Hanoi (VNA) – The Party, State and
people-to-people diplomacy contributed to fulfilling goals during the tenure of
the 12th National Party Congress, said head of the Party Central Committee’s
Commission for External Relations Hoang Binh Quan.
In an interview recently granted to the Vietnam News Agency,
Quan said Vietnam was a symbol of the world in the past struggle for national
independence and reunification, and also set example during national renewal and
development. Therefore, international friends are eyeing the 13th National
Party Congress. Many political parties, international organisations and heads
of states sent messages and letters of congratulations to the Vietnamese
leaders on this occasion.
Quan added that a number of world leaders consider Vietnam
an exemplary model of development. At present, Vietnam has been hailed
worldwide for its success in meeting the dual goal of fighting COVID-19 pandemic

Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV), drastic actions of the Vietnamese Government and
unity of the Vietnamese people.
He said international friends expect that the 13th National Party Congress will open up a new period of development for Vietnam.
According to him, important progress has been made in Party
diplomacy over the past five years. Vietnam strengthened ties with political
parties globally in both width and depth, including ruling communist parties
from neighbouring socialist countries, and parties from traditional friends and
major partners, contributing to consolidating political trust, cultivating
friendship with countries as well as improving leadership capacity.

theoretical seminars with eight important political parties, policy dialogues
and consultations with major parties and political parties worldwide.
Vietnam also signed training agreements to send thousands of
officials to the Communist Party of China, Singapore People’s Party and political
parties in Australia each year, along with many other training courses for
officials and cadres at all levels.
In his view, the CPV is one of the important parties with
respected voices at forums of the communist and workers’ parties globally such
as in Europe and Latin America where Vietnam has held ties with the communist
and left-wing parties, contributing to improving Vietnam’s stature on

relations, he highlighted the effective combination among the Party, State and

peace and stability for development, and protecting sovereignty and territorial
As the world is evolving rapidly, complicatedly and
uncertainly, he suggested the CPV further broaden ties with political parties worldwide,
and stay flexible and creative to adapt with the new situation.
In 2019, the Politburo issued Directive No.32-CT/TW on
strengthening and improving the efficiency of the Party’s foreign relations in
the new situation.
He called for continuing to enrich the brainpower of the
Party by pooling international resources, including Party leadership
experience, science-technology, human resource training, material and spiritual
resources in service of the national renewable and development, contributing to
accomplishing tasks by the 13th National Party Congress./.
