Vietnam, Czech communist parties step up relations

Prague, February 5 (VNA) – Officials from the Czech Republic expressed their hope that the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) will share its theoretical and practical experience – especially lessons withdrawn from the organisation of the 12th National Party Congress – with the Communist Party of Bohemia and Moravia (KSCM).

In an interview with the Vietnam News Agency (VNA), KSCM Chairman Vojtech Filip, who is also Vice Chairman of the Czech Parliament’s Chamber of Deputies, congratulated the CPV on the success of the 12th National Party Congress and Nguyen Phu Trong on his re-election as Party General Secretary. The CPV set a bright example for the KSCM , he noted.

The KSCM will organise an international workshop on theories of communist parties next September, he informed, calling for the attendance of the CPV.

Filip stressed that Vietnam has developed dynamically to gear towards the position of an economic locomotive in the region.

Vietnam and the Czech Republic have a traditional friendship, he said, affirming his country’s support for the Southeast Asian nation during its past struggle for national liberation and the present cause of socialism building.

Filip stressed the need for the two countries to utilise their substantial potential for cooperation and extended his wish that the bilateral ties will thrive in years to come.

Talking with a VNA correspondent, Pavel Kovacik, a member of the Parliament of the Czech Republic and Head of the KSCM group of deputies, said the KSCM has organised many theoretical workshops on the CPV’s leadership.

Pavel, who is President of the Czech-Vietnam Friendship Parliamentary Group , said the Southeast Asian nation has seen major achievements, with a high, stable economic growth rate.

In his capacity as Vice Chairman of the Agricultural Committee of the Chamber of Deputies, Pavel pinned hope on outcomes of the visit to Vietnam by a committee delegation scheduled for next September.
