HANOI -- Thursday's selection of Nguyen Xuan Phuc as the country's new prime minister will likely mark a return to collective decision-making at the top, breaking from the more independent governing style of his predecessor.

     Phuc pledged to protect Vietnam's independence, unity, sovereignty and territorial integrity. He stressed plans to reform the economy and root out corruption. His term runs until 2020.
