Head of the Publicity Department of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Liu Qibao, who is in Vietnam to attend the 12th theory conference between the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) and the CPC, was received by the General Secretary on December 22.

He spoke highly of the conference’s theme “Party building amidst international integration – challenges and experience of the CPV and the CPC”, underscoring the significance of Party building and anti-corruption to each Party in the current intensive international integration.

He said he hopes conference participants will focus on discussing theories and sharing experience, thus improving the effectiveness of corruption prevention and combat as well as the authoritative role of the two Parties in the new period.

“The Party, State and people of Vietnam always attach much importance to fostering friendly neighbourliness and comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership with China,” he said.

The Party leader suggested that the two sides maintain regular high-level meetings, while strengthening cooperation in all fields and increasing exchanges among Party agencies, ministries, sectors, localities and people of both nations.

He also stressed the importance of communication and media agencies in boosting Vietnam-China relations.

The Party chief also expressed his belief that Liu’s visit will help to step up the friendship and cooperation between the two Parties and nations.

Liu briefed his host on the outcomes of the CPC Central Committee’s sixth meeting.

He hailed the significant theme of the 12th theory conference and stressed a willingness to share experience with Vietnam in Party building and anti-corruption at the event and strengthen cooperation between the communication and media agencies.

He affirmed that the Party and Government of China wish to work closely with Vietnam in expanding the traditional friendship as well as the comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership between Vietnam and China, ensuring the ties grow in a healthy and stable manner.
