The Military Region 2 promotes the role of its key cadres

Key cadres at all levels within the Military Region 2’s armed forces are leaders and commanders in charge of their offices and units; they have really typical qualities, capacity and prestige, play a role of special importance, and assume responsibility for the performance of their assigned task. In the new situation, all-level party committees should attach greater importance to closely managing and promoting the role of this contingent to the utmost.

The Military Region 2 holds a position of strategic importance and has patriotic tradition in the resistance wars for national liberation and Homeland protection. It shares a 1,373-km-long border with Laos and China and has mountainous terrain, poor traffic infrastructure, and slow economic growth, while facing a lot of natural disasters. Taking advantage of those difficulties, the hostile forces have been enhancing their acts of sabotage in a bid to destabilize the political security and undermine the national great unity block and the people’s faith in the Party, State, and Military. To accomplish the assigned task, the Military Region’s Party Committee and Command have taken various synchronous, effective measures, with a focus on promoting the role of key cadres at all levels.

Being imbued with Uncle Ho’s teachings: “cadres are the roots of all work”, “Success or failure depends on good or bad cadres” and grasping the Central Military Commission’s Resolution 769-NQ/QUTW and the Plan 311/KH-CT by the General Department of Politics on “building a contingent of military cadres in the period of 2013-2020 and beyond”, the Military Region’s Party Committee has always focused on promoting the responsibility for setting examples of cadres, particularly the key ones at all levels. In the process, the all-level party committees within the Party Organization have always maintained the principles, regulations and procedures for the personnel work; all issues on this work have been decided by the party committees. At the same time, they have intensified the work of inspection, supervision, and review to draw lessons and opportunely detect and rectify partiality and individualism in the personnel work and the building of a contingent of key cadres at all levels within the Military Region’s armed forces.

To better encourage the role of key cadres, the Military Region’s Party Committee has always concentrated on consolidating this corps both qualitatively and quantitatively, while setting high criteria and requirements for each position. More specifically, cadres in charge of units must have political zeal, exemplary morality and lifestyle, scientific working method and style, deep knowledge, good capability in leading and managing the units, sufficient criteria and prestige to be elected to the party committees at their level and to the higher echelons’ party committees; most notably, they must be capable of playing the core role in achieving a sense of unity within their units, commanding, managing and operating the training work as well as building comprehensively strong units. Cadres in charge of competent offices must have a thorough grasp of the groups of units and good professional competence and capability in giving advice to commanders in each field and giving instructions to the units’ implementation of their tasks. Cadres in charge of technical offices and units must have deep knowledge and capacity to apply technology to exploiting and renovating the existing materiel and especially effectively using the new materiel.

The Military Region’s Party Committee and Command have frequently paid due attention to training and improving the all-level key cadres comprehensively so that they would have political zeal, pure morality and lifestyle, exemplary working style, and sufficient capacity and prestige to manage and lead their offices and units to successfully fulfil all assigned task. The Military Region’s Party Committee Standing Board issued the Directive 53-CT/ĐU, dated May 16th 2018, on raising the all-level key cadres’ responsibility within the Military Region’s armed forces. Under the Directive, the all-level party committees have promoted the role of key cadres in each position and encouraged them to dare to think, dare to do, and dare to take responsibility in their task performance. In the process, key cadres at all levels have regularly renewed their working style, stayed close to units and inferiors, resolutely overcome weaknesses; thereby, a huge change in their awareness, action, attitude, and responsibility towards their tasks has been made. Due regard has been paid to heightening the role model-setting responsibility of key cadres, making them capable of playing the core role in the unity within units’ party committees and commands, resolutely fighting against negative practices, opportunism, and the signs of “self-evolution” and “self-transformation”. As a result, key cadres at all levels have always raised their awareness and responsibility before the party committees and higher echelons towards their units’ task performance.

The Military Region’s Party Committee has required the all-level key cadres to set examples in performing the task, matching words with action, and building scientific, effective working method for their inferiors to follow. Thus, the all-level key cadres have heightened a sense of responsibility for self-training and self-improvement, actively studied and grasp their assigned task, strictly observed the Party’s resolutions and directives as well as regulations and procedures for work, respected the collectives and opinions of cadres and soldiers in the performance of their task. At the same time, they have exercised self-criticism and criticism, well managed the relationships between collective leadership and individual accountability, between commissars and commanders, between superiors and inferiors, and between units and local authorities, thereby contributing to building comprehensively strong offices and units, and successfully fulfilling the assigned task.

Today, the task of Military build-up and Homeland protection has new developments; the Military Region’s armed forces continue to be consolidated properly; there is a transfer between generations of cadres in general, key cadres in particular. Meanwhile, several key cadres’ capacity to deal with complex issue is limited; young cadres lack hands-on experiences, and their responsibility for work is still low. To better promote the role of all-level key cadres, the Military Region’s Party Committee and Command focus on the main measures as follows.

1. Continuing to grasp and strictly implement higher echelons’ resolutions, directives, and guiding documents on the personnel work, particularly the 10th Party Central Committee’s Conclusion 37-KL/TW on stepping up the Personnel Work Strategy towards 2020, the 11th Politburo’s Conclusion 24-KL/TW on enhancing the work of cadre planning and rotation towards 2020, the Central Military Commission’s Resolution 109-NQ/QUTW on “building a contingent of military cadres, particularly at the operational, strategic levels to meet the task requirements in the new situation”, and the Resolution 148-NQ/ĐU, dated May 3rd 2019, by the Military Region’s Party Committee on “building a contingent of the Military Region’s cadres, particularly those at the operational level and in charge of offices and units to meet the task requirements in the new situation”. Doing so will create a positive change in the awareness and responsibility of organizations and forces, particularly party committees and organizations, key cadres, political offices, and offices in charge of the personnel work towards the building of a contingent of cadres; provide the basis for directing, counselling, and developing the personnel plan in accordance with each position of key cadres within the Military Region’s armed forces.

2. Party committees at all levels should adhere to the principle of the Party’s uniformed leadership over the personnel work and management. The work of deploying, appointing, dismissing, rotating, assessing, training, rewarding, and ensuring policies for key cadres must stick to the principle of democratic centralism and the regulations in a democratic, just, objective, transparent manner. Consideration should be given to stepping up the inspection and supervision work, aligning the work of inspecting and supervising cadres with the work of inspecting and supervising party members and organizations, closely combining cadre management with party member management, and attaching the organizations’ management to each cadre’ self-management and self-improvement.

3. Frequently reviewing, adjusting, supplementing, and closely managing the plans on key cadres at all levels, ensuring the continuous, solid inheritance and development between generations of key cadres. Importance should be attached to including the young cadres who are capable of advancement or ethnic minority people in the personnel planning; priority should be given to their political qualities and capability in practical operations. Besides, due attention should be paid to actively detecting, cultivating, using good cadres in the long term as well as formulating the “flexible” and “open” personnel plan to respond to all changes in the personnel work. It is necessary to proactively appoint enough key cadres at all levels under the organizational structure to meet the units’ task requirements, particularly at the units tasked with training and combat readiness or those stationed in the key, border areas.

4. Great value should be attached to aligning cadre training with cadre use and gradually implementing the policy on deploying key cadres from the favourable places to the areas in difficulty to get more hands-on experiences. In the process, it is essential to follow the principle of democratic centralism, ensure objectivity and equality, and maintain stability. At the same time, it is important to closely cooperate with local party committees and authorities in stepping up the work of propagation to attract graduates from universities to the Military in order to supplement the human resources for the Military Region.

5. Well conducting the training work to improve quality of the contingent of key cadres comprehensively. Focuses should be placed on training them according to their position; making specific plans to deploy key cadres to attend long-term training courses; combining training at schools with in-service training. Priority should be given to deploying the key cadres in the personnel planning, the instructors of the military schools, the ethnic minority cadres, and young potential cadres for further education. The all-level party committees must strictly perform the work of cadre evaluation under the Circular 54/2017/TT-BQP by the Ministry of National Defence on the Regulations on the criteria for cadres’ positions. It is necessary to evaluate cadres specifically, comprehensively, objectively, and democratically and use cadres’ task performance as the basis for the annual evaluation. Due regard should be paid to ensuring sufficient policies and entitlements for cadres under the existing regulations, particularly for the cadres whose families are in difficulty and those who excellently fulfil their task in order to create a favourable condition for them to accomplish their assigned task.

Synchronously adopting the above-mentioned measures will help ensure that the key cadres at all levels have sufficient qualities, capability and prestige to perform their task, while contributing to the successful fulfillment of  the Military Region’s armed forces’ military-defence task in the new situation.
