flag gathering the great national solidarity” for the goal of rich people, strong nation and an equitable, democratic, and civilised nation.
The resolution underlined the overall goals and concrete targets for 2025, 2030, and 2045; and identified major socio-economic development targets for 2021- 2025, orientations for national development for 2021 - 2030, and the six key tasks for the 13th tenure. It also highlighted three strategic breakthroughs.
Delegates voted to approve the resolution of the 13th National Party Congress.
In particular, the congress asserted that the Party will stay persistent in Marxism - Leninism and Ho Chi Minh’s ideology, and continually apply and develop them in a creative manner that matches the reality in Vietnam in each period. It will also keep steadfast in the goal of national independence and socialism, and the “Doi moi” policy for the goal of a rich people, strong nation and an equitable, democratic. and civilised nation.
The congress also stressed that the Party must enhance Party building and rectification work to a strong and clean Party and political system, and push ahead with improving its mettle and leadership and ruling capacity in making and carrying out guidelines and policies in a way that match the reality in Vietnam and the development trend of the era.
The congress also pointed to the need to take timely action to institutionalise, concretise, and effectively implement the Party’s guidelines and the State’s policies and laws, while addressing shortcomings in the leadership, direction, and organisation of implementation.
The Party and State leader appealed to the entire Party, people, and army, along with compatriots both at home and abroad, to make all-out efforts to successfully carry out the 13th Congress’s resolution.
The 200-member Party Central Committee of the 13th tenure (2021-2025) made its debut at the closing ceremony of the 13th National Congress of the Communist Party of Vietnam in Hanoi this morning (February 1).
