The release of the book is part of activities to celebrate the 93rd founding anniversary of the CPV (February 3) and the 10th anniversary of the establishment of the Central Steering Committee for Prevention and Control of Corruption and Negative Phenomena (February 1), VietnamPlus reported.
Jointly published by the CPV Central Committee’s Commission for Internal Affairs and the Su That (Truth) National Political Publishing House, the book presents directions of comrade Nguyen Phu Trong as the Party leader and head of the steering committee in a systematic manner, and demonstrates the Party’s consistent ideology on the prevention and control of corruption and negative phenomena, Party building and rectification, and the improvement of morality and lifestyle of officials and Party members.
With nearly 100 photos, the 600-page book comprises three parts presented in a modern press style.
The first part focuses on issues drawn from the fight against corruption and negative phenomena in Vietnam, featuring the Party chief’s article reviewing the combat since the establishment of the steering committee in 2013, along with his closing remarks made at national conferences on the fight in 2014, 2018, 2020 and 2022, and 36 meetings of the steering committee.

Relevant agencies, especially the Office of the General Secretary, National Assembly’s library, Hanoi Party Committee’s Office, Vietnam News Agency, Communist Review, and Hanoi University of Social Sciences and Humanities, have coordinated and provided a lot of valuable documents and images about activities of the steering committee in the last decade, and photos on activities of comrade Nguyen Phu Trong since he was a student; and articles by the General Secretary when he worked as an editor of the Communist Review half a century ago, Hoc said.
