HCM City (VNA) – Standing Deputy Secretary of the Ho Chi Minh City Party Committee Tat Thanh Cang on October 26 received a delegation of the Cuban Women’s Federation (FMC), now on a working visit to the Vietnamese city.

Head delegate Teresa Maria Amarelle Boue, Politburo member of the Communist Party of Cuba and Secretary General of the FMC, affirmed that her country always wants to enhance the traditional solidarity and friendship with Vietnam so as to benefit the people of each country.

Noting the outcomes of the delegation’s working visit in HCM City, she said they were very impressed with the local child care model for low-income earners as well as vocational training and career guidance activities of the HCM City Women’s Cultural House. They consider these as precious experiences for Cuba.

Welcoming the Cuban guests, Cang expressed his hope that the FMC and the HCM City Women’s Union would effectively share experience in women-related work and help strengthen cooperation between Vietnamese and Cuban women.

He also appreciated the Cuban people’s wholehearted support for Vietnam during the fight for national independence and reunification in the past. He added Cuba leader Fidel Castro’s braving of dangers to visit the newly liberated area in Quang Tri 45 years ago reflected the Cuban people’s special solidarity with Vietnam.

The Vietnamese people will forever keep in mind this solidarity and always want to develop the time-tested relations with their Cuban peers, the official noted.

Earlier the same day, the FMC delegation visited the historical relic site of Cu Chi Tunnels, some private child care centres and the HCM City Women’s Cultural House.-VNA
