In 2020, under the leadership and direction of the Central Military Commission and Defense Ministry, the 10th Military-wide “Determined to Win” Emulation Congress was held successfully. Military units also took the lead in combating the sabotage efforts of hostile forces to protect the ideological basis of the Party and the outcomes of the renewal process.

Next year, the whole military will focus on studying and carrying out the Resolutions of the 13th National Party Congress and the 10th Military Party Congress and building an exemplary Military Party Organization.

Military units will continue following situational developments, so as to advise the Party and State on how to deal with military and defense situations in an effective manner. They will also carry out military and defense strategies and plans, the Law on Border Guard, the National Assembly’s Resolution on joining UN peacekeeping operations while promoting exercise and preparing forces to deal with incidents, contributing to safeguarding national independence and territorial integrity. Units in the whole military will also accelerate the implementation of emulation movements.

At the conference, delegates approved a report on outcomes of emulation-reward work of the military in 2020 and orientations for military and defense missions in 2021.
