Addressing the congress, Deputy PM Minh expressed his appreciation for the important achievements that the association has gained during the 2012-2017 tenure, significantly contributing to enhancing the mutual understanding between the two peoples as well as consolidating the solid foundation for the relations between the two Parties and States.

The association has proactively promoted its activities, practically contributing to the external activities of the Vietnamese Party and State, to enhance their cooperation with China and becoming an important bridge to tighten the friendship between the two nations, he added.

The Deputy PM emphasised that people-to-people exchanges are a social foundation and a source of strength for the two countries' cooperation, enhancing mutual trust, understanding and friendship between the two peoples.

At the event, he asked the VCFA to boost measures to develop the Vietnam – China relations, including the strengthening of friendship exchanges, proactively participating in the communication activities on the two countries’ ties, improving the quality of its organisations, and inspiring the spirit of friendship of people from all walks of life, particularly in younger generations.

The association should continue to encourage the people of the two countries to successfully implement the agreements and common awareness of the leaders, as well as to expand exchange activities in association with enhancing the relations in the fields of economy, trade, culture and education, noted Deputy PM Minh.

The congress appointed a new 70-member executive committee for the 2017-2022 term and the Member of Party Central Committee and Director of Ho Chi Minh National Academy of Politics was re-elected as the VCFA’s Chairman.

On the occasion, the association was honoured to receive the PM’s certificate of merits. Many of the association’s members were awarded the certificates of merit and the medal ‘For the peace and friendship among peoples’ by the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations.
