The guest also spoke highly of the socio-economic development achievements Vietnam has reaped over the past time as well as the country’s position in the region and the world at large.

For his part, Anh applauded the two Parties’ signing of a cooperation agreement, considering it an important foundation for them to deepen their cooperation in the time ahead.

He expressed his belief that with the Government’s efforts and the support of political parties, including the MIU Party, the Dominican people will harvest great socio-economic development achievements, contributing to improving the country’s position in Latin America and the world.
