Meeting Secretary of the Party Committee of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region Peng Qinghua in Hanoi on November 4, Deputy PM Phuc said both sides should actively implement the common perception reached by the two countries’ leaders, increase delegation and people-to-people exchanges and make full use of existing cooperative mechanisms in the time ahead in order to make substantial progress in bilateral ties.
