HCMC - New secretary of the HCMC Party Committee Dinh La Thang has pledged to do all he could to turn the city into a modern one with rapid yet sustainable growth and higher quality of life.

The Politburo member made this promise at a ceremony held earlier this month to announce the Politburo’s decision picking him as new secretary of the HCMC Party Committee. The former minister of transport said he is committed to fulfilling a key task for the growth target and expected to get constructive comments and support to get the job done.

He acknowledged that assuming the post of Party secretary of an economic, cultural, educational and scientific center like HCMC would be difficult. 

Speaking at the ceremony, former Party chief of HCMC Le Thanh Hai congratulated Thang on his new job, saying he could successfully implement the HCMC Party Committee’s resolution on improving the quality of life, and stepping up the city’s growth and contributions to the country.

Briefing diplomatic corps on HCMC’s development orientations in the coming years at a meeting in early February, the city’s chairman Nguyen Thanh Phong said the local government will exert effort to develop HCMC into an economic, financial, scientific and technological center in Southeast Asia and a modern city with the higher quality of life.

The city has launched seven breakthrough programs for developing human resources, reforming administrative procedures, boosting growth quality, improving competitiveness, reducing traffic congestion and flooding, and improving the cityscape.  

Under the Politburo’s decision, Thang, 56, will serve as HCMC party chief in the 2015-2020 term.

Before he served as minister of transport in August 2011, Thang was chairman of Vietnam National Oil and Gas Group.
