The meeting agreed that in the first nine months of the year, the COVID-19 pandemic caused the global economy to fall into a heavy recession with negative growth; seriously affecting Vietnam's deeply integrated economy. Thanks to the striving efforts and significant contributions of the entire Party, people and army, Vietnam is still highly appreciated by international friends, considered a bright spot in the world in epidemic prevention and control and socio-economic development. The people's confidence in the Party, the State and the socialist regime has been constantly strengthened and improved.

Vietnam’s economy still posted positive growth, reaching more than 2% in the first nine months of the year, with predictions ranging from 2% to 3% for the year (considered one of the 16 most successful emerging economies in the context of the pandemic).

Improvement has been seen in culture and society, while people's standard of living has been guaranteed. The fight against corruption, waste, and illegalpractices continued to be focused on a drastic and effective direction.

National defence and security have been strengthened, and national sovereignty has been maintained.

In addition to these respectable and proud achievements, the PCC also pointed out that the country’s socio-economic situation is still facing great difficulties and challenges. Economic growth has slowed down to its lowest level in 30 years. Production and business has declined; employment and income of the employee has been negatively affected; ensuring major economic balances faces many difficulties. Therefore, it is necessary to review and evaluate objectively and comprehensively the results and seek appropriate adjustment plans to ensure the highest socio-economic development across the final months of thisand the following years.

Regarding the socio-economic development plan for 2021, the Committee agreed that Vietnam will enter the year 2021 with many new difficulties and challenges more severe due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the global economic recession. However, the Party has proactively identified, promptly set out and drastically led and directed the organisation of as well as the synchronous and effective implementation of guidelines, policies, and response measures. Many valuable experiences have been drawn for the coming time.

In the immediate future, it is necessary to strengthen the analysis and forecasting of the situation, carefully review and correctly identify the main indicators and balances of the economy and development orientations for a number of important branches and fields,key breakthrough solutions with a high level of feasibility. On the basis of the results, achievements and lessons learned in 2020, the PCC has decided on key targets and tasks as well as synchronous solutions for socio-economic development in 2021 and the following years.

The meeting focused on in-depth discussions with many specific, relevant and unified comments on the contents that need to be supplemented and revised to submitted to the 13th National Party Congress.
