Concluding the meeting, Party leader and President Nguyen Phu Trong said with many major anniversaries and big events in April and the first half of May, the key officials, members of the Politburo, the Party Central Committee Secretariat and leaders of the NA and the Government have closely followed the working plan and reality to give instructions to relevant agencies, organisations and localities in implementing set tasks.

The key officials at the meeting reached high consensus on the key tasks in May and the time ahead. In the immediate future, priority should be given to organising the 10th plenum of the 12th Party Central Committee and meetings of the Politburo and the Party Central Committee Secretariat; ensuring the pace and quality of the compilation of documents to be submitted to the 13th National Party Congress as well as preparations for all-level Party congresses towards the 13th National Congress; while continuing to prepare for the 7th session of the 14th National Assembly.

The Party leader and President stressed that the officials should closely monitor the implementation of set programmes and plans, adding that the organisation of all-level Party congresses should not interfere with regular tasks in socio-economic development, security-defence, external relations and Party building. He instructed that the fight against corruption and negative phenomena must be continued with resolve and persistence while upholding the spirit of solidarity and unity at all-level administrations and in all sectors, and winning public consensus.

The Party chief required the Party Central Committee Office to coordinate with relevant agencies in arranging the working schedules of key Party and State officials, thus ensuring the smooth and efficient operation of the Party and the State apparatus.-VNA
