Hanoi (VNA) – It has
been a very successful tenure of the government, said National Assembly (NA) Chairwoman
Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan during the ongoing 53rd session of the NA Standing
Committee on February 23.
Briefing participants on an overview
report of the government’s performance in the 2016 – 2020 tenure, Minister and
Chairman of the Government’s Office Mai Tien Dung said the government has stuck
to its commitment of building a public-serving and constructive government of integrity
and action since the beginning of its term.
The government has without delay
issued programmes and plans to translate the resolutions of the Party and NA
into reality and implemented the 2011 – 2020 socio-economic development
strategy, Dung said.
In the face of the COVID-19
crisis, the government has demonstrated consistency in fulfilling the dual goals of containing the novel coronavirus, with a motto “fighting the pandemic is like fighting an enemy,” and recovering and developing the economy, he stated.
This year, the government will
continue focusing on fulfilling the twin goals, he noted, adding that it will keep
guard up against the disease, seize all opportunity to recover and develop the
economy in the “new normal,” and create solid foundation for the successful achievement
of the next-five-year socio-economic goals.
Nguyen Van Giau, Chairman of the
NA Committee for External Relations said the government has accomplished Vietnam’s
international mission over the last five years, reflected by the successful
hosting of the APEC Economic Leaders’ Week 2017, the 2019 US – Democratic People’s
Republic of Korea Summit and the ASEAN Chairmanship Year 2020. The country is also undertaking the role as a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, and has signed
a number of new-generation free trade agreements, expected to set the scene for
its sustainable development, Giau said.
NA Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan also praised the
government’s effort to firmly guide the country to success despite multiple
challenges. The government has showed its dynamism, proactiveness, and innovation
in its governance and listened to opinions of every NA deputy, she said.
She also highly spoke of the
government’s performance in diplomacy over the last five years./.
