NDO - An inspection delegation of the Party Central Committee (PCC) held a working session with the Standing Board of the Ho Chi Minh City Party Committee, on August 7, on the implementation of Resolution No.29-NQ/TW of the 11th Party Central Committee on fundamental and comprehensive education and training renovation.

The delegation was led by Politburo member, Secretary of the PCC and head of the PCC’s Communication and Education Commission, Vo Van Thuong.

According to a report presented by the Ho Chi Minh City Party Committee, over the past five years of implementation, the city’s education and training sector has made breakthroughs and continued to develop and maintain itself as a leading flag of the country. However, the city is also facing a lot of challenges including an increasing number of immigrants, which has led to pressure on school facilities and a high number of students per class.

Speaking at the session, Politburo member Thuong spoke highly of the positives results obtained by Ho Chi Minh City over recent years.

The city has made great efforts to implement and concretise the document into specific programmes and actions to create positive developments, especially in innovation in testing towards students capacity development; innovation in education and training management; building the capacity of teachers and educational instructors; and innovation in educational financial mechanisms and facilities, he noted.

He emphasised that Resolution No. 29 has defined the overall goal of creating a fundamental change in the quality and efficiency of education and training to better meet the construction process, national defence and the learning needs of the people.
