people of all social strata, including intellectuals at home and abroad, push
ahead with judicial reform and the building of a rule-of-law socialist State,
increase resources for national defence and security and promote the building
of a strong People’s Army and People’s Public Security force to ensure a

He also pledged to work together with the National
Assembly, the Government and the entire political system to keep a close watch
on the implementation of visions, guidelines and strategies on comprehensive
national development, ensuring that no one is left behind, especially in
disadvantaged, remote, border and island localities.
Mentioning difficulties and challenges during the
2016-2021 tenure, notably the pandemic’s severe impacts on human health and the
global economy, Phuc stressed the significance of the trust of people and
international friends in the country’s political resolve and regime.
The great national unity bloc and the determination
of the Government and people will help Vietnam sail through the fourth wave of
pandemic outbreaks, and make new development milestones, he said.
