Fourth session of 13th Party Central Committee opens

The 13th Party Central Committee opened its fourth session in Hanoi on October 4 under the chair of Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong.


Before the four-day session began, participants observed a minute’s silence in commemoration of people, officers and soldiers who died during the COVID-19 pandemic.

At this session, the Party Central Committee will focus on discussing COVID-19 pandemic prevention and control and the viewpoints and policies on this work in the new situation.

The committee is scheduled to study the socio-economic situation in 2021 and socio-economic development plan in 2022, among others.

This session also seeks to intensify Party building and rectification and the fight against degradation of political ideology, morality and lifestyle, and internal “self-evolution” and “self-transformation” manifestations.

The Central Committee will make adjustments and supplements to the regulations on things that Party members are not allowed to do, and consider several other important issues.

In his opening remarks, Party Chief Nguyen Phu Trong stressed that Party building and rectification has always been the key task of special importance and vital significance to the Party and regime.

He underlined the need for active preventive measures as well as strict handling of the degradation in political ideology, morality and lifestyle as well as corruption and negative phenomena among Party members./.
