Youri Latortue, who is on an official visit to Vietnam, expressed his admiration for the Doi moi (reform) achievements of the Southeast Asian nation.

He informed his host about the outcomes of his talks and meetings with the leaders of the State and the National Assembly of Vietnam. He also briefed the General Secretary about Haiti’s recent situation and thanked Vietnam for the cooperation with and assistance to Haiti.

Haiti wants to enhance cooperation with Vietnam across multiple spheres such as agriculture, transport, telecommunications and people-to-people exchange, with priority given to the exchange of high-ranking delegations to learn from each other’s experience in country leadership and management, he added.

Congratulating Haiti on its economic reform outcomes and national development, General Secretary Trong described the Vietnam visit by the Haiti parliamentary delegation as a landmark in the friendship and cooperation between the States, parliaments and peoples of the two countries.

He reiterated Vietnam’s consistent policy towards intensifying and expanding their friendship and multi-faceted cooperation with Haiti.

He asked both sides to continue with promoting connections in all aspects, particularly in such potential areas as agriculture, telecommunications and industrial production, thereby substantially contributing to their respective countries’ development.

The Party leader said he believes that the Haitian people will weather all challenges to obtain even greater attainments in building a prosperous and happy nation.
