Under draft documents to be submitted to the 10th national congress of the Communist Party of Vietnam, party members will be allowed to run businesses, local media Tuesday January 24 quoted a senior official as saying.
The party members will be allowed to do private business without scale restrictions, Nguyen Khoa Diem, secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam Central Committee (CPVCC) and director of its Ideology and Culture Commission, said at a meeting with local reporters on Monday, according to the newspaper Pioneer.
Some local officials have recently said Vietnam would consider amendment of the Party Stature, including allowing party members to engage in the private economic sector, which contributes some 60% of Vietnam’s gross domestic product, at the 10th congress to be held in the next few months.
The CPVCC will complete draft documents to be submitted to the congress, one of which, the draft political report, will be publicised on March 2 to get recommendations from the general population, the newspaper said.
The 12th meeting of the CPVCC in July 2005 approved orientations for personnel structure of the committee in the 10th tenure. The committee’s structure must ensure the comprehensive leadership in fields, regions and important positions, as well as the presence of young officials, women, ethnic persons and people at different social classes.
