The new State President pledged to strictly and fully perform his tasks and authority, actively carry out the country's domestic and foreign affairs, defence and security tasks, while joining the entire Party, people, army and organisations in the political system to promote the spirit of “self-reliance, self-confidence, self-strength, self-resilience, and national pride.”

He vowed to strive to successfully implement all of the Party's policies and guidelines, starting with the Resolution of the 13th National Party Congress, aiming to achieve the country's centennial goals under the Party's leadership, and the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, now the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, to turn Vietnam into a socialism-oriented, developed and high-income nation.
