Abstract Twenty years after the beginning of the Doi moi reform (of 1986) in April 2006 the 10th National Congress of the CPV took place, revised the implementation of the 2001-2006 socio-economic plan as well as twenty years of Doi moi, decided on the tasks of the development in the 2006-2010 period, and elected the new leadership by approving 160 members of the CC as well as 14 members of the Politbureau and by reelecting Nong Duc Manh as General Secretary of the CPVCC. The result was disappointing: It is true, on the one hand, that Vietnam is dominated by market economy and by private enterprises; but the leadership continues to be entrusted to the leninist Trinity of local party secretaries, ministerial personal, and CPV-cadres. There is not any private businessman to have been elected for leadership. Externally at least the party is keeping its unflexible leninistic façade. Whether it will internally shift from orthodoxy to a new flexibility - matching the progress of market economy - is a question not to be answered by the Congress.
