In his remarks, Hue said the 17th-tenure Party Committee will resolutely deal with limitations and shortcomings, revamp leadership methods and styles, and promote democracy and a sense of responsibility.

He called for further instructions from the Party Central Committee (PCC), the Politburo, the PCC Secretariat, the National Assembly, the Government, and the Vietnam Fatherland Front, as well as the close coordination of ministries and agencies, the effective coordination of cities and provinces nationwide, and the support of the entire political system and local residents.

Delegates approved documents and a resolution of the 17th Hanoi Party Congress with specific targets and criteria for the 2020-2025 period, towards 2030 and with a vision to 2045.

Such documents demonstrate the will, confidence, and determination of the entire Party Organization and the people of Hanoi in building and developing the capital in the new era, Hue said.

The Congress also looked at draft documents to be presented to the 13th National Party Congress.

To complete targets and orientations, Hue urged the 17th-tenure Party Committee and each delegate to promptly and effectively materialize the resolution adopted at the Congress.

Specific plans and projects are needed to soon bring the resolution to life, he emphasized.
