The final number of persons for the city’s Party Executive Committee for the next term will be 71. Among those, the city’s Party Steering Committee will have 17 and the city’s Party Inspection Commission will have 13.

The selection of candidates for the next Party term is pretty new, covering the examination of all legal documents, qualifications, assets declaration, and having children studying abroad, according to Vu Duc Bao, head of the city’s Party Organization Commission.

Economic targets 

Hanoi has set a series of economic targets for five years to come, including its personal capita income (PCI) ranging between US$8300 and US$8500 by 2025 an increase of 49% from the current figure.

The targets were set up at a meeting prior to the city’s Party Congress.

Accordingly, Hanoi is positioned to become one of most competitive cities in the region by 2025 to be in par with localities in the continent, and to be globally connected by 2045 with PCI set at US$8300- US$8500 US$12000-US$13000 and above US$36000 respectively.

Nguyen Van Phong, head of the city’s Commission for Propaganda, said the PCI target is set basing mainly on three categories like structure, economic growth, and population. For example, Hanoi’s population surpassed 8 million in 2019 and will reach nearly 10 million by 2025.

The city’s development for the next five years will base on three pillars namely infrastructure, regulatory framework and manpower. This will be followed by the development of information technology to build up e-administration; urban administration model-based governance with the support by the government’s specific mechanisms; and the development of digital economy and science-technology, and the inheritance of culture and people’s values.
