Many delegates noted that the draft documents were prepared thoroughly, generalising ideas of the entire Party, people and army in developing the documents. The ideas collected at Party congresses at all levels and from National Assembly deputies, socio-political organisations and people from all walks of life were refined and included systematically in the draft documents as a study reviewing developments of the tenure, drawing lessons and devising plans for the next five years.

Opening the session, Politburo member and President of the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) Nguyen Thien Nhan made a presentation on promoting the national unity’s strength in contributions to realising socio-economic development targets successfully and building a strong and healthy Party and Government.

He stated five specific tasks which should be implemented to promote the national unity’s strength, contributing to realising the socio-economic development targets.

First, the VFF and its branches should improve the effectiveness of communication, education and promotion of patriotism, national pride, tradition of gratitude, kindness and clemency, as well as the awareness of the great unity’s strength in national development.

Second, the VFF and its branches should enhance communication and education about the congress’ resolution and policies on socio-economic development to create a high consensus in the country’s development scheme and the Party’s leadership.

Third, the VFF should contribute actively to building and implementing the Party’s policies and the State’s laws to promote national advantages, especially those related to Vietnamese citizens.

Fourth, movements and mobilisation campaigns run by the VFF and its branches should be organised effectively to turn the great unity into a stimulus and a spiritual and material source for the country’s rapid and sustainable development in the current integration period.

Fifth, the Party’s directive method to the VFF and its branches should be improved as stated in the congress’ report.
