The seventh plenary session of Vietnam’s Party Central Committee has concluded in Hanoi, during which delegates have agreed on measures to control power and prevent negativities in personnel work.

During the six-day meeting from May 7 to 12, members of the Party Central Committee gave their opinions on several main topics, including building a contingent of senior officials, especially at strategic level, with proper virtue, capacity and prestige on a par with their assigned tasks.

They also discussed the reform of wage policies and the renovation of social insurance policies.

A resolution was issued at the end of the plenary meeting.

Speaking at the closing ceremony, General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam Nguyen Phu Trong stated that the resolution highlights the requirement to seek a new performance assessment method for officials, which is more objective and accurate.

The document also mentions an effective mechanism to encourage them to overcome difficulties to improve themselves, and measures to control power, prevent bribery for job titles, and fight against individualism in personnel work, the Party chief continued.

He underscored the principle that all power must be controlled through mechanisms, and authority must go with responsibility.

It is vital to timely discover and handle violations of Party regulations and state laws, tackle the abuse of power in personnel work, and prohibit any bribery for job titles, Trong asserted.

"The seventh session of the 12th Party Central Committee was a success," the Party chief said at the end of his speech.

“The plenum reflected a sense of responsibility, unity, and high consensus among the Party Central Committee, creating a new impetus for comprehensive reform, the building of a strong Party, and the sustainable development of the country," he stated.
