Mexico City (VNA) - Mexico’s Labour Party (PT) chief said the Doi Moi (Renewal) process, initiated in 1986, was a wise decision of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV), which helped turn Vietnam from a food importer into one of the world's largest exporters in numerous goods.

In an interview granted to the Vietnam News Agency in Mexico on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the establishment of relations between the CPV and the PT (November 25), the PT’s National Coordinator Alberto Anaya Gutierrez highlighted Vietnam’s high economic growth rate of over six percent for many years.

He said Vietnam’s hosting of the recent successful APEC 2017 Economic Leaders' Week demonstrated the progress and prosperity of Vietnam, as well as the increasingly high role and position of Vietnam in the international arena. 

Alberto Anaya expressed his delight at the traditional friendship and cooperation between the PT and the CPV over the past two decades, which contributed to ties between the two governments and mutual understanding between the two peoples.

He emphasised the results of the cooperation between the two parties, including the establishment of three acupuncture centres in Mexico with the help of Vietnam's Central Acupuncture Hospital, the partnerships in human resource training, printing, and experience exchange in agriculture sector.

Vietnam and Mexico need to continue promoting all-around relations, he said.-VNA
