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.

(LLCT) - Over the years, Vietnam has achieved outstanding economic development achievements. However, the country is entering a new development stage with the challenges of the "middle-income trap", the economy is still unsustainable, the quality of growth and competitiveness of the economy is low and increasingly uneven among sectors and localities, the inequality of income also increases. In order to ensure the sustainability and inclusiveness of economic growth, solutions need to be devised to develop an advantageous sector, to improve reasonable allocation and transparency of public resources; to improve productivity; and to ensure educational development meets the Industrial Revolution 4.0.

Building outcome standards for training programs in Ho Chi Minh National Academy of Politics

(LLCT) - The establishment of outcome standards for training programs and disciplines is one of the important solutions to improve the quality of training. Outcome standards form criteria for assessing the quality of university and training programs. In Vietnam, since 2010, the Ministry of Education and Training has instructed training institutions to develop and issue outcome standards requirements for all training programs. The Ho Chi Minh National Academy of Politics has determined that it is imperative to develop its program outcome standards, thus reflecting its responsibility in training and fostering cadres, managers and Marxism - Leninism.

(LLCT) - Protestantism has strongly developed in Vietnam in recent years, especially in areas of ethnic minorities. In addition to its active impacts on the building of an advanced culture and creation of a more civilized and progressive lifestyle among ethnic minorities, it is also disturbing and degrading many traditional and cultural values of ethnic minorities. Therefore, there should be solutions to promote the active aspects and limit the negative aspects of this religion. 

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) - Previously, Karl Marx presented a historical materialism approach to the nature of degeneration: “Degeneration is a social phenomenon originating from humans and human society; it is deterioration of labour; consequently, humans are gradually losing their human characteristics; human beings are not themselves anymore and they turn back to rule and enslave human beings and human society”. From Karl Marx’s approach to degeneration, the author confirms  that degeneration is a popular social phenomenon in Vietnam nowadays. It exists in many fields of social life, which specifically include degeneration in production behaviours (or labour morphology) and labour products; degeneration in social relations; degeneration in systems of social values; deteriorated power; degeneration in belief behaviour and religious faith.

(LLCT) - Over the past years, Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia have actively implemented their opened, diversified and multilateral foreign policies  while giving high priority to the comprehensive corporate relationship among the three countries. The outcomes achieved in the fields of politics-diplomacy and security-national defense over the past time are the efforts made by the three countries in seeking a model of connected development and cooperation. In order to bring cooperation and connection to a new level, it is necessary to consolidate and develop the traditional friendship and special solidarity as well as enhance the coordination among the three countries by implementing bilateral and multilateral cooperation programs.

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.
