Vietnamese Party General Secretary and State President Nguyen Phu Trong talked about his re-election as the country’s Party leader during a press conference in Hanoi on Monday morning.

The press meeting was chaired by General Secretary Trong following the conclusion of the 13th National Party Congress in Hanoi.

Speaking at the event, the Vietnamese Party chief stated that the 13th National Party Congress had ended successfully the same day.

The organization, preparation of documents, personnel planning, and other tasks on the agenda were completed according to plans.

Certain measures were also taken to ensure safety of the five-yearly Congress against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The development orientations set by the 13th National Party Congress are not only for the next five or ten years, but for a longer vision, especially the 100th founding anniversary of the Communist Party of Vietnam in 2030 and the 100th founding anniversary of the country in 2045.

The resolution adopted by the Congress is hoped to create more benefits for the people and contribute to national development.

General Secretary Trong praised the contributions of local media as they played an important role in the success of the grand event.

The Party leader thanked everyone for congratulating him on his re-election, as well as for wishing him good health, adding that health is a significant factor for him to perform his duties.

“As you all know, I’m no longer in perfect health due to old age," General Secretary Trong said.

"I had asked to retire, but the Congress has elected me; and as a Party member, I have to comply with it.

“I will try and do my best.

"But only one individual is not enough, as the country will need the solidarity and unity of the entire Party, military, and people.”

General Secretary Trong also pledged to continue working relentlessly to fight corruption, adding that the positive results of anti-corruption efforts in the past tenure were just the beginning.

The 13th National Party Congress took place at the National Convention Center in the capital from January 25 to February 1, with the attendance of 1,587 delegates representing over 5.1 million Party members nationwide.

The Congress elected the 13th-tenure Party Central Committee with 200 members, including 180 official and 20 alternate members. 

During its first meeting on Sunday, the 13th Party Central Committee elected the Politburo, General Secretary, Secretariat, Central Inspection Committee, and Chairman of the Central Inspection Committee.
