Vientiane (VNA) – Experiences by senior leaders of friendly countries, especially Vietnam, are precious lessons and also hold great importance, General Director of the Lao News Agency (KPL) Khampheuy Philapha said while talking about the Vietnamese Party leader’s recent article about the path to socialism in Vietnam.

Over the past few days, KPL publications have posted the full writing, translated into Lao and English, on some theoretical and practical issues on socialism and the path to socialism in Vietnam by General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Central Committee Nguyen Phu Trong.

In an interview with the Vietnam News Agency, Philapha said the publication of this article in the Lao language helps readers understand the theoretical and practical issues of the path to socialism in Vietnam, noting that both countries are persistent in the Marxism - Leninism, which is the theoretical foundation for their national construction and development towards socialism.

The article showed that national independence associated with socialism is the fundamental and consistent policy of the Vietnamese revolution and also the vital point of late President Ho Chi Minh’s ideology.

It also indicated that the CPV’s policies and goals, including building a political system of the people, by the people, and for the people, are the most appropriate ones, according to the KPL leader.

He expressed his delight that over the past years, Vietnam has obtained all-round achievements in developing a socialist-oriented market economy. It is a fact that during its “Doi moi” (Renewal) period, the socialist-oriented market economy in the country has gathered sufficient factors of a market economy under international standards.

He held that over 35 years of “Doi moi”, Vietnam has attained a number of important, comprehensive, and fundamental achievements in all fields, particularly in economic development, thus greatly helping to promote its role, stature and voice in the region and the world.

The implementation of the “Doi moi” policy has helped build a socialist-oriented market economy that is a modern market economy integrated into the region and the world while operating in line with the market mechanism under the State’s management via the legal system and under the CPV’s leadership for the sake of “rich people, strong nation, and democratic, equitable, and civilised society”, which is evidenced by the economic statistics cited in the article, Philapha went on.

He noted in the current development trend, countries around the world, including Vietnam, are all facing opportunities for as well as challenges to their development.

Under the CPV’s clear-sighted leadership and with the Vietnamese people’s solidarity and consensus, the country will achieve the targets set for the building of socialism imbued with the Vietnamese identity, the KPL General Director affirmed.

He also expressed his belief that the traditional relations, special solidarity, and comprehensive cooperation between Laos and Vietnam will stay strong forever./.
