HANOI, Oct. 7 (Xinhua) -- The 13th Communist Party of Vietnam Central Committee (CPVCC) on Thursday concluded its fourth plenary session after completing all set agenda, Vietnam News Agency reported.
At the session, members of the committee discussed COVID-19 prevention and control and related policies under new circumstances, as well as the country's socio-economic situation in 2021 and development plan in 2022.
Speaking at the closing meeting, General Secretary of the CPVCC Nguyen Phu Trong said that Vietnam's economy has been severely affected by the latest wave of COVID-19 infection in the country, which made many targets unlikely to be reached this year.
Trong stressed promptly generating driving forces and creating the environment for economic recovery in the post-pandemic period, providing support and resolving difficulties for businesses and the people, and not letting the growth drivers decline in the long term.
Attendees of the session also gave their opinions on measures to intensify party building and rectification, such as on how to handle cases of the degradation of political ideology, morality and lifestyle, and corruption among party members.
They reached a high consensus on promulgating new regulations on what party members are not allowed to do, considering this as an important basis for handling violations of officials and party members, according to Vietnam News Agency.
