During a reception in Hanoi on September 18, the Party leader expressed his wish that the Vietnam-China relations would develop healthily and steadily for the interests of the two countries’ people as well as for peace and development in the region and the world.

Hailing positive development of ties between the two Parties and countries over the past years, he underscored the significance of the exchange of theory and experience in socio-economic development, Party building and personnel training.

He hopes that the CPC, led by Xi Jinping, will successfully organise its 19th National Congress.

Liu, who is in Vietnam from September 18-19, expressed his belief that under the leadership of the Communist Party of Vietnam led by General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong, the Vietnamese people will continue reaping greater successes in the national reform and socialism building.

He affirmed that the Party and State of China attach importance towards developing the traditional friendship and cooperation between the two Parties and countries.

The guest wishes to work closely with Vietnam in order to prepare for the Party General Secretary and President of China’s official visit to Vietnam and his attendance at the APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting in November, the first foreign trip made by the Chinese leader following the 19th CPC National Congress.

The same day, Politburo member Tran Quoc Vuong, Secretary of the CPV Central Committee and head of the Committee’s Inspection Commission held talks with the Chinese guest.

The two sides extensively discussed measures to fully and effectively implement common perceptions and agreements between leaders of the two Parties and countries, contributing to strengthening political trust and friendship, improving the efficiency of practical collaboration in diverse areas, maintaining peace and security, and properly settling the East Sea issue.
