During their meetings, Nghia and local leaders looked into measures to promote collaboration between the two countries in various fields.

Speaker of the House of Councilors Enaam Mayara hailed the visit as an opportunity to review the achievements in cooperation between the Moroccan and Vietnamese legislatures, VietnamPlus said.

He stressed Morocco's willingness to welcome Vietnamese businesses and investors, highlighting potential for collaboration in the economic and trade sectors. Mayara also proposed facilitating exchanges between the CPV and Moroccan political parties.

Emphasizing the importance of cultural ties and established relations, Mayara proposed leveraging these strengths to further bolster bilateral cooperation and contribute to peace and friendship. He extended an official invitation to Chairman of the Vietnamese National Assembly Tran Thanh Man to visit Morocco.

Vice Speaker of the House of Representatives Nadia Touhami, for her part, acknowledged Vietnam's impressive economic growth which was recognized by international financial institutions.

Nghia affirmed Vietnam's prioritization of friendship and cooperation with Morocco. He outlined several proposals to enhance parliamentary ties, including exchange of delegations at all levels, collaboration in international forums, and strengthening the existing Friendship Parliamentarians Group mechanism.

He asked the Moroccan Parliament to facilitate business delegations from Morocco to explore opportunities in Vietnam's growing markets.

During a working session with General Secretary of Morocco's Party of Progress and Socialism (PPS) Nabil Benabdallah, Nghia said as of now, the CPV has relations with 253 parties in 115 countries worldwide, including 92 communist, 63 ruling parties, and 38 others joining ruling coalitions or governments. The CPV's foreign relations have yielded significant and comprehensive results, contributing to establishing an important political foundation for the stability, expansion and strengthening of Vietnam's bilateral relations with other countries.

He emphasized the need for both the CPV and PPS to continue facilitating exchange of delegations and contacts at all levels, saying that this approach allows for the sharing of information, experiences and theories on Party building, mass mobilization, global and regional issues of mutual concern.

Benabdallah also expressed his wish for mutual learning on political theory and socio-economic development strategies.

Nghia's visit also included productive discussions with the General Secretary of the Authenticity and Modernity Party (PAM), Fatima Ezzahra El Mansouri and Minister of Youth, Culture and Communication Mohamed Mehdi Bensaid. On those occasion, the official underscored Vietnam's commitment to multifaceted cooperation with Morocco, including collaboration in digital transformation, media exchange, and cultural promotion.

While in Morocco, the Vietnamese delegation also toured the Vietnam Village and the Vietnam Gate, symbolic landmarks of the growing ties between the two nations.

According to the Vietnamese Embassy in Morocco, the Vietnam Gate is located in Douar Sfari village, Ameur Seflia commune, Kenitra province.

This monument represents a traditional door of a Vietnamese village, built with tiles and dragon decorations imported from Vietnam and stone carved by the artisans of the Taza region.

Two sentences are engraved on this gate expressing the feelings of Moroccan-Vietnamese families: "In gratitude to the fatherland of Morocco, let us be determined to forge success. In nostalgia towards the maternal country of Vietnam, let us be determined to forge friendship between Morocco and Vietnam"./.
