A delegation from the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Communications and Education led by Deputy Standing Head Vu Ngoc Hoang had a working session with the Communist Party of Italy (CPI) in Rome on July 13.

Hoang thanked Italy’s left-wing movement and the CPI for their support for Vietnam’s previous struggles for national liberation and reunification as well as for the current process of national construction and development.

He said one of the important lessons the Communist Party of Vietnam has learnt is listening to public opinions to improve performance.

The Party official also expressed his conviction that the CPI will spare no efforts in fulfilling its huge responsibility as a vanguard party and a political fulcrum of the Italian working people.

For his part, CPI Central Committee Secretary Maurizio Musolino applauded Vietnam’s tremendous achievements during the three decades of “doi moi” (reform) process, which he said is the most vivid evidence of efforts and power of a nation led by the Communist Party.

The two sides discussed theoretical issues related to the practical development of the Communist Party of Vietnam and the CPI as well as the advantages and disadvantages for leftist movements in Italy.

The CPI leader said the objectives of the CPI are to protect the rights of labourers, preserve culture and develop society.

At the session, both sides also shared experience in promoting cultural and educational development abroad in the context of international integration and dealing with the challenges presented by market economic conditions.

Musolino also expressed his wish that the two parties would continue to cooperate closely by intensifying the exchange of lessons drawn from the development process.-VNA
