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

The eight-day congress was attended by 1,377 party delegates representing 3.6 million party members.

Vietnam former Party General Secretaries, former State Presidents, former Prime Ministers, former National Assembly Chairmen and other former leaders of the country, the state and government as well as intellectuals, religious representatives and representatives of Vietnamese young people also attended the closing session of the congress.

The Congress elected a 200-member Central Committee for the 11th tenure, consisting of 175 official and 25 alternate members.

The 11th CPV Central Committee convened its first meeting and elected 14 members to the Political Bureau, four members to the Secretariat, 21 members to Inspection Commission chaired by Politburo member Ngo Van Du. Nguyen Phu Trong was elected as General Secretary of the 11th CPV Central Committee.

The congress has unanimously adopted documents of the Platform on National Construction in the Transitional Period to Socialism ( supplemented and developed in 2011), the Socio-economic Development Strategy for 2011-2020, political orientations and tasks for the five years from 2011-2015 and the Party Statute ( supplemented and revised).

"These documents are the essence of the brainpower, the will, the desire of the entire Party and people, defining the targets and tasks of the entire Party and the nation in the new period of development which are full of prospects and challenges of the country's revolution from now until 2020 and the following years," said the newly-elected General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong.

Trong said the 11th CPV Central Committee would attach great importance to party construction, promotion of democracy, and intensification of fight against corruption and wastefulness to create the fundamentals for Vietnam to become a basically modern- oriented industrial country by 2020.

As a rule, after the party congress, the Vietnamese National Assembly, will re-elect a state president, a chairman of the National Assembly, a prime minister and cabinet members during the National Assembly session this year.
