A national conference was held in Hanoi on January 9 to officially launch the Party building and organisation tasks in 2014.

According to the Communist Party of Vietnam Central Committee (CPV CC)’s Commission for Organisation, in 2013 a number of major policies on Party building and personnel organisation were put in place, with more attention paid to their quality and feasibility.

The implementation of personnel policies – covering assessment, recruitment, planning, training, arrangement and use - was renovated in both content and methodology to enhance effectiveness.

At the event, representatives from ministries, agencies and localities highlighted achievements gained in Party building and organisation work, and the shortcomings and weaknesses that need to be put right. They offered their suggestions for successfully performing this year’s tasks.

On behalf of the Politburo, Le Hong Anh, permanent member of the CPV CC Secretariat, and To Huy Rua, Secretary of the CPV CC and head of its Commission for Organisation, praised the sector’s 2013 achievements, saying that they have contributed to creating strong changes in Party building and organisation work, improving the leadership and combat strength of Party officials members, and boosting the implementation of socio-economic development tasks, thus raising the country’s prestige and position in the international arena.

Anh did point out some limitations and shortcomings regarding the cumbersome and inefficient apparatus of several agencies in the political system.

Concurring with the plan agreed for the year ahead, Anh also asked the sector to step up research and assistance for Party committees and organizations, helping them to fully implement existing resolutions and laws and overcome shortcomings.

The sector should well perform the task of acting as an advisor for Party committees and organisations so as to continue renovating and strengthening the apparatus of the Party and the political system, he noted.-VNA
