The year 2020 is of significant importance as it is the final year of the Government’s current tenure and the last year of the implementation of the five-year socio-economic development plan (2016-2020). It is also the year to prepare for the next five-year development plan (2021-2025) and for the 10-year development strategy (2021-2030). In addition, it is also eventful year as the country will celebrate 90th founding anniversary of the Communist Party of Viet Nam, 75th founding anniversary of the Democratic Republic of Viet Nam, now the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam, 130th birthday anniversary of President Ho Chi Minh, 90th anniversary of the tradition day of the Viet Nam Fatherlands Front; organize Party congresses at all levels, the 13th National Party Congress, and elections for the local-level People’s Council and the 15th National Assembly.
