Hanoi (VNA) – Delegates to the ongoing 12th National Party Congress have lauded political reports presented at the event, saying they are prepared thoroughly and gather together the opinions of Party members nationwide.

Nghiem Xuan Thanh, a representative of the Party Committee of the Centrally-run Business Bloc, said through discussions, the delegates reached a consensus on the assessment of achievements Vietnam has recorded over the past five years.

In the context of complicated regional and global situations, the country has basically stabilised the macro-economy, curbed inflation and kept economic growth at an appropriate level.

The delegates attributed such attainments to contributions by the banking sector through monetary policies, Thanh said.

The Congress also outlined tasks for the next five years which will continue the restructuring of economic sectors dovetailed with growth model reform, focusing on investment overhaul – beginning with public investment.

According to Thanh, commercial banks, credit institutions and businesses, especially State-owned groups and corporations, will be revamped. At the same time, more efforts will be made to effectively control bad debts and guarantee public debts of State-owned enterprises within the safety level.

Pham Manh Thuong, a delegate from the northern province of Bac Giang, said political reports delivered at the event have summarised the country’s 30 years of reform and development.

The Congress requires the brainpower of all the delegates to continue with reform, development and integration, he said, voicing his belief that Vietnam will become a prosperous industrialised country at an early date.

Pham Manh Dao from the southern province of Dong Nai underlined the need for Vietnam to make thorough preparations for integration in terms of productivity and product price and quality, describing integration as a playground.

Pham Thien Nghia from the Mekong Delta province of Dong Thap said Vietnam labour structure is shifting from agriculture towards industry.

He, therefore, suggested more attention be paid to industry in order to create a momentum for the economy.-VNA
