The Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) and the Communist Party of Cuba (CPC) held their first theory meeting in Hanoi on November 5.

The Vietnamese delegation was led by Secretary of the CPV’s Central Committee and Deputy Chairwoman of the National Assembly, Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan, while the Cuban delegation was headed by the Secretary of the CPC’s Central Committee and head of its International Relations Department Jose Ramon Balaguer.

Ngan said that the workshop, held at the beginning of a turning point in the two countries’ development process, is a good chance for theorists and activists from both Parties to share their experiences and discuss the current situations in their respective countries.

It is also to underline the practicality and need to follow the path to socialism that Vietnam and Cuba are both pursuing.

Balaguer said that this is the first time both Parties have held a joint workshop, which will help enhance the multi-faceted cooperation that already exists between both Parties and nations.

After holding discussions and debates over the two days, the two Parties will have a deeper perception of socio-economic development and the leading roles that both Parties play.-VNA
