That was stated yesterday by secretary of the city Party Committee Dinh La Thang while concluding the two-day 7th session of the 10th committee on September 24 and 25.

General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam Nguyen Phu Trong has many times affirmed that Vietnam has enough resolutions and mechanisms but their implementation has not been good and effective, according to Mr. Thang.

Hence, HCMC must take the lead in practicing and specifying the 12th Party Congress’ resolution and the city’s 10th Party resolution, he said.

If the city really makes efforts and there is a mechanism for it to mobilize human, material and financial resources especially those from citizens, it will be able to successfully carry out its targets including seven breakthrough programs, Mr. Thang said.

If mechanisms are outplaned and well implemented, they will contribute in promoting democracy in party activities, uphold party disciplines and rules, ensure the principle of democratic centralism and increase the responsibility of individuals especially leaders, he stressed.

They will also improve the quality and effectiveness of party leadership; promote the role, activeness and creativeness of organizations in the political system; intensify collective strength and the party’s solidarity and unity and renew party leadership method to the operation of the political system, he believed.

He proposed every member of the city Party Committee especially key leaders of agencies on their working positions and responsibilities to be exemplary and serious to implement the above requirements. 

After two working days, the conference passed statements and seven draft action programs to implement the resolution of the 10th Party Committee.

Mr. Thang required agencies and districts to focus on administrative reform and intensify IT application towards e-government implementation in the city.

They should concentrate on mobilizing social resources to carry out projects under the seven breakthrough programs and give priority to key projects on technical and traffic infrastructure for the connectivity of the southern key economic zone.

The conference discussed and agreed with working regulations of the city’s Party Committee’s executive and standing boards and the inspection committee of 10th party tenure.

These are very important documents specifying functions and missions of the party committee and the standing board according to the 12th party regulation to continue reforming the party’s leadership method and administrative reform.

During the first nine months this year, the Gross Regional Domestic Product (GRDP) of HCMC increased 7.6 percent. It is expected to reach 8 percent this year meantime the country has been striving to reach the Gross Domestic Product growth of 6.3-6.5 percent.

The city’s budget revenue hit VND220 trillion (US$9.87 billion) accounting for 73.5 percent of plan. The number of newly established businesses neared 26,000 with the total registered capital of VND212.1 trillion ($9.51 billion).
