HÀ NỘI — Moroccan Ambassador to Việt Nam Jamale Chouaibi has highlighted the importance of the 13th National Party Congress, saying the results of the event will have a great influence on Việt Nam’s socio-economic life in the future.
Taking to the Vietnam News Agency, Chouaibi said he highly valued Việt Nam’s careful preparation for the political event, including launching an official website of the congress nearly five months before it takes place, and collecting public opinions for the congress's draft documents.
He said 2020 was a difficult year but Việt Nam managed to overcome all difficulties and challenges to achieve significant achievements, which were recognised by international friends.
Vietnamese people's interest in the congress reflected the influence of this political event on their daily lives, while Việt Nam's growing integration and position in the international arena explains the interest of the international community in the event, the ambassador noted.
The leadership role of the Communist Party of Việt Nam in the fight against COVID-19 as well as its efforts to maintain economic growth have been appreciated by the international community, he said.
Việt Nam is a model in responding to the pandemic thanks to prompt medical measures, and the support and unanimous involvement of people in the COVID-19 fight, he said.
Chouaibi said the CPV's decision to adopt the policy of Đổi mới (renewal) in 1986 has helped Việt Nam become a successful example in social and economic development.
Việt Nam has acquired an important position as an emerging country with strategic partnerships with a number of big countries in Asia-Pacific, he affirmed.
Mohamed Djouadj, Chairman of the African Vovinam Federation and Chairman of the Algerian Vovinam Federation, also emphasised the importance of the Party Congress for Việt Nam and the region, as it will define the path for Việt Nam in the future amid changes in the world caused by the COVID-19 crisis.
The Vietnamese Government is pursuing a stable and successful economic development plan, aiming to promote domestic financial capacity towards future prosperity, he said.
He praised the flexible policies of the Vietnamese Government to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as great strides of the country in enhancing its people’s wellbeing.
Việt Nam has become a jewel of Asia and a destination for a large number of foreign investors and tourists, he said. — VNS
