Twenty-five officials were appointed to the Central Military Commission in the 2020-25 period.

Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong, Secretary of the Central Military Commission, said during the 2015-20 period, the commission always set an example of solidarity, took determination to make changes, had a lot of innovations and directed the entire army to successfully implement Resolution of the 10th Army’s Party Committee Congress as well as major military and defence objectives and policies proposed by the 12th Party Congress.

The commission gave consultations to the Party and State on military and national defence, promptly and effectively handled situations, firmly protected the independence, sovereignty, unity and territorial integrity of the Fatherland, he said.

The defence industry has made progress. Vietnam can master the manufacturing of technology and produce a number of modern weapons and pieces of equipment, he said.

 

Regarding defence external affairs, Trong said positive outcomes in this field contributed to protecting the country from the early days. Field hospitals in South Sudan operate effectively and become trusted addresses of UN officials and employees in the area and local people.

On behalf of the Poliburo, Secretariat of the Party Central Committee and the Central Military Commission, the Party chief thanked the commission’s officials of the 2015-20 period who have been relieved from duty for their contributions.

He urged newly-appointed members of the commission to uphold responsibility and solidarity, and have practical, sharp thinking, stay absolutely loyal to the Fatherland, the Party, the State and the people.

They must build a clean, strong, exemplary and typical Army’s Party Committee, taking the lead to successfully perform assigned tasks, Trong said.
