The fight against corruption is still long, arduous and fierce, says  General Secretary

Party General Secretary and President Nguyen Phu Trong chairs a press conference held in Hanoi to announce the 13th National National Congress’s results.

He was speaking at a press conference held in Hanoi on Monday to announce the results of the 13th National Congress of the Communist Party of Vietnam.

In response to a question about the continued corruption fight during the new tenure, Mr. Trong said this was a problem that every country has to cope with. It could occur any time but might happen on wide or narrow scope.

It is easy for people who have power or high position to corrupt or act on the benefit of a group, he said.

Since the anti-corruption campaigned began in 2013, some Party Central Committee members and Politburo members have been jailed and their assets which were up to billions of Vietnamese đồng seized.

He emphasised that the fight against corruption would never stop, no matter who the accused person is and there was no exceptions whatsoever.

Meanwhile, he hailed the 13th Party Congress a success.

“I have attended many congresses. This congress was a really successful one in terms of content, form, organisation, working style and the final result is that the Congress passed the Resolution,” Trọng said, adding that the Congress was very well organised from accommodation and means of transportation for delegates, creating favourable conditions for them to attend the congress.

 

Every thing was made to ensure safety, especially during the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, he said.

Answering a question on reasons for achieving remarkable results of the 12th tenure, Nguyen Xuan Thang, Director of the Ho Chi Minh National Academy of Politics and Chairman of the Central Theoretical Council, said a draft political report submitted to the 13th Congress highlighted important achievements in the fields of socio-economic, culture, environment, Party building work, political system, national defence and security and foreign affairs.

He attributed the results to the solidarity, unity in leadership as well as proper direction of the Party Central Committee, the Politburo, the Secretariat and the Party Committees at all levels. The drastic management and administration of the Government, the renewal of the National Assembly and the People's Councils at all levels also contributed to the success.

“The report emphasises the role of the people, the strength of great national unity, the efforts of cadres, party members and the people who carry out the tasks of the 12th term, thereby demonstrating the spirit of active and creative work, creating a successful term with many success imprints," Thắng said.

Responding to a question about the threats Viet Nam faced during this term, he said in addition to backward  economy; wastefulness, corruption, self-development and self-transformations are big challenges which are clearly stated in the report [of 13th Congress].

“These challenges are interacting with each other. Thus if we want to handle these things, we should have synchronised and positive solutions," Thang said. — VNS
