The Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) values its relations with the Workers Party of Bangladesh (WPB) and is interested in further promoting the solidarity and partnership between the two parties, stated a CPV senior official.

Head of the CPV Central Committee’s Commission for External Relations Hoang Binh Quan made the comment while meeting with WPB President Rashed Khan Menon in Hanoi on March 16.

Vietnam appreciates the precious assistance received from the WPB and Bangladeshi people to the country in the past struggle for liberation and current national development, said Quan.

President Menon lauded the socio-economic achievements of Vietnam in recent years, especially in the shifting and challenging global context.

The accomplishments Vietnam has made over the past three decades of reform under the CPV’s leadership serve as guiding examples for communist and left-wing parties around the world, he said.

He said the WPB wishes to promote stronger relationship with the CPV, especially in information and theory exchanges. This, he held, would contribute to enhanced cooperation between the two countries, especially in legislation, tourism and civil aviation.

Earlier, the WPB President met with Nguyen Huy Tang, Deputy Head of the CPV Central Committee’s Commission for External Relations, during which both sides briefed one another on party realities and the overall socio-economic situation in their respective nations.

They also shared their experience in Party building and discussed measures to deepen ties between the two parties as well as regional and international issues of mutual concern.

During his stay in Vietnam, WPB President Rashed Khan Menon also met with leaders of the National Assembly Committee for External Relations, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and and the Ministry of Transport. He also held working sessions with leaders of the Party Committees of northern Quang Ninh province and Ho Chi Minh City.-VNA
