The 11th National Congress of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) wrapped up here on Wednesday after reaching consensus on a political report, the socio-economic development strategy in the 2011-2020 period and the amended party statute.

"The congress blew a new breath and new hope to the party and the nation. I will contribute my experience and strong belief to serve the country, the party, the people and the nation, helping create new strength to realize the goals and tasks that the 11th tenure CPV has set," newly-elected CPV Central Committee (CPVCC) General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong said at the event's Closing Ceremony.

Trong said he was fully aware of the heavy mission and big responsibilities the 11th national congress put on him. He will try his best on his capability and ethics to help reach the goal and duty of the party and nation in a new stage.

The eight-day party event attaches great importance to party construction, promotion of democracy, and intensification of fight against corruption and wastefulness, he said.

At the last working day of the congress on Wednesday morning, CPVCC member Dinh The Huynh, on behalf of the congress secretariat, presented results of delegates' voting for major issues.

Huynh said 65.04 percent of the voters agreed with the amendments of the platform for national construction in the transitional period to socialism, 80.16 percent of the voters agreed with the party's new regulation, which is mentioned in the amended statute, about the leadership of the party towards the fundamental issues of building the army and public security sectors.

The congress on Wednesday morning announced that Nguyen Phu Trong was elected CPVCC General Secretary, and the committee's Political Bureau with 14 members, the committee's Secretariat with four members, and the committee's Inspection Commission with 21 members.

The congress was attended by 1,377 party members. The CPV currently has 3.6 million members.
