Review to show how Vietnam's market economy fares
Publication Date : 20-03-2014
A review being undertaken by the Party Central Committee's Economic Commission will show how well Vietnam's market economy has maintained the country's socialist principles, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung said yesterday.
During a working session with the commission in the capital city, he said that compiling information for the review, which would study institutional tools used to develop Vietnam's market economy, was a very complex and time consuming task.
Dung, who is also a Politburo member, expressed the government's wholehearted support for the commission which, he said, was aimed at the common goal of socio-economic prosperity.
The Economic Commission is headed by Party Central Committee member Vuong Dinh Hue, a consultative body for the Party Central Committee, in particular the Politburo and secretariat, on socio-economic policies and strategies.
To discharge its advisory function, the commission gathers insights, ideas and solutions from experts and agencies across the country to serve the cause of national socio-economic development. In 2013, the commission conducted an appraisal of political and social aspects of the economy.
It dispatched teams to examine implementation of Party resolutions relating to socio-economic development in localities and regions across the country.
The Economic Commission was set up by the Politburo in December 2012.
