According to the Political Report of the Hanoi Party Executive Committee, in the past term, the Municipal Party Committee implemented in a timely and effective manner eight major programs, focusing on five key tasks, and three breakthrough stages, and achieved important, comprehensive results, with many outstanding marks.

Accounting for only 1% of the area and 8.5% of the population, Hanoi contributes over 16% of GDP, 18.5% of budget revenue, 20% of domestic revenue and 8.6% of total import- export turnover of the country.

Technical and social infrastructure, with a number of large-scale and modern projects, have been developed. Waste, wastewater treatment, pollution prevention has significantly improved.

The Party building and reorganization task has had many innovations. The inspection and supervision work has been strengthened. Through inspections, officials who violated the rules have been strictly disciplined, including a number of key officials of districts and towns. During the term, 4,143 party members and 59 party organizations were disciplined.

The political report also pointed out some limitations such as: The quality of some planning projects, planning management, population management, land management, construction order, and traffic safety is still limited. The land devoted for public transport development, air pollution treatment, control and treatment of wastewater, transport... have not reached the set goal.

The leadership and capacity of some party committees and party organizations, especially at grassroots levels, remained low. Some Party committees lost the role of leadership, and as a result, some complicated cases occurred. Some Party committees had signs of losing "internal solidarity", negatively affecting the local movements.

There were also signs of deterioration of political ideas, morals and lifestyles among some officials and party members. Several party members showed signs of "self-development", "self-transformation". They violated the rules and were criminally punished.

Hanoi sets the following targets: By 2025 - to quickly and sustainably develop the city towards a green, smart, modern city with high competitiveness in the country and the region; completing the industrialization target, with per capita GRDP of $8,300-8,500;

By 2030 – to become a "green - smart - modern" city; to develop dynamically, effectively with regional and international competitiveness; to complete industrialization; per capita GRDP to reach $12,000-13,000.

By 2045 – to have a high quality of life; comprehensive and sustainable economic, cultural and social development; to be a globally connected city with international competitiveness, per capita GRDP to reach over $36,000.

One of the main tasks and solutions in the period 2020-2025 emphasized by the capital city is to focus on building a contingent of officials to meet the requirements in the new phase, doing well in protecting internal politics, speeding up decentralization and authorization associated with strict inspection and control of power in the work of cadres, especially for the leaders;

To perform the assessment of personnel qualifications well, not to let people with political and power ambitions engage in bribery for power to enter the city’s contingent of key officials and at the same time not lose virtuous and talented people.
