More than 10,000 samples for the second COVID-19 testing of delegates to and personnel serving the 13th National Party Congress turned out negative for the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. According to regulations, all delegates to and personnel serving the event must undergo two tests: the first conducted within seven days prior to the congress and the second within one or two days. Both tests of the more than 10,000 people showed negative results.

The COVID-19 testing aims to ensure a safe environment for the 13th National Party Congress, scheduled to take place in Hanoi from January 25 to February 2.

Amid the pandemic’s complex developments around the world, the Ministry of Health recommended all anti-COVID-19 measures be complied with to ensure safety for the congress and the Lunar New Year holiday.

German research institutes hail Vietnam’s achievements

Major German research institutes and foundations have spoken highly of Vietnam's efforts in fighting COVID-19 and boosting economic development on the threshold of the 13th National Party Congress, and highlighted priorities of the country’s leaders in the next five years.

In an article published on the website of Hanns Seidel Foundation, which is among the leading political research foundations in Germany, author Magdalena Knödler noted that the 13th National Party Congress, one of the most important political events of the country, will be slated for late January in Hanoi.

Knödler remarked that 2020 was a difficult year for Vietnam. However, the country well performed the dual roles of the Chair of the Association of the Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, thereby enhancing its influence in the region. The ratification of the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) and elevation of the EU-ASEAN relations to a strategic partnership also took place in the year. According to the article, regional and international integration will continue to define Vietnam’s external relation policy.

Vietnam is becoming more attractive in the region and the world as business partners are welcomed, while the country has a stable political background and favorable investment conditions, the report underlined, citing the signing of the EVFTA and the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) agreement.
