HÀ NỘI — General Secretary Nguyễn Phú Trọng has asked Vietnamese and Chinese party officials to share practical experiences in Party building and in combatting corruption.
He made his remarks yesterday on receiving head of the Publicity Department of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Liu Qibao, who is in Việt Nam to attend the 12th theory conference of the Communist Party of Việt Nam (CPV) and the CPC.
He spoke highly of the conference’s theme “Party building amidst international integration – challenges and experience of the CPV and the CPC”, underscoring the significance of Party building and anti-corruption for each Party in the current process of intensive international integration.
He said he hopes conference participants will focus on discussing theories and sharing experience, thus improving the effectiveness of corruption prevention and combat, as well as the ruling role of the two Parties in the new era.
“The Party, State and people of Việt Nam always attach much importance to fostering friendly neighbourliness and a comprehensive strategic co-operative partnership with China,” he said.
The Party leader suggested that the two sides maintain regular high-level meetings, while strengthening co-operation in all fields and increasing exchanges among Party agencies, ministries, localities and peoples.
He also stressed the importance of communication and media agencies in boosting the Việt Nam-China relations.
The Party chief also expressed his belief that Liu’s visit will help step up the friendship and co-operation between the two Parties and nations.
Liu briefed his host on the outcomes of the CPC Central Committee’s sixth meeting.
He hailed the significant theme of the 12th theory conference and stressed the willingness to share experience with Việt Nam in Party building and anti-corruption, and to strengthen co-operation between the communication and media agencies.
He affirmed that the Party and Government of China wish to work closely with Việt Nam in persistently expanding the traditional friendship as well as comprehensive strategic co-operative partnership between Việt Nam and China, developing the ties in a healthy and stable manner. — VNS
