Swedish Ambassador to Vietnam Anna Lindstedt has acknowledged the importance of the 10th National Congress of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) as “an important event for Vietnam”.
he stressed that the Party Congress, which coincides with the 20th anniversary of the renewal of the Doi Moi process, is of great significance. This she said  will be a chance for Vietnam to review the implementation of its open-door policies and that process over the past years, and at the same time, to outline the country’s future short and long-term development strategies.
Ambassador Lindstedt said that the twenty years of renewal have brought about not only economic changes but also profound social and political ones which have had a great impact on the country’s diplomatic policies, she said. Sweden has helped Vietnam during its reform process since the early 1990s and is proud of its contribution to this process.
“I believe the new leaders of Vietnam will continue to carry out the renewal process with a view to achieving the goal of a prosperous people, a strong country, and an equitable, democratic and civilized society, Lindstedt said.
The 10th National Congress of the Communist Party of Viet Nam was opened April 18 at Ba Dinh Hall in the capital Ha Noi. The Congress, attended by 1,176 delegates representing more than 3.1 million Party members, is expected to convene April 18 until April 25, 2006.
