Đam requested both sides enhance co-operation and experience sharing to perfect policies and build models of social security in accordance with sustainable development.
He also asked the Cuban Ministry to create optimal conditions for Vietnamese firms operating in Cuba.
Fernandez informed her host that she and her entourage attended a session of the Việt Nam-Cuba Intergovernmental Committee, and had a working session with leaders of Việt Nam’s Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs.
