The article, titled: “Achievements of 30-year reform in Vietnam,” said the sixth Congress of the Communist Party of Vietnam in 1986 played an important role in Vietnam’s development as it developed new ways of thinking about the economy and introduced a new legal system with improved regulations that met international standards. The political reform was carried out in accordance with the economic growth level, the article said, stressing new directions that focused on a stable and high economic growth, and people’s better living standards. Vietnam is one of the few countries that have successfully conducted reform and maintained their economic growth at a stable and continuous pace, according to the article. It cited Vietnam’s annual GDP growth of around 7 percent during the 30-year period, and 7.4 percent in the last decade. The newspaper quoted the UN’s assessment as saying that Vietnam is one of the countries worldwide that have taken the lead in the fight against poverty and met the requirements of the UN Millennium Development Goals. The article concluded that such achievements have proven Vietnam’s sound decision to follow the path of reform, which has created a firm socio-economic foundation for the country to continue pursuing socialism.
