HÀ NỘI – The head of the Communist Party of Việt Nam (CPV) Central Committee’s Commission on Mass Mobilisation, Trương Thị Mai, hosted a reception in Hà Nội yesterday for a visiting delegation from the Cuban Women’s Federation (FMC) led by its Secretary General Teresa Maria.
Teresa Maria, Politburo member of the Communist Party of Cuba, affirmed that the FMC would work closely with the Việt Nam Women’s Union (VWU) in implementing agreements at all levels, reinforcing the special solidarity between the two countries.
She thanked Việt Nam for its great support for the Cuban people, particularly women, expressing her belief that under the leadership of the CPV, Vietnamese people would make even greater achievements in the national renewal process.
Welcoming the Cuban guests, Mai, who is a Politburo member and Secretary of the CPV Central Committee, asserted the consistent stance of the Party, State and people of Việt Nam towards supporting the revolutionary cause of the Cuban people.
She appreciated the delegation’s visit, as well as the increasingly close friendship and recent co-operation between the VWU and FMC.
While highlighting the time-honoured solidarity and friendship, Mai, who is also president of the Việt Nam-Cuba Friendship Association, said this was a valuable asset of the two Parties and states.
She also conveyed her pleasure at Cuba’s success in the process of updating its socio-economic model, believing that Cuba would overcome its difficulties and challenges to promote national development.
Regarding the implementation of gender equality goals, the Vietnamese official said Việt Nam had learned much from Cuba’s experience in this field.
She suggested the women’s unions of the two countries enhance co-ordination to effectively implement their agreements, while promoting exchange and experience sharing in personnel training, as well as close co-operation at international and regional forums. — VNS
