NDO/VNA – Egyptian newspapers have published articles lauding Vietnam’s outstanding accomplishments in recent years, especially as the 13th National Congress of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) is on the horizon.

Online newspaper Events Magazine ran an article titled “2016-20 term: Vietnam's relations with the Middle East - Africa and Egypt rise to new heights”, in which journalist Ahmed Hassan noted that the Congress is “an important political event that takes place every five years, attracting the attention of public opinion inside the country and the world”.

Over the past five years, under the leadership of the CPV, Vietnam overcame many challenges and made special economic achievements, thus raising the country's role and position in the international arena.

On the international arena, Vietnam's partners are increasingly diverse, with the relationship between Vietnam and the Middle East - Africa in general and bilateral ties between Vietnam and Egypt in particular elevated.

Regarding to foreign affairs, the article said, Vietnam has also made remarkable achievements by connecting and enhancing friendly relations, cooperation and confidence between countries inside and outside the region in the context of geopolitical instability. The author attributed the results to the CPV’s strategic orientations.

Another article, published by Elwatan News, praised Vietnam’s Renewal achievements under the CPV leadership. It said after more than 35 years of implementing the Renewal process, Vietnam has grown itself into a developing nation with middle income, a dynamic market economy that is rapidly integrating into the world.

The article attributed those achievements to the clear-sighted leadership of the Communist Party of Vietnam founded by President Ho Chi Minh.

It concluded the Party’s upcoming 13th congress in Hanoi is of paramount importance as it will chart a new course of development for Vietnam in the next five years and beyond.

Al Messa newspaper also reported the upcoming Congress, highlighting that this offers Vietnam an opportunity to study and discuss measures to foster reform and economic restructuring.

* German newswire Deutsche Welle (DW) recently ran an article hailing Vietnam’s successes in combating the COVID-19 pandemic as well as economic development on the threshold of the 13th National Party Congress.

The article lauded Vietnam among few countries in the world that have been successful in preventing the outbreak, saying soon after the onset of the health emergency, authorities put in place strict measures to control the spread of the virus, which helped keep infection number under control throughout the year.

According to DW, the Southeast Asian country will hold the 13th National Party Congress from January 25 to February 2 to select new leaders of the Communist Party of Vietnam and outline policies for the next five years, of which COVID-19, trade and climate change will be in top priorities.

Major German research institutes and foundations have spoken highly of Vietnam's efforts in fighting COVID-19 and boosting economic development on the threshold of the 13th National Party Congress, and highlighted priorities of the country’s leaders in the next five years.

In an article published on the website of Hanns Seidel Foundation, which is among the leading political research foundations in Germany, author Magdalena Knödler noted that the 13th National Party Congress, one of the most important political events of the country, will be slated for late January in Hanoi.

Knödler remarked that 2020 was a difficult year for Vietnam. However, the country well performed the dual roles of the Chair of the Association of the Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, thereby enhancing its influence in the region.

Meanwhile, the Konrad Adenauer foundation, in its recent report, affirmed the results of the Congress will determine the future domestic and foreign policy direction and will be groundbreaking for Vietnam's economy in the next five years.

Vietnam is becoming more attractive in the region and the world as business partners are welcomed, while the country has stable political background and favourable investment conditions, the report underlined, citing the signing of the EVFTA and the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) agreement.

* Pallab Sengupta, Politburo member and head of the International Department of the Communist Party of India (CPI), has affirmed that the CPV is the true representative of the entire Vietnamese nation.

Sengupta said founded in 1930, the CPV led the Vietnamese people from success to success in the fight against French colonialists, Japanese and American imperialists via heroic struggles to win independence in the north, national reunification in 1975, which ultimately led to the establishment of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.

Sengupta made it clear that Vietnam’s achievements are a result of great contributions by the CPV, from planning to directing and applying proper strategies towards sustainable development. Vietnam today is a reflection of the CPV and its contributions, he said.

* Prof. Alexander Sokolovsky from the Far Eastern Federal University has affirmed that the CPV is always a Party of the people and for the people.

Sokolovsky, who is also Chairman of the Russia – Vietnam Friendship Association of Primorsky province, made the affirmation in his article published on the Russian Spring (Rusvesna) e-newspaper on January 23. He had 40 years of close connection with Vietnam in science, education, socio-culture and visited the country many times.

In the article, he not only highlighted Vietnam’s achievements in all social aspects but also expressed appreciation for the country and people. He said the beauty and richness of Vietnam is not only endowed by the nature but the diligence and high responsibility of people also, which help them achieve the goal of peace, stability and prosperity.

The scholar expressed his belief that the 13th National Party Congress will be the next lighthouse with clear plans to take the country to a new development period, and wished that the event will be a success.
