The 13th National Congress of the Communist Party of Vietnam was a very successful event. In order to prepare optimal conditions for the people to welcome the upcoming 2021 Lunar New Year holiday in a healthy, safe and economical manner, as well as create an exciting atmosphere from the first days of implementing the Resolution of the 13th National Party Congress and the resolutions of Party Congresses at all levels, Permanent members of the Party Central Committee’s Secretariat have asked Party Committees in provinces and cities across the country to soon disseminate, thoroughly grasp and organise the implementation of the Resolution of the 13th National Party Congress, in the immediate future, and to focus in particular on performing the following tasks well:

1. Focus intently on COVID-19 epidemic prevention and control under the direction of the Permanent members of the Party Central Committee’s Secretariat, the Prime Minister’s instructions and all related dispatches.

2. Continue to thoroughly grasp and strictly implement Directive No.48-CT/TW, dated December 9, 2020 of the Secretariat on the organisation of the 2021 Lunar New Year (Tet) holiday, as well as all dispatches and directions of the Prime Minister on ensuring political security, social order and safety during the Tet holiday; preparing optimal conditions for people to enjoy the Spring festival and celebrate Tet; taking good care of the people’s material and spiritual life during Tet, ensuring every family can enjoy the Spring festival; and in particular, taking care of policy beneficiaries, people with meritorious services to the revolution, people in difficult circumstances, ethnic minority people in remote and far-flung areas and regions hit by natural disasters or epidemics.

3. Localities should consider the necessity for fireworks displays, strictly comply with regulations on epidemic prevention and control and perhaps save resources to care for needy people and policy beneficiaries and the anti-epidemic work.

4. Public vehicles are prohibited to go to festivals during working hours (unless assigned by the competent authorities in some special circumstances).
