Hanoi (VNA) – Many delegates to the ongoing 12th National Party Congress have shared the view that training is a must for the new contingent of officials so that they can perform their tasks well in the coming tenure.

Speaking on the sidelines of the Congress in Hanoi, they said it is necessary to intensify Party building and reorganisation to prevent and combat the degradation of political thought, morality and lifestyle, and quell notions of “self-evolution” and “self-transformation” inside the Party.

Delegate Nguyen Viet Dung from Ho Chi Minh City said although the Party personnel work was improved during the last tenure, it hasn’t met requirements. He hoped that personnel training and preparations for the future generations of Party leaders will be fine-tuned after this Congress.

Nguyen Huu Lam, a delegate from Nghe An province, said special attention must be paid to the training of officials, especially those at the grassroots level who are close to people and directly realise the Party’s guidelines and policies.

As Party building is a regular and continuous task of all-level Party organisations, it must be carried out in terms of thought, politics and organisation, delegate Le Hoang Phung from Lam Dong province said.

Phung added that the Party building needs to focus on fighting the degradation of political thought, morality and lifestyle among Party members, especially senior officials, and on preparing personnel for leading positions.

The work is one of the top missions that the entire Party must fulfill to achieve the targets set for the next five years, the delegate noted.-VNA
