Hanoi (VNA) – Hanoi has completed preparations for the city’s 17th Party Congress for the 2020-2025 tenure, said Vice Secretary of the municipal Party Committee Dao Duc Toan at a press briefing on October 6.

Toan stressed that draft documents of the congress have outlined the targets, tasks and solutions for the next tenure based on thorough assessments of outcomes in the previous tenure.

He affirmed that the city’s Party Organisation had completed all set targets in the 2015-2020 tenure, highlighting the efforts of the Party members, administration and people of the capital city.

According to Toan, a new point in the process of drafting the documents was the involvement of local officials, Party members and people across the city. In particular, ministries, sectors and central agencies as well as the Party Committees of the National Assembly and Government have also contributed their opinions, while the Politburo has given ideas to guide the process.

He noted that a new feature of the upcoming city Party Congress is the building of a Plan of Action to implement the resolution of the congress will be tabled for discussion during the congress.

Meanwhile, head of the city Party Committee’s Commission for Popularisation and Education Nguyen Van Phong said preparations of documents for the city 17th Party Congress have been implemented carefully.

The second draft Political Report was built based on the review of the implementation of eight working programmes, five major tasks, three breakthrough aspects, directives and thematic resolutions as well as outcomes of eight research projects under the Programme No 20-Ctr/TU issued on February 13, 2018 by the Hanoi Party Committee’s Standing Board.

Phong underscored that the report also includes updates from the draft Political Report of the 13th National Party Congress.

He expressed the belief that the draft documents of the Hanoi 17th Party Congress are the combination of the brainpower and consensus of the entire Party Organisation and locals in the city.

Answering reporters’ questions on the personnel work for the congress, head of the city Party Committee’s Commission of Organisation Vu Duc Bao said that the city had assessed the legal documents of all eligible candidates and submitted them to authorised agencies, while strictly following five steps in personnel preparations as guided by the Politburo.

At the press briefing, Pham Thanh Hoc, standing deputy head of the city Party Committee’s Commission for Information and Education said that three sub-committees have been set up to help the municipal Party Committee with preparations for the congress.
