At an invitation of the Labour Party of Mexico (PT), Deputy General Director of the Vietnam News Agency (VNA) Dinh Dang Quang made a working visit to Mexico from September 9-14 to further strengthen bilateral friendship and cooperation.

Meeting with PT General Secretary Alberto Anaya Gutierrez, Quang briefed him on Vietnam’s current situation, VNA’s main activities in the recent past and the implementation of a memorandum of understanding on cooperation between the two sides which focuses on the publication of several books and the Vietnam Pictorial in Spanish as well as the organisation of training courses for VNA staff.

The PT General Secretary spoke highly of the recent cooperation between his Party and Vietnam’s national news agency, and agreed to continue intensifying that fine relationship in the time to come, including the consideration of possibility of publishing some books to serve Vietnam’s diplomatic activities in Latin America.

The party is ready to provide scholarships for those assigned by the VNA to study in Mexico, Gutierrez said.

During his stay, the VNA official paid a courtesy visit to new General Director of the Mexican News Agency, Notimex, Alejandro Ramos Esquivel, during which both sides highly valued their cooperation over the past time and agreed to soon renew a cooperation agreement.
