Continue to innovate and improve the quality and efficiency of the emulation and commendation work in the Army

Thoroughly grasping and implementing Directive No.34-CT/TW issued on April 7th, 2014 by the Politburo (the 11th Tenure) on “Continuing to renovate the emulation and commendation work”, the emulation and commendation work in the Army has always been comprehensively, synchronously deployed, innovated, and extensively developed to create great motivation for cadres and soldiers to overcome difficulties and challenges and strive to successfully complete the assigned tasks. Promoting their achievements, agencies and units continue to renovate and improve the quality and efficiency of this important work to meet the requirements and tasks of building the Army and protecting the Fatherland in the new situation.

Thoroughly grasping the views and resolutions of the Party and Ho Chi Minh thought on emulation and commendation, especially Directive No.34-CT/TW issued by the Politburo (the Tenure 11th), the Central Military Commission Standing Committee issued Directive No.507-CT/QUTW on July 28th, 2014 on “Continuing to renovate the emulation and commendation work in the Vietnam People's Army”. On that basis, the Ministry of Defense and the Political General Department have led and directed the issuance of directives, circulars, and instructions as a basis for leading, directing, and organizing the implementation to ensure the timeliness, synchronization, and unity throughout the Army. Party committees and organizations at all levels have led and concretized the guidelines and measures in the resolutions on leading the implementation of annual, quarterly, and monthly tasks in an appropriate and effective manner. All levels have performed well the work of consolidation and issuance of regulations, plans, and instructions on the implementation of emulation, commendation, and Determination-to-Win Emulation movements to closely match the characteristics and tasks of each agency and unit. At the same time, the propaganda work has been promoted to raise awareness and sense of responsibility of cadres and soldiers on the emulation and commendation work, and the responsibilities of the Party committees, political commissars, politicians, and commanders and the advisory role of the functional agencies and emulation and commendation councils at all levels have been highly appreciated. Besides, the inspection, reviewing, and summarizing regimes have been also strictly maintained. Through the emulation movement, cadres and soldiers have been trained to have firm political stuff, not being afraid of hardships and sacrifices and typically pioneering in the implementation of the 4th Central Resolution (the 12th Tenure), Directive No.05-CT/TW of the Politburo (the 12th Tenure), and the manifestations of degradation of political thought, ethics, lifestyle, “self-evolution”, and “self-transformation” internally have been effectively prevented. In any circumstance, officers and soldiers have always believed, had absolute loyalty to the leadership of the Party, and been ready to accept and fulfill their tasks to be a key force, leading in the prevention of natural disasters, incidents, search and rescue, and assistance of people in poverty reduction. Thereby, it has been contributing to firmly protecting the independence, sovereignty, unity, and territorial integrity of the Fatherland, protecting the Party, the State, the People and the socialist regime, and maintaining a peaceful environment for the development of the country.

In the coming years, the situation of the world and the region, especially the situation of sovereignty disputes in the East Sea, will be complicated and difficult to forecast. The hostile forces will step up the activities of “peaceful evolution” and promote “self-evolution”, “self-transformation” internally, and “politicization” of the Army, especially before, during, and after the 13th National Party Congress. The task of protecting the Fatherland raises increasingly high requirements. The Army is in the process of adjusting the force organization, structure and innovation and reorganization of enterprises. Meanwhile, the negative impacts and social evils have been affecting the thought and life of a part of officers, soldiers, workers, etc. This situation poses and requires further innovation and improvement of the quality and efficiency of emulation, commendation, and Determination-to-Win Emulation movement. It is also required to stick to the situation of tasks to encourage and motivate officers and soldiers to overcome difficulties and successfully fulfill all assigned tasks, of which, the implementation of a number of following contents and solutions should be focused on:

Firstly, to continue to thoroughly grasp the resolutions and directives of the Party, the Central Military Commission, the Ministry of Defense, and the Political General Department on emulation and commendation work. Agencies and units, first of all the Party committees, leaders, and commanders at all levels, should continue to thoroughly grasp and effectively implement the Politburo's Directive No.34-CT/TW (the 11th Tenure) on “Continuing to renovate the emulation and commendation work”; Directive No.507-CT/QUTW issued on July 28th, 2014 by the Central Military Commission Standing Committee on “Continuing to renovate the emulation and commendation work in the Vietnam People's Army”; Plan No.510/KH-CT issued on April 22nd, 2011 by the Political General Department on “Building and multiplying the advanced samples in the Army”; and Plan No.471/KH-CT issued on March 27th, 2017 by the Political General Department on “Propaganda of emulation movements, advanced examples, new models, and new elements in the implementation of military and defense tasks”,… ensuring that the emulation and commendation work is implemented in the right direction and brings about practical results. Thereby, it will make the emulation and commendation work truly become measures of the Party and political work and art of advocacy and organization of revolutionary action movement, promoting the overall power of organizations and forces in well fulfilling the assigned tasks; building a revolutionary, regular, elite, and gradually modernized People's Army; and building a strong all-people defense to firmly protect the Socialist Fatherland.

Secondly, to strengthen the leadership of the Party committees and organizations in the emulation and commendation work and the Determination-to-Win Emulation movement - a decisive factor to the quality and effectiveness of the work. In order to well implement, the Party committees and organizations at all levels should base on the superiors’ directives and plans on emulation and the characteristics and tasks of the units to develop guidelines, contents, and measures to lead the emulation movements in a proper manner. It is essential to promote the sense of responsibility of cadres and party members, especially political commissars, politicians, and commanders at all levels in leading, directing, and organizing the implementation and taking responsibility for the quality and efficiency of the emulation and commendation work; having scientific methods and manners of work, “speaking in parallel with doing”, leading, and being exemplary in implementation; and closely coordinating with organizations and forces in organizing emulation movements at the units.

Thirdly, to actively innovate the contents, forms, and methods of organizing emulation movements. Regarding the contents, the Determination-to-Win Emulation movement should be directed to the grassroots level, adhered to political tasks, and focused on hard and new work and overcome weak stages and aspects to identify appropriate emulation contents and targets, close to the actual situation of implementation of defense and military tasks, contributing to promoting the fulfillment of common tasks of agencies, units, and the entire Army. The Determination-to-Win Emulation movement should be attached to other movements and drives, especially the Politburo's Directive No.05-CT/TW (the 12th Tenure), the Drive entitled “Promoting tradition and dedicating talents to be worthy of Uncle Ho's Soldiers”, the 4th Central Resolution (the 12th Tenure) on building and reorganizing the Party, etc. At the same time, it is required to well perform the work of inspection, reviewing, summarizing, and result reporting to make the emulation movement become a sweeping and revolutionary action movement, encouraging and motivating officers and soldiers to successfully fulfill the assigned tasks.

Fourthly, to well implement the work of building, fostering, and multiplying advanced samples. This is a key task in innovation of the emulation and commendation work. In order to well implement this content, leaders and commanders at all levels should closely monitor the movements, carefully study the experience and achievements of each collective and individual, and, through the implementation of difficult and complex tasks, detect and facilitate early emergence of advanced samples. It is necessary to attach importance to fostering advanced examples from an early stage to perfect themselves and become models for the whole unit to learn and follow, especially in terms of quality, competency, motivation of emulation, awareness, sense of responsibility, and preservation and promotion of effects at all times; have the sense of solidarity, mutual assistance, and striving to achieve common goals; and resolutely overcome the thought of satisfying, stopping, and lacking of the sense of striving for self-improvement, self-conceit or collective detachment, etc. Special attention should be paid to well implementing the reviewing, summarizing, and propagating work to multiply advanced samples - a weak stage in the recent time. In order to do this, agencies and units need to well organize the study of advanced examples in a creative manner, without stereotypes and bureaucracy.

Finally, to continue to renovate the commendation work to ensure accuracy, timeliness, democracy, strictness, proper subjects, and compliance with the standards, processes, procedures, and profiles. In order to well implement this content, all levels need to continue to promote the work of propaganda, education, and dissemination, grasp and strictly implement the policies of the Party, Central Military Commission, and Ministry of Defense, policies, and laws of the State to ensure the commendation work is implemented strictly, democratically, publicly, and in accordance with the principles and achievements. Attention should be paid to commendation of small collectives and individuals who directly implement the tasks; collectives and individuals with outstanding achievements in the implementation of tasks of training, combat readiness, combat, prevention of natural disasters, and search and rescue; and those who implement the tasks of defense foreign affairs.

Emulation and commendation are important contents of the Party and political work, contributing to creating a great spiritual motivation in implementing the tasks of agencies and units throughout the Army. Therefore, the Party committees, Party organizations, political commissars, politicians, and commanders at all levels should regularly pay attention to leading and directing the renovation and improvement of the quality and effectiveness of the work and the Determination-to-Wind Emulation movement in order to encourage and motivate cadres and soldiers to overcome all difficulties and challenges to successfully complete all assigned tasks.
