NDO – Truong Quang Nghia, member of the Party Central Committee (PCC) and Minister of Transport, has taken office as the Secretary of the Da Nang municipal Party Committee for the 2015-2020 tenure, following the Politburo’s decision announced at a conference in the city on October 7.
Addressing the event, Pham Minh Chinh, Politburo member and head of the PCC’s Organisation Commission, praised the unceasing efforts made by the Party organisation, authorities and people of Da Nang towards boosting local socio-economic development and promoting extensive international integration over the past few years.
However, during the 2015-2020 tenure, the Standing Board and the Secretary of the municipal Party Committee committed wrongdoings which have affected the Party’s prestige, he said, adding that the appointment of Truong Quang Nghia aims to ensure the direct, comprehensive, regular and consistent leadership of the Politburo and the PCC’s Secretariat over the municipal Party organisation.
Chinh expressed his belief that in his new position, Nghia will continue to build on and effectively promote the achievements of former leaders, joining the Standing Board and Executive Committee of the municipal Party Committee to lead the local army and citizens to develop Da Nang into a dynamic and creative city with rapid and sustainable development.
For his part, the newly appointed Secretary of the Da Nang Party Committee vowed to do his best, together with the Standing Board and the Executive Committee, to fulfill all assigned tasks, with the immediate task being that of successfully organising the APEC High-level Week 2017 next month.
Truong Quang Nghia is an experienced official in various working fields, including Party building, State management on economics, urban transport and enterprise management. In the past, he once worked as the deputy Secretary of the Da Nang Party Committee for over two years.
He has been appointed to replace Nguyen Xuan Anh, who was dismissed from the positions of Secretary of the Da Nang Party Committee, member of the municipal Party Committee’s Standing Board and Executive Committee for the 2015-2020 tenure, and member of the PCC, under the disciplinary measures adopted by the PCC at a meeting on October 6.
Anh was held accountable for the violations committed by the Da Nang Party Committee as its head.
He was also found to have committed serious violations of the Party’s working regulations, which adversely affected the Party organisation’s prestige and causing upsets among officials, Party members and the people.
