The leader urged the two sides to maintain high-level delegation exchanges and promote co-operation in all fields while increasing exchanges between Party agencies, ministries, departments, localities and peoples.
Communication and press agencies play a crucial role in enhancing Việt Nam-China relations, he added.
Huang conveyed the best regards of General Secretary of the CPC and President Xi Jinping to Party General Secretary Trọng.
He expressed his pleasure in visiting Việt Nam and witnessing the recent socio-economic achievements of the country.
The Chinese official took the opportunity to introduce his country’s remarkable accomplishments in society and economy, as well as theoretical developments of the CPC since its 19th Congress.
The Chinese Party and Government are keen to develop its traditional friendship and comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership with Việt Nam in a healthy, active and stable manner, Huang said, adding that China wants to discuss in-depth with Việt Nam about renovations and open-door reforms.
