The Politburo of the Communist Party in Vietnam has assigned Nguyen Ba Thanh and Vuong Dinh Hue, both members of the Central Committee of the Communist Party (PCC), to the positions of head of the PCC Internal Affairs Commission and head of the PCC Economic Commission, respectively.
Nguyen Ba Thanh currently works as Party secretary of Danang City and is a top leader in all affairs of the city.
Vuong Dinh Hue is currently the Minister of Finance. He previously served as Auditor General of the State Audit of Vietnam for more than five years.
The PCC Internal Affairs Commission and the PCC Economic Commission were established by the Politburo in late December.
The PCC Internal Affairs Commission is a consultancy agency for the Central Committee regarding policies and strategies related to internal issues. It will also serve as a standing unit for the Central Steering Committee for Anti-Corruption.
The PCC Economic Commission serves the same purpose, but in relation to economic issues.
The assignment was made via Decision 655 following the resolutions of the fifth and sixth meetings of the Communist Party Central Committee.
