Chemical Corps builds a contingent of cadres on a par with the mission

Grasping the Resolution of the Party Central Committee’s 7th Plenum (12th tenure) on the personnel work, the Chemical Corps’ Party Committee has determined that building a pool of cadres on a par with their mission is a determinant to building pure, strong Party Committee and comprehensively strong Chemical Corps, successfully fulfilling the assigned task.

Over the past years, the Chemical Corps has been provided with modern equipment; its barracks have been made regular, spacious, and beautiful; cadres and troops’ life has gradually improved. However, it has been confronted with a lot of difficulties. Its units are scattered. The task of clearing residual chemicals is demanding. Technical equipment has degenerated. Budget and materials are limited. The working environment is poisonous and dangerous. Those elements have directly impacted on troops’ thought, sentiment, mentality and health. Perceiving that, the Corps’ Party Committee and High Command have actively taken measures for leadership and direction with a focus on building a contingent of cadres with sufficient qualities and capabilities as the core in performing the task.

Fully aware of the role and importance of the contingent of cadres, particularly since the issuance of the Resolution of the Party Central Committee’s 3rd Plenum (8th tenure) on “the strategy on cadres in the era of accelerating national industrialization and modernization”, the Corps’ Party Committee has directed party committees and organizations to enhance the work of cadre management and education and the building of cadres at all levels. Also, they have been asked to consolidate and supplement the contingent of cadres quantitatively, particularly those at detachment level, to recommend higher echelons to deploy cadres to its units, recruit civilian cadres, and select good professional servicemen for several positions. Due attention has been paid to the work of cadre evaluation on a just, objective, honest basis to create the unity among cadres. During the process of cadre training, there have been various training programs and forms in accordance with each group of cadres. On-service training has been combined with training at schools both inside and outside the Military, overseas training, and refresher courses for new cadres. The Chemistry Officer College has actively renewed the training contents and curriculum, improved the training quality, and strictly implemented the Project to consolidate and develop the teaching staff until 2020 and beyond, meeting the training requirements of the Corps and the Military. The personnel work has been stringently conducted at 3 age groups, ensuring the continuous inheritance, quality and feasibility. Party committees have fearlessly included young cadres with good qualities and capabilities in the personnel planning to appoint them to hold commanding and managerial positions. As a result, up to now, the Corps has had a contingent of cadres with sufficient quantity and good quality. The number of cadres holding bachelor’s degree and postgraduate degree has been increased. Many of them have become really examples in political ideology, morality, lifestyle, and working method in accordance with the Corps’ particularities.

At present, the Corps continues to be made “compact and strong” and tasked with the increasingly demanding, difficult and complex missions, especially environment-related ones. Meanwhile, the Corps is confronted with personnel-related issues, such as the non-increase in manpower, the shortage of detachment-level cadres, the gradual decrease in experienced, veteran, top experts, the inexperience of young cadres, and limited capability, prestige and responsibility of a section of cadres. Thus, to build a contingent of cadres on a par with the mission under the spirit of the Resolution of the Party Central Committee’s 7th Plenum (12th tenure), in the coming time, the Corps’s Party Committee will focus on the main measures as follows.

First, to enhance leadership and direction, promote the role of personnel offices and cadres in charge of the personnel work. Party committees should grasp and follow the principle in which the party committee uniformly leads the personnel work and manage its cadres under any circumstances. Party committees should also grasp higher echelons’ resolutions, directives and guidance, particularly the Central Military Commission’s Resolution 769-NQ/QUTW on “building a contingent of military cadres in the 2013-2020 period and beyond”, the Corps’ Party Committee’s Resolution on “leading the personnel work and building the Corps’ contingent of cadres in the 2011-2015 period and beyond”. Grounded on those documents, each unit must adhere to its particularities and the requirements for cadres in the new situation to formulate proper measures. Besides, it is necessary to review and supplement the regulations on leading the personnel work at all levels, clearly identify the responsibility and authority between the party committee and the commander, and between the secretary and the commander towards the personnel work; to manage cadres within the competence on a strict, close, procedural basis. Moreover, the Corps’ Party Committee should pay due regard to building and consolidating the personnel office both qualitatively and quantitatively so that it could well perform its role in counselling the personnel work and the building of cadres. Great value should be attached to improving political zeal, morality, lifestyle, responsibility, capability and working method of cadres in charge of the personnel work, ensuring that they are really highly responsible, exemplary and honest in their work. At the same time, it is essential to improve the professional competence of party committee members and cadres in charge of the personnel work to achieve the unity within the Corps.

Second, to successfully carry out the work of personnel planning, deployment, appointment and arrangement in a scientific, proper manner. Party committees should actively develop the plan for personnel adjustment and supplementation under the “flexible and open” motto. Due attention should be paid to preparing human resources for the next generations of leaders and commanders in line with the party committees in the 2020-2025tenure; to bravely including young cadres with good qualities and capabilities in the personnel planning; to overcoming the discontinuity in generations of cadres, particularly key ones. The process of personnel deployment, appointment and rotation must be aligned with the improved quality and effectiveness of field operations among schools, offices and units. At the same time, it is important to well conduct the work of cadre re-appointment to ensure prestige and quality at all levels; to proactively prevent and fight against negative phenomena, bribery for jobs, factionalism, partiality, and group interest in the personnel work; to resolutely dismiss cadres who fail to fulfil the task and show weaknesses in capability, morality and prestige.

Third, to synchronously employ all formats of education to improve the quality of cadres comprehensively. The Corps should continue to complete the training program in cooperation with academies and schools under the preset objectives, avoiding the coincidence of training contents between training levels and degrees. The work of selecting cadres for further education must help both improve the professional competence and satisfy the goal of the personnel planning. At the same time, consideration should be given to selecting and dispatching young cadres with great potential and scientific-technological cadres to study at schools inside and outside the Military and abroad in order to prepare the resources of top experts for the Corps, particularly in the fields of research, teaching and high technology. Moreover, it is necessary to select and dispatch cadres who experienced the positions of platoon or company commanders or staff, logistics, technical cadres who have capability in the party and political work for further education and training to be in charge of the political work. The Corps’ Party Committee should direct the Chemistry Officer College to renew and complete the curriculum, particularly to improve the quality of training cadres and cadets on foreign languages and information technology; to combine cadre training with cadre use. In addition to, it is important to grasp the Central Military Commission’s Resolution 86-NQ/ĐUQSTW, dated March 29th 2007, on training and education in the new situation. By 2020, the Corps strives to have 97% of its cadres holding bachelor’s degree, 20%-50% of them will hold postgraduate degree; its cadres will have a good command of foreign languages and information technology while the Corps will have top experts in science and technology.

Fourth, to correctly assess cadres as the basis for cadre appointment and arrangement. Party committees should fully understand and heighten their responsibility for personnel evaluation; renew the method for personnel evaluation on an objective, democratic, open, equal and comprehensive basis. Personnel evaluation must include qualities, capability, and prestige while the task performance of the unit and individual must be seen as an important criterion for the personnel evaluation. Party committees should align cadre evaluation with party member assessment to remove general, inconsistent evaluation. Besides, it is vital to strengthen inspection and supervision, promote the role of party committees, commanders and competent offices in assessing cadres; to take the results of implementing the Resolution of the Party Central Committee’s 4th Plenum (12th tenure) on the Party building and rectification and the 12th Politburo’s Directive 05-CT/TW on studying and following Ho Chi Minh’s thought, morality and lifestyle as the basis for annual cadre evaluation. At the same time, it is essential to adopt measures to handle weaknesses of cadres; to strictly implement the Central Military Commission’s Regulations 646-QĐ/QUTW on cadres’ responsibility to set up examples, thereby making a huge change in cadres’ self-improvement, particularly key cadres at all levels.

Grasping and synchronously taking the above-mentioned measures will contribute to building the Corps’ contingent of cadres on a par with their mission, making the Corps “compact and strong” and successfully fulfil the assigned task.
