Maintaining and fostering Vietnam–China relations in a healthy and stable manner is the common responsibility of both sides to serve the long-term interests of the two peoples, said Hoang Binh Quan, head of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for External Affairs.

Quan received a delegation from the Communist Party of China led by Zhang Zhinan, a member of the Standing Committee of Fujian province’s Party Committee, in Hanoi on September 22.
He expressed his hope that cooperation between Vietnamese locales and Chinese locales, including Fujian, would be promoted to create positive developments in the time ahead.
Zhang, who is also Executive Vice Governor of Fujian, stated that his delegation’s visit aimed to realise the agreements reached by the two countries’ leaders, to strengthen mutual understanding and trust between the two Parties and to intensify cooperation between Fujian and Vietnamese locales.
He said he believed that both sides would work to realise their senior leaders’ common perceptions and step up bilateral trade and economic ties and people-to-people diplomacy.
The Chinese delegation also held a working session with deputy head of the Party Central Committee’s Economic Commission Nguyen Ngoc Bao, during which the two sides discussed measures to foster cooperation on economics, trade, investment and tourism.
They are scheduled to make a fact-finding tour of Hanoi and Quang Ninh province to study the local socio-economic situation./.
