• Vietnam leadership to be chosen at January meeting


    HANOI: Vietnam’s new leadership will be chosen at a Communist Party Congress in January, an official statement said late Monday, as the country struggles with economic reform and strained relations with its biggest trade partner and neighbor China. The key meeting, held every five years, determines who will be president and prime minister and sets the country’s policy direction. “The 12th national party congress will officially open on January 21 and ends on January 28th in Hanoi,” the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) said in a statement.    AFP
