Hanoi (VNA) – Politburo member and head of the Communist Party of Vietnam Central Committee’s Economic Commission Nguyen Van Binh has said that the Vietnamese Party and State attach great importance to maintaining its friendly neighbourliness and comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership with China. 

During a reception in Hanoi on November 29 for Secretary of the Party Committee of Hunan province Du Jiahao, Binh wished that both sides would seriously realise the common perceptions of their senior leaders and increase exchanges to improve the efficiency of cooperation in diverse areas. 

He wished that Hunan and Vietnamese localities would facilitate the sharing of experience in Party building, socio-economic development, and economic and trade collaboration, contributing to the healthy, stable, and effective development of Vietnam-China relations. 

Du, for his part, expressed his belief that under the leadership of the Communist Party of Vietnam, the Vietnamese people would surely accomplish tasks set by the 12th National Party Congress. 

He affirmed that the Chinese Party, Government, and people are willing to further foster the comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership with Vietnam, adding that China pledges to continue facilitating high-level exchanges and meetings, strengthen political trust, and promote strategic connectivity with Vietnam. 

Hunan stands ready to step up practical and mutually-beneficial cooperation with Vietnamese localities in the fields of economy, trade, investment, education, and tourism, thus laying a solid foundation for the friendship between the two parties, nations and people of China and Vietnam. 

The same day, Vice Secretary of the Party Committee and Chairman of the People’s Committee of Hanoi Nguyen Duc Chung held talks with the Chinese guest. 

The two sides informed each other about their respective party and national situations, and discussed ways to nurture ties between Hanoi and Hunan in the near future.–VNA
