In an effort to look for a new model, it is necessary to ensure a balance of economic, social, cultural, security and environmental growth. This is the time when each country should contribute to build a culture of development in the new era. As a historical domain, development should be defined on the foundation of relations among major aspects of socio-economy, politics, culture and environment. Human development is one of the key issues of development at a time when social struggle and scientific and technological revolution bae been fervently taking place.

The renovation of Viet Nam over the past 25 years has resulted in progress in the way of thinking, awareness, and experience in development. Socio-economic development policies have been decided in respect of objective laws, concrete conditions of the country thus they conform to international practices and people’s expectation. However, besides achievements, there remain constraints and limitations that require correct, suitable and timely development model.

The 11th Congress of the Communist Party of Viet Nam highlighted a new way of thinking to renovate the model of growth focusing on in-depth development with higher quality, speed and sustainability. Sustainable development should be a cross-cutting modality. A new state of development with opportunities and challenges are lying ahead. This calls for a comprehensive and strong renovation to effectively and timely respond to the new situation and tasks./.
