HCM City leader hosts Chinese youth league’s secretary

Deputy Secretary of the Ho Chi Minh City Party Committee Vu Thi Dung on August 17 hosted a reception for Secretary of the Secretariat of the Central Committee of the Communist Youth League of China (CYLC) Fu Zhenbang.

Dung expressed her belief that Fu’s visit will help deepen the friendship between Vietnam and China as well as between the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union (HCMYU) and the CYLC.

The official told her guest that the municipal youth union and the Vietnam Youth Federation’s HCM City chapter have made noted contributions to the city’s building and development.

The local youth organisations have launched various activities to encourage young people to take part in national construction, she said, adding that they have also proven their pioneering role and responsibility in joint efforts to turn HCM City into a civilised and modern city during 2015-2020.

For his part, Fu expressed his impression on dynamism and creativeness of youths in HCM City, voicing his hope for more exchanges and cooperation activities between youth unions of Vietnamese and Chinese cities and provinces.

The HCMYU and the CYLC should step up their collaboration to contribute to cultivating the friendship and comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership between the two countries, he said.

Fu is in Vietnam to attend the 18th Vietnam-China youth friendship meeting that officially kicked off in Hanoi on August 14.

The meeting is held from August 13-19, with main activities taking place in Hanoi, Ninh Binh, Da Nang and Ho Chi Minh City.

The meeting has been organised in rotation in each country since 2000, aiming to realise the common policy of the leaders of the two Parties and States on enhancing exchanges between the Vietnamese and Chinese people and youths.
