Resolution of the 5th Plenum of the Party Central Committee (8th tenure): Cultural strategy of the Party in the renovation period

(LLCT) - Over 20 years of implementing the Resolution of the 5th Plenum of the Party Central Committee (8th tenure, 1998), Vietnamese culture has achieved a lot of new values and developments that are imbued with national, humane, democratic, scientific and popular spirits. However, the achievements in the field of culture have not been matched with the available potential and have not had strong influence on building up the people's healthy cultural environment. Therefore, it is necessary to further renovate the leadership of the Party and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of State management over culture, focusing on building culture inside the Party and the State apparatus. Each executive committee, authority, union, staff and Party member needs to seriously consider their responsibilities in leadership, direction and management, as well as draw on their experiences to implement the Resolutions well in the coming period.

Views of the Party on preventing “office term-bound thinking”

(LLCT) - Together with the “group” interest and obsession with achievements, “office term-bound thinking” has become a “disease” causing much harm to the Party and dissatisfaction among the people.

University autonomy is inevitable for the fundamental and comprehensive innovation of education in Vietnam

(LLCT) -  The concept of university autonomy globally reflects the transformation of the state-to-university relationship in the spirit of upholding the academic freedom of the university and less direct interference of public administratives into university governance on organization, finance, and personnel. In Vietnam, the concept that university autonomy means self-responsibility is experimentally implemented by more than 20 pilot universities in six areas: organization and personnel, finance - property, training, science - technology, international cooperation, and quality assurance education. In spite of many difficulties, the initial positive results have proved the correct policy of university autonomy.

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.

(LLCT) -  In the context of market economy development and administrative reform, the State not only organizes and manages the society through legal institutions but also through satisfying the essential needs of people - providing public services for the society. In order to well perform this function, it is necessary to renovate and clearly define the roles and functions of the state apparatus in general and its roles and responsibilities in public service delivery in particular in order to improve the quality and the effectiveness of this activity, better satisfying the increasing demands of the people and society, achieving the goal of sustainable socio-economic development and building the State stronger and better.

The U.S. - China relations and their impacts on Vietnam

(LLCT) - Recently, the China - U.S. relations are a vivid and typical model of great power relations in the current period. It is where both countries cooperate and compete in all areas without causing a war or a great conflict and are ready to compromise to protect their national “core interests”. After a year in power, U.S. President Trump’s policy towards China is beginning to take shape. Understanding correctly the relations between these two great powers is vital to small countries, including Vietnam, to minimize risks and maximize benefits for their own in the regional and international arena.

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.
