Over recent years, the Politburo and the Secretariat have opened five training courses to foster those 227 candidates submitted by the Central Personnel Committee.

The eligible authorized agencies and localities include the Central Organization Commission, the Central Inspection Commission, the Central Commission for Internal Affairs, the Public Security’s Party Committee, Hanoi’s Party Committee and Ho Chi Minh City’s Party Committee.


The plenum will last through October 10.
