NDO – The 12th Congress of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV), held in Hanoi from January 20-28, 2016, after discussing documents submitted by the Party Central Committee 11th tenure has issue a Resolution on the success of the event.
The document approved the results of election of the Party Central Committee 12th tenure with 200 comrades, including 180 official and 20 alternate members.
It endorsed the basic content of the five-year evaluation of the implementation of Resolution at the 11th Party Congress (2011-2015) and the orientation and tasks for the next five years from 2016 to 2020 outlined in the Political Report and the Socio-economic Report presented by the Party Central Committee 11th tenure at the congress.
It gave an overall evaluation on the results of implementation of the 11th Party Congress Resolution and a look back on the 30-year Doi Moi (renovation) process over the 2011-2015 period, in which it affirmed both achievements and shortcomings, as well as mapped out solutions and directions for the next term.
It stated that domestic and international practices offer both opportunities and challenges for the nation, stressing that the increased combined strength of the country and its increasingly high international position will help the nation fully implement its commitments in the ASEAN Community and the WTO, as well as joining next-generation free trade agreements and integrating into the global community with a deeper level than the previous period.
It showed the four risks that the Party has indicated: the risk of lagging far behind on economic development than other countries in the region and the world; the risk of "peaceful evolution" of the hostile forces to sabotage the country; degradation of political ideology, ethics and lifestyle of a number of cadres, Party members, and civil servants; and the existence of complicated bureaucracy, corruption, and wastefulness.
To take full advantage of and promote the best opportunities and advantages to overcome difficulties and challenges, the Resolution stressed the need for the entire Party, people and army to unite as one to successfully implement the set goals and tasks, with a focus on building a strong and trustworthy Party, promoting national unity and socialist democracy, facilitating the Doi Moi process to quickly bring the country to become a modern and industrialised, and firmly safeguarding national independence, sovereignty, and territorial integrity, as well as guarding peace and positive international integration to serve for national development and enhancement of Vietnam’s position in the region and the world.
The document set a target for some key indicators over the next five years, including an economic growth rate at an average of 6.5-7% a year, per capita GDP of about US$3,200-3,500 by 2020, total social investment capital at an average of about 32-34% of GDP, State budget deficit at around 4% of GDP, total factor productivity (TFP) contributed to growth at about 30-35%, and urbanisation reaching 38-40% by 2020.
It also set goals for an unemployment rate in urban areas at less than 4%, having 9-10 doctors and over 26.5 beds per 10,000 people, health insurance covering over 80% of the population, and the poverty rate decreasing by an average of 1-1.5% per year.
By 2020, it aims for 95% of the urban population and 90% of the rural population to have access to clean water, and 85% of hazardous wastes and 95-100% of medical waste handled, with the forest coverage rate reaching 42%.
