– The Party Central
Committee’s Economic Commission on May 4 held a meeting of the steering
committee for reviewing the 15-year implementation of a Party Central Committee
resolution on agriculture, farmers, and rural areas.
The steering committee for reviewing the realisation
of Resolution No.26-NQ/TW on agriculture, farmers, and rural areas, issued at
the seventh plenum of the 10th-tenure Party Central Committee in August 2008,
was established under Decision No.02-QD/TW, dated March 26, 2021, by the Party
Central Committee Secretariat.
Chairman of the Economic Commission Tran Tuan
Anh said agriculture, farmers, and rural areas always hold a particular
importance to socio-economic stability and development, and they are also a
strategic issue in the national industrialisation and modernisation process, as
well as the Party’s revolutionary cause.
Given their significant role, the Party’s consistent
viewpoint is to develop agriculture and rural areas and to unceasingly improve
farmers’ living conditions, he said, adding that many important resolutions and
documents on this issue have been promulgated by the Party, including
Resolution No.26-NQ/TW and the Politburo’s conclusions in 2014 and 2019 on the
continued implementation of this resolution.

The documents of the 13th National Party
Congress earlier this year once again emphasised the issue of agriculture,
farmers, and rural areas, mentioning such critical aspects as promoting
agricultural restructuring, developing rural economy in tandem with building
new-style rural areas, and developing large-scale and modern agriculture.
They also underlined the need to encourage
ecological, organic, smart, high-tech and digital agriculture adaptive to
climate change, along with the continuation of the new-style countryside
building programme in an effective and sustainable manner.
Anh noted that the 13th-tenure Party Central
Committee is considering the review of the resolution execution and the building
of another replacing Resolution No.26-NQ/TW to submit it to the Party Central
Committee at the fifth plenum in early 2022, showing the necessity and
significance of this issue to national development in the time ahead.
He asked the steering committee and relevant
agencies and individuals to thoroughly look back on the achievements, failures,
and lessons during the resolution implementation so as to seek ways to optimise
human, natural, and social resources for agricultural, rural, and
The new resolution must open up a new era in
caring for the people, especially farmers, and agricultural and rural
development, the official added./.
