President Trần Đại Quang urged the Vietnamese and Cuban Parties and States to continuously direct ministries and relevant departments to step up the existing bilateral co-operation mechanisms and refine a legal framework for stable and long-term collaboration while meeting with the Cuban NA Chairman Esteban Lazo Hernández.
Quang hailed the outcomes of the talks between the top Cuban legislator and Vietnamese NA Chairwoman Ngân, and hoped the two parliaments will consolidate ties in both bilateral and multilateral aspects.
Vietnam is willing to share its experience in reform and do its utmost to support the Cuban people to overcome difficulties and challenges, Quang said.
He recognized the effective cooperation mechanisms between the two countries such as the Parties’ theoretical workshop, the inter-governmental committee’s meeting, the deputy foreign ministers’ political consultation, and the deputy defense ministers’ strategic dialogue.
The two countries could tap into huge potential in economic, trade, and investment co-operation, he said, adding that more Vietnamese businesses are eyeing the Cuban market.
Esteban Lazo Hernández said Vietnam has a plenty of experience in agriculture and energy.
This is an ideal time for the two countries to bring their co-operative relations into reality, he added.
The same day, the Cuban legislator and his entourage visited the Hồ Chí Minh National Academy of Politics. (CubaMinrex - EmbaCuba Vietnam)
