It is based on these achievements that the Plenum has set out the Party’s objectives and tasks for the period between 2010 and 2011.
The Plenum clearly sees challenging issues that the Cambodian People’s Party has to stand for solutions such as driving to regain high economic growth, to continue to alleviate poverty among the poor, while improving the people’s wellbeing, to strengthen good governance and fight against corruption, to prevent trouble-making actions by a small number of officials, which could have impacts on national and people’s interest. The Plenum also thoughtfully reviews actions by the oppositions and ill-will circles that are countering to democratic principles, rules of law and national sovereignty aimed at creating instability in the society as well as impeding the flow of Cambodian progress, while belittling popularity of the Royal Government and the Cambodian People’s Party.
In line with this, Cambodia is to confront with unrelenting hostility provoked by history-misled Thai politicians and military, who are nurturing ambitions always for the Cambodian territorial integrity, while setting up obstacles for the Cambodians to develop their fatherland. It is on this note that the Plenum clearly shows the CPP’s position in continuing to adhere to the policy of great solidarity with an aim to gather forces from all political tendencies, strata and circles for the defense of national achievements and gaining further successes in serving our nation.

However, there would be no obstacle or difficulty as such that the Cambodian People’s Party could not overcome and resolve. The Party has overcome uncountable difficulties, big or small, and ascertained political maturity with plenty of experiences in national leadership, while always maintaining its leads in strength and winning. The Party has a correct political line, a firm organizational structure in all local communities, whereas gathering millions of members, and attained many officials who have strong internal solidarity and unity, and last but not least the wide ranging support from the people. In addition to that the Cambodian People’s Party benefits from wise leaders - Samdech Akka Moha Thmma Pothisal Chea Sim, Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen, and Samdech Akka Moha Chakrei Heng Samrin. These are unyielding factors of successes of the Party for upcoming periods.
