HÀ NỘI — A high-ranking delegation of the ruling National League for Democracy (NLD) of Myanmar is paying a visit to Việt Nam from July 1 to 5 at the invitation of the Communist Party of Việt Nam (CPV) Central Committee.
CPV Politburo member and Vice Chairwoman of the Vietnamese National Assembly Tòng Thị Phóng received the delegation in Hà Nội on Wednesday.
Highlighting the recent strides in the countries’ traditional friendship and multifaceted cooperation, the host said since Việt Nam and Myanmar set up the comprehensive cooperative partnership in August 2017, bilateral relations have enjoyed strong developments in numerous fields.
She expressed her hope that the NLD, as the ruling party with major influence on the Myanmar parliament, will continue helping to promote bilateral co-operation, especially in economy, trade and investment. She asked the party to help increase connections between the two legislative bodies to jointly monitor the implementation of the Governments’ agreements, thus developing bilateral partnerships in a more effective manner.
For his part, U Thein Oo, member of the NLD Central Executive Committee, head of the financial committee and member of the economic committee of the NLD, affirmed that the NLD will actively contribute to the enhancement of relations between Myanmar and Vietnamese parliamentarians, as well as between the two countries’ legislative bodies.
Earlier, a CPV delegation led by head of the CPV Central Committee’s External Relations Commission Hoàng Bình Quân held talks with the NLD officials.
The two sides informed each other of the situation of their respective parties and countries while discussing concrete measures to bolster bilateral ties in the future.
Quân said the CPV is ready to share its experience with the NLD in the fields of party building, training young party members, and making economic development strategies and policies.
U Thein Oo stressed that Myanmar will exert efforts to join Việt Nam in fostering relations between the two parties, thereby helping to strengthen the countries’ substantive connections for the benefit of the two peoples, and for peace, stability, co-operation and development in the region and the world, as well as for a united and strong ASEAN Community.
During their stay in Việt Nam, the NLD delegation had meetings with officials of the CPV Central Committee’s Economic Commission, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, the Ministry of Transport, the Ministry of Industry and Trade, and the Việt Nam–Myanmar Friendship Association. They also visited northern Ninh Bình Province and some economic and cultural establishments in Việt Nam. — VNS
