(LLCT) - President Ho Chi Minh paid due attention to the issue of Party building on morality since early time, especially in his final work on the Party’s 39th founding anniversary (February 3, 1969): “Enhance revolutionary morality, wipe out individualism”. Thoroughly grasping his thought, the issue of preserving Party members' discipline must now be associated with the training of revolutionary morality and the fight against individualism; Party members take responsibility and actively act against corruption, waste, and bureaucracy.

Manifesto of the Communist Party and the orientation value for the transitional path to socialism in Vietnam

(LLCT) - It has been 170 years since the Manifesto of the Communist Party was born. The value of its theoretical points has remained unchanged up to now. The country on the path to socialism can apply it creatively in accordance with its specific conditions. For Vietnam, the chosen transitional path to socialism is oriented and lightened by the Manifesto and Marxism - Leninism. The vitality of the Manifesto is the constant inspiration which requires us to supplement and develop the theory of socialism and the transitional path to socialism in Vietnam in the new context.

Vietnam - Japan cooperation Achievements in training of leaders and managers at HCMA

(LLCT) - Japan’s Assistance Strategy for Vietnam rests on three pillars, which are promotion of economic growth and strengthening international competitiveness, response to fragility and good governance.

At the same time, improved capacity of public leaders and civil servants helps enhancing efficiency and sustainability of JICA’s loan and technical cooperation projects. Together with JICA, National Personnel Authority of Japan (NPA) - the agency responsible for ensuring fairness in personnel administration and protecting the benefits of national public employees - is willing to share Japan’s philosophy and know-how of civil servants training with HCMA.

A nation's power includes not only its hard power (geographical - population, economic, military factors) but also its soft power (political institution, ideology and national strategies (state leaders), and the will of the people in implementing strategies, social values, international relations). Therefore, the study of a country’s soft power should be taken under overall consideration of its comprehensive power.
