Moscow (VNA) – The newspaper “Pravda” (Truth) of Russian The Federation Communist Party has highlighted publication of one delivered by the General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Nguyen Phu Trong, which collects 29 articles and speeches by the leader of the Vietnamese Party over the period 2019-2021.

In an article published on February 16, the newspaper said that the book “Several theoretical and practical questions on socialism and the road to socialism in Vietnam”, addressed one of the most common and controversial questions, concerning what is socialism, why Vietnam chose the path of socialism, and what the country should do to build socialism.

The article notes that the VCP leader said that Vietnam aims for a society for the people, which does not exploit people or undermine dignity for profit.

He said the development of socialism in Vietnam is currently characterized by a market-oriented Doi Moi direction, international integration and multilateral diplomacy. The market economy in Vietnam operates according to the rules of the market but under the direction of a socialist rule of law. Now in a period of transition, the Vietnamese economy is not a capitalist market economy and not a full socialist market economy either.

According to the article, the leader of the Vietnamese Party believes that free-market capitalism cannot solve all problems, and in many cases it can seriously harm poor countries, and aggravates the contradiction between the proletariat and the bourgeoisie in worldwide. Today’s freedom and democracy have not been able to ensure that real power belongs to the people and works for their interests.

The article states that the book highlights the tasks of the CPV and the Vietnamese people on the road to building socialism, focusing on accelerating industrialization and modernization based on the knowledge economy, developing socialist-oriented market economy, promoting cultural and human development, improving living standards, ensuring social progress and justice, protecting national defense-security.

He described the book as vivid proof of the earnest work that the CPV is constantly carrying out to define the goals and tasks of Vietnamese communists and the whole nation on the road to socialism./.
