Tran Tuan Anh
Member of the Politburo, Chairman, Party Central Committee’s Economic Commission
On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of Vietnam Investment Review, on behalf of the Party Central Committee’s Economic Commission, I would like to send to all leaders, reporters, editors, and other employees of VIR my warmest congratulations.
The 30-year development of VIR is associated with the country’s doi moi journey and international integration. It is a great honour and I am glad to see that VIR has made positive contributions and reflected the diversity, vividness, and achievements of the national renovation, economic reform, and press renewal.
Through each issue of VIR’s publications, it is possible to see steps, difficult periods, and developments of the economy, from central planning to a socialist-oriented and market-based economy, with the doors open for integration in general and international economic integration in particular. VIR has been doing a good job in timely conveying the Party’s guidelines on socioeconomic development to a large community of readers at home and abroad. At the same time, it has also updated the feedback from the business community, investors, and society so that the advisory agencies of the Party and the state can have more useful information in the process of making guidelines and policies. Articles and topics on developing the private economy, perfecting market economy institutions, attracting foreign direct investment, and participating in the Fourth Industrial Revolution are all helpful and valuable.
On behalf of the Party Central Committee’s Economic Commission, I highly appreciate the participation and contributions of VIR in communicating and implementing the Party’s resolutions, quickly bringing these to the country’s economic life in a practical, close, and effective manner.
The entire Party, people, and armed forces are actively carrying out the Resolution of the 13th National Party Congress in order to successfully realise the country’s strategic goals, so that Vietnam will become a developing country with modernity-oriented industry and exceeding the lower middle income level by 2025, a developing country with modern industry and high middle income by 2030, and a developed nation with high income by 2045.
In addition to advantages and opportunities, there are also many challenges ahead, especially as the pandemic is now changing many aspects of socioeconomic life. To accomplish the goals of the congress’ resolution, it requires great efforts and determination of the whole political system, businesses, and the people.
I believe that, with the sense of responsibility, solidarity, creativity, and determination of the press at large and VIR – a prestigious and experienced press office – in particular, there will continue to be more contributions to the communication work and the development of a prosperous Vietnam.
On this occasion, I would like to wish all VIR journalists further development, good health, happiness, and success.
