Hanoi (VNA) – Exchanges of female members between the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) and the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) of Japan will create a new channel of cooperation for the Vietnam-Japan strategic partnership, said Truong Thi Mai, Head of the CPV Central Committee’s Commission on Mass Mobilisation, on July 11.

She made the statement while hosting a reception for a delegation of LDP female members led by Tsuchiya Shinako, head of the Party’s Committee for the Development of Women.

Mai voiced her delight towards the solid and comprehensive development of Vietnam and Japan in terms of political parties, governmental and parliamentary channels, along with people-to-people exchanges. She also highly valued the efforts of Tsuchiya and LDP female members to promote bilateral ties and the relations between the two Parties in particular.

She suggested the two sides strengthen exchange activities, especially as the nations celebrate the 45th anniversary of diplomatic relations this year.

Mai also extended sympathies to people in the western region of Japan who were severely affected by recent downpours and floods.

For her part, Tsuchiya said this is the first visit of a female delegation of the LDP to Vietnam. She expressed her hope to foster exchanges between the two countries’ female leaders in the time to come.

The LDP will continue its support and efforts to contribute to the bilateral relations in line with the Extensive Strategic Partnership for Peace and Prosperity in Asia, she affirmed. -VNA
