Berlin (VNA) – The German newspaper “Unsere Zeit” (Our Time) recently ran an article praising the success of Vietnam’s 12th National Party Congress, highlighting the leadership of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) in the nation’s building and development.

The article said nearly 30 years ago, the CPV took course on Doi Moi, the renewal of the country towards a socialist market-oriented economy. This process has resulted in significant achievements, making Vietnam one of the fastest growing nations in the Southeast Asian region and in the future among the leading industrial nations of Asia.

Since 1990, the leadership of the CPV has been proven and expanded, with its membership doubling, to over 4.6 million.

It appreciated the priorities of the Party in the next five years, including promoting the building of a pure and strong Party, putting into play the strength of the entire nation and socialist democracy, stepping up reform comprehensively and synchronously, protecting the nation, and ensuring a peaceful and stable environment.

It quoted General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong as describing the strengthening of leadership and the fighting capacity of the Party as crucial to continuing the course of economic reform and improving the living conditions of the people in the new five-year socio-economic development plan.

With the leadership of the Party, Vietnam will continue with the principles of “retaining its independence and sovereignty, and ensuring peace and stability in the region and the world”, the article underscored.-VNA
