(VOVworld) - A Vietnamese Party delegation led by Deputy Head of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for External Affairs Pham Quang Thao paid working visits to Mexico and El Salvador from March 12-18. In Mexico, Thao delivered a speech at the international seminar themed “The Parties and A New Society”, held by the Mexican Labor Party (PT) and attended by more than 700 delegates from 40 nations worldwide. In his speech, he briefed participants on the achievements of and challenges facing Vietnam during its 30-year of Doi Moi or the renewal process. Thanks to the sound leadership of the Communist Party, Vietnam has achieved great results in developing its socialist-oriented market economy, accelerating industrialization and modernization and expanding international cooperation. Vietnam’s reform cause has received significant support from the international community, including Mexico and Latin America, said Thao. On the sidelines of the seminar, the Vietnamese delegation met with other foreign delegations, including those from Cuba and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. It was also received by the Mexican Labor Party General Secretary and Senator Alberto Anaya Gutierrez and Secretary for External Relations of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) Javier Vega Camargo.

While in El Salvador, the Vietnamese delegation met with General Secretary of the Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front (FMLN) Medardo Gonzalez, Vice President Oscar Ortiz and the Speaker of the Parliament, Sigfrido Reyes. The Salvadoran leaders thanked Vietnam for supporting the FMLN’s struggle against dictators in the past and expressed their hopes for intensified cooperation through delegation exchanges and sharing their experiences in socio-economic development during the reform process.
