Ben Tre (VNA) – Chairman of the
Cuban National Assembly Juan Esteban Lazo Hernandez led a delegation to the
Mekong Delta province of Ben Tre on June 17 within the framework of his official
visit to Vietnam.

He was welcomed by Chairman of the
provincial People’s Committee Cao Van Trong, who briefed him on the locality’s
socio-economic development situation.

The Cuban NA leader spoke highly of Ben
Tre’s socio-economic development achievements and operation experience of the
local People’s Council, Deputy Delegation and political and social
organisations.

Speaking at the working session, Vietnamese
NA Vice Chairwoman Tong Thi Phong stressed the significance of the visit to
Vietnam and to Ben Tre in particular by Cuba’s top legislator, saying it shows
the time-honoured friendship and high political trust between the two
countries.

Earlier, the guest attended a ceremony to
inaugurate and rename the Luong Hoa kindergarten in Luong Hoa commune, Giong Trom
district the Moncada kindergarten.

On January 9, 1984, the provincial People
Committee decided to choose Luong Hoa commune to twin with Cuba and call it “Moncada
village”. Moncada is where the Cuban revolution against the dictatorship of Batista
began.

Meanwhile, the Hinba Bonita cow farm in
Moncada was named “Ben Tre village”.

The naming, initiated by President Fidel Castro and general Nguyen Thi Dinh,
reflects the solidarity between the two nations.-VNA
