HÀ NỘI — Việt Nam Communist Party (CPV)’s Central Committee General Secretary Nguyễn Phú Trọng hosted a reception in Hà Nội on Friday for ambassadors and charges d’affaires of nine ASEAN countries on the occasion of Tết (Lunar New Year). 

The ASEAN diplomats congratulated the Vietnamese Party, Government and people on their great development and diplomatic achievements in 2017, particularly hosting the APEC Economic Leaders’ Week in the central city of Đà Nẵng. 

They said they believed that under the leadership of the CPV led by Trọng, the Vietnamese people would reap greater attainments in 2018 and beyond. 

They also informed the host of the development of relations between Việt Nam and each ASEAN nation, vowing to do their best to enhance friendship with Việt Nam in particular and among ASEAN countries in general, contributing to peace, stability and prosperity in Southeast Asia. 

For his part, Trọng attributed Việt Nam’s 2017 achievements to the peaceful and stable environment in the region and effective co-operation with the international community, including ASEAN countries. 

Applauding this year’s theme of ‘Resilient and Innovative ASEAN’ initiated by Singapore as ASEAN Chair, the Party chief expressed his belief that with the efforts of member states, ASEAN will continue to make progress, enhance intra-bloc solidarity and co-operation, expand relations with external partners and foster common development goals. — VNS
