The Plenary also reviewed the socioeconomic development strategy in 2011-2020 and agreed on the bases for the five-year period 2021-2025, with projections until 2030 and 2045, when it will be 100 years since the foundation of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, today Socialist Republic of Vietnam.
In accordance with these and other programmatic documents, the party’s Central Committee defined the objectives to be achieved until the middle of this century.

By 2025, Vietnam aspires to be a country with an income above the lower-middle level; in 2030, middle-high income; and by mid-century, an advanced, high-income socialist nation.
By voting, the members of the Central Committee of the PCV also approved the candidates to the Political Bureau and the Secretariat for the next term and analyzed other issues such as the fight against corruption and waste.
They also agreed that the country has made an active and responsible contribution to global and regional peace, stability and development, which is worth the recognition and support of the international community.
