He underlined the need to be proactive and sensitive, improve the research and forecast capacity, perform well the strategic consultation related to military and national defense, and take appropriate and effective measures to handle situations, especially those to early prevent risks of war and conflicts, and to address border and island issues. 

The leader ordered the whole army to be aware of and strictly implement the policy on national defense, improve the effectiveness and efficiency of State management of national defense at all levels, and strengthen the whole-people defense. 

He asked for closer coordination between the military and ministries, sectors and localities to effectively implement strategies, plans, military and defense legal systems; and uphold the core role of army corps and economic - defense corps in socio-economic development in strategic areas along the land border line, sea and island areas, thus contributing to building a strong national defense posture and firmly defending national sovereignty over territory, borders, sea and islands.

The army must strictly maintain combat readiness; firmly manage and protect the airspace, sea, border, inland, and cyberspace; effectively respond to non-traditional security challenges and high-tech war; and improve the quality of training, drills, and scientific research, he said.

Regarding the implementation of Resolution No. 05-NQ/TW of the Politburo on the organization of the Vietnam People's Army in the 2021-2030 period, General Secretary Trong said the process must be tight, resolute, and persistent with an appropriate roadmap because this is an important issue related to the ideological and policy work. 

He also underlined the necessity to promote the application of achievements of the 4th Industrial Revolution and develop a modern defense industry towards becoming a spearhead of the national industry.

The Party chief also requested greater attention to Party building in the military, strongly innovating the leadership method, strictly implementing the Party's principles on organization and operation, and strengthening the Party’s absolute and direct leadership in all aspects over the army.-(VNA/VLLF)
