Draft political report to 17th provincial Party Congress under discussion

(LSO) – The provincial People’s Committee held a meeting on November 5 to examine a draft of the political report of the 16th-tenure provincial Party Committee to be submitted to the seventh provincial Party Congress.

Ho Tien Thieu, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee chaired the event.

At the meeting, participants listened to the draft political report, which evaluates the implementation of key objectives in each field of the tenure.

After five years of implementing the Resolution of the 16th provincial Party Congress, Lang Son achieved significant outcomes thanks to joint efforts of the whole political system and consensus of people and business community.

Ho Tien Thieu, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee speaks at the meeting.

Sixteen out of the 18 main socio-economic targets set under the Resolution are expected to be fulfilled or overfulfilled by 2020, leaving two targets not achieved.

The report also pointed out some outstanding problems. For example, the average annual economic growth is lower than the set target; the development of border gate economy has yet to match its potential; the land planning work has limitations; the investment promotion and mobilisation of additional capital sources for key projects failed to meet requirements; and the quality of education remains uneven.

After listening to opinions of the delegates, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Ho Tien Thieu directed the provincial Department of Planning and Investment to supplement the report with the implementation of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and key projects, the development of businesses in the province in terms of number and scale, the thrift practice and wastefulness prevention, and the administrative reform.

He underlined the importance of the report, which illustrates the performance of the whole term. Therefore, it is necessary to make comprehensive and balanced evaluations on all sectors, while focusing on the implementation of key programmes and tasks set by the Resolution. He also asked the report compiling board to study the opinions of the delegates to further improve the draft report.
