Vietnam News Agency (VNA) General Director Nguyen Duc Loi held talks in Hanoi on September 30 with a visiting delegation from the Prensa Latina (PL) News Agency of Cuba led by its President Luis Enrique Gonzalez Acosta.

General Director Nguyen Duc Loi thanked the PL for its cooperation, support and assistance for the VNA representative office in Havana over the past time, especially the provision of its daily bulletins as well as official and important information sources.

The PL has annually sent its experts to help the VNA’s Department for Foreign News Services improve its Spanish bulletin and train sub-editors, he said.

Emphasising the effective collaboration between the two national news agencies, President Luis Enrique Gonzalez Acosta expressed his wish that the two sides increase meetings and exchanges to improve their cooperation in the coming time.

On the same day, the PL delegation was received by Vice Standing Chairman of the Vietnam Journalists Association Ha Minh Hue, who said he hopes the journalists associations of Vietnam and Cuba will soon sign a memorandum of understanding on cooperation in press activities while increasing the exchange of delegations to strengthen mutual understanding.-VNA
