He also appreciated cooperative ties and practical exchange programmes between the inspection agencies of the two Communist Parties.
Manh expressed his belief that the visit would make an important contribution to the comprehensive strategic partnership and mutual confidence between Vietnam and China.
His view was echoed by the Chinese head delegate, who affirmed China’s determination to constantly develop the comprehensive strategic partnership with Vietnam to fulfill “16 golden letter” commitments made by leaders of the two countries.
“The friendship and cooperation between Vietnam and China in general, and between the two inspection agencies in particular, have constantly developed in both depth and width,” emphasized He.
Host and guest exchanged congratulations to each other for their individual countries’ socio-economic development.

Also on the day, the Chinese delegation held talks with a CPV delegation led by Nguyen Van Chi, Politburo member, Secretary of the CPV Central Committee and head of the CPV CC’s Inspection Commission.
