HCM City (VNA) – Secretary of the Ho Chi Minh City Party Committee
Nguyen Thien Nhan met with visiting Chairman of the Cuban National Assembly
Esteban Lazo Hernandez on June 16.

At the reception, the city’s top leader lauded the importance of the Cuban top
legislator’s visit to Vietnam and thanked Cuba for giving support for Vietnam
during its past struggle for national independence and reunification.

HCM City spares no effort to enhance traditional friendship and cooperation
between Vietnam and Cuba, Nhan stated.

For his part, Esteban Lazo Hernandez reiterated Cuba’s commitment to developing
ties and solidarity with Vietnam.

Expressing his gratitude toward Vietnam’s assistance for his country over the
past 20 years, he said Cuba wants to learn from Vietnam’s socio-economic
development experience to successfully develop its own models for national
growth in the new context.

Hernandez urged stronger cooperation between the two countries’ elected
agencies and legislative bodies as well as boosting bilateral trade –
investment.

After the meeting, the Cuban top legislator and his delegation had a discussion
with his host and representatives from the municipal People’s Council and
People’s Committee on the apparatus of provincial-level political agencies.

The two sides examined the relationship among Party
committees of different levels, people’s councils, people’s committees and
local delegations to the National Assembly. Experience in mobilising resources
for socio-economic development was also a topic of discussion.
