HCM City (VNA) – The southern economic hub of Ho Chi Minh City is building particular policies to achieve more rapid and sustainable growth in the future.

Secretary of the municipal Party Committee Nguyen Thien Nhan was speaking at the 11th meeting of the city’s Party Organisation (10th tenure) on August 18.

He highlighted the significance of the event as it is a time to evaluate the implementation of the Resolution adopted at the 10th Congress of the municipal Party Organisation as well as seek solutions to fuel economic growth.


The city will map out three detailed plans to realise three resolutions on economy approved at the fifth plenary meeting of the 12th Communist Party of Vietnam Central Committee from now to the year’s end, he said.
