At the congress, the delegates participated in the discussion in a positive and democratic manner before voting for approval by majority vote.

In terms of the overseas Vietnamese community, the documents of the 13th National Party Congress affirm the interest and viewpoints of the Party and State, identifying specific tasks such as supporting overseas Vietnamese to have firm legal status, developing their economies and life, local social integration; improving the effectiveness of the citizen protection, labour and overseas students management; creating conditions for the overseas Vietnamese to preserve Vietnamese language, national cultural identity, and raise national pride; well providing information on the situation of the country, helping them look towards the homeland, have awareness and act in accordance with the interests of the nation; and adopting policies to attract resources of overseas Vietnamese to actively contribute to the cause of national construction and defense.

To implement the above targets, the Vietnamese Embassy and other diplomatic missions in Australia focus on three main tasks. The first is to focus on deepening the strategic partnership between Vietnam and Australia.

The second task is to make efforts to serve the development of the country, in which political, cultural, economic diplomacy, and work for overseas Vietnamese must all serve development goals.

The third task is to continue to pay more attention to citizen protection in the context of the increasing number of Vietnamese people studying, working, traveling and visiting relatives in Australia, but their lives being affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ambassador Nguyen Tat Thanh pledged that the Embassy and Consulates General of Vietnam in Australia are always "a common home" of the Vietnamese community, and a channel to collect ideas of overseas Vietnamese to national construction and development to transfer to responsible levels in Vietnam for consideration and settlement.
