Last year, the GDP’s head organs embraced and implemented resolutions and directives from higher levels, well performed military-defense tasks and comprehensively and effectively directed units in the whole military to carry out plans and programs on Party and political work, built the GDP’s head organs, and made positive changes compared to 2017 while well implementing “Determined to Win” emulation movements.

On behalf of the GDP, Gen. Cuong hailed the good results of the GDP’s agencies’ and units’ task performance over the past year.

In order to fulfill missions in 2019, Gen. Cuong asked the GDP’s head organs to embrace their functions and missions and better their advisory role on Party and political work in the whole military, promote political and ideological education, enhance information dissemination and the combat against the “peaceful evolution” plot on ideological and cultural front, and bolstered “Determined to Win” emulation movements.

The GDP’s Director asked affiliated units to further study and strictly implement the CMC’s Resolution, the MND's Action Plans in implementing Resolution No.4 of the 12th Party Central Committee, the Politburo’s Directive 05 and the CMC’s Standing Committee’s Instruction No.87 on enhancing the movement “Learning and following the thought, moral example and style of President Ho Chi Minh.”

At the conference, the GDP’s head organs launched the “Determined to Win” emulation movement in 2019 and the GDP’s leaders presented emulation flags to six units, including the People’s Army Newspaper. The GDP also awarded its emulation flags to eleven affiliated units and the title “Determined to Win Unit” to 70 groups and other noble titles to groups and individuals in recognition of their good task performance in 2018.
