Implementing the Resolution of the Party Central Committee’s 4th Plenum (11th tenure and 12th tenure) on Party building, party members in the unit have always upheld their spirit and sense of responsibility for criticism and self-criticism, frankly pointed out their weaknesses and limitations, and then developed measures to overcome. That mission has been combined with the implementation of the 12th Politburo’s Directive No.5-CT/TW, on studying and following Ho Chi Minh’s ideology, morality and lifestyle, and the Campaign of “Promoting tradition, devoting talent, deserving to be Uncle Ho’s Soldiers”, as an important measure to train party members.

As a result, its cadres, soldiers and employees have shown their firm political ideology and successfully implemented the Determined to Win Emulation movement, and other emulation movements launched by organizations and agencies which have been close to the tasks and created motivations for cadres, soldiers and employees to emulate in successfully fulfilling all their assigned work. The regulations on building seasoned unit and duty work have been strictly maintained; other regulations on working and organizing meetings, receiving ordinary people and exercising grass-roots level democracy have been well implemented, thereby making contribution to promoting democracy, internal solidarity and unity among cadres and employees.

Mass organizations and Soldiers’ Councils have promoted their role in each specific aspect of work. All cadres, soldiers and employees have strictly followed the Party’s guidelines and policy, the state’s law and the Army’s disciplines. In the last 25 years, there have been no cases of discipline violation in the department, and it has always recorded the title of a “comprehensively strong unit”.
