​Vietnam’s Party Central Committee commences sixth plenum

Wednesday, October 04, 2017, 11:27 GMT+7

The 12th Central Committee of the Communist Party of Vietnam begins its sixth plenary meeting on Wednesday, during which important policies will be discussed and punishments for violations by high-ranking officials be determined.

The plenum is scheduled to take place from October 4 to 10 in Hanoi.

During the gathering, delegates will review adjustments to the Party leadership, the building of a streamlined political system, and effective Party operations.

Making adjustments to the current management and financial mechanisms and the reform of public service institutions will also put forward for discussion.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam Nguyen Phu Trong stated that the sixth plenum will focus on prompt and essential topics relating to the country’s socio-economic development, economic growth, and political reform efforts.

He asked the delegates to show responsibility in finalizing the reports, resolutions and conclusions of the committee and in making decisions about major issues.

Following a request by the Central Inspection Committee on September 29, members of the Central Party Committee will vote to decide on an appropriate penalty for Nguyen Xuan Anh, Secretary of the Party Committee in the central city of Da Nang.

In mid-September, the Central Inspection Committee announced multiple violations by Secretary Anh, including using invalid degrees, and accepting cars and houses as gifts from local businesses.

Anh, as leader, is also responsible for multiple violations by the standing board of the Da Nang Party Committee during the 2015-20 tenure.
