This symposium focused on clarifying decisive factors in the socio-economic development and political and ideological work of each Party; and analyzing the situation and solutions of each party, thus clarifying some urgent theoretical issues of mutual concern.
The event in Hanoi was co-chaired by Nguyen Xuan Thang, Politburo member, President of the Ho Chi Minh National Academy of Politics (HCMA) and Chairman of the Central Theory Council, and Roberto Morales Ojeda, Politburo member and permanent member of the Secretariat of the Communist Party of Cuba Central Committee.
