HA NOI (VNS) — Delegates from the Communist Party of Viet Nam (CPV) and the French Communist Party (PCF) discussed opportunities and challenges in international integration and realising sustainable development goals in Viet Nam and France during the two parties' second theoretical workshop in Ha Noi on Wednesday and Thursday.
Politburo member Dinh The Huynh – who is secretary of the Party Central Committee, head of its Commission for Popularisation and Education, and chairman of the Central Theoretical Council – and PCF National Secretary Pierre Laurent chaired the event.
Under its consistent policy on international integration, Viet Nam has stepped up relations with foreign partners and actively engaged in multilateral mechanisms, especially ASEAN and the UN, Huynh said.
The country has also improved the efficiency of international co-operation in economics, culture, society, defence and security, contributing to national industrialisation, modernisation and sustainable development, he added.
Through the workshop, the two communist parties will share valuable experiences in international integration to more effectively implement policies in the field, as well as reinforce their traditional friendship and solidarity, and contribute to the enhancement of the Viet Nam-France strategic partnership.
The PCF National Secretary hailed the mechanism of the theoretical workshop, which he said serves as a bridge for the two sides to exchange information and increase co-operative ties.
The function should provide deeper analysis on the relations between the two countries, and the Asia-Europe rapport, thus helping drive the Viet Nam-France strategic partnership forward and increasing solidarity between the two parties and peoples, Laurent added. — VNS
