Wise and flexible decisions lead to success
According to Cuban Ambassador to Vietnam Orlando Nicolás Hernández Guillén, wise and flexible decisions of the Party and Government are the factors leading to Vietnam's success in maintaining macroeconomic stability and ensuring the balance of the economy.
In the context of the Covid-19 pandemic still having a heavy impact on the global scale, Hernández said that the Vietnamese political system was still making tireless efforts to ensure an adequate supply of vaccines and achieve high vaccination coverage. This played an important role in helping Vietnam realize its sustainable development goals and economic development plan.
The Cuban diplomat also appreciated Vietnam's consistency and perseverance in implementing the Resolution of the 13th National Party Congress, in which foreign policy aims to ensure security and peace, as well as create favorable conditions for economic development and attracting foreign investment.
General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong's message on the direction of diplomacy in his speech at the first National Conference on Foreign Affairs recently demonstrated the acumen of Vietnamese leaders to rise to challenges in the context of changes on a global scale.
Referring to the relationship between the two countries, Hernández affirmed that in the context of the pandemic, comprehensive cooperation between Vietnam and Cuba was even stronger, and reflected in mutual support, both materially and spiritually.
President Nguyen Xuan Phuc's official visit to Cuba in September has highlighted the special relationship between the two countries, demonstrating Vietnam's strong support for Cuba in the current challenging period.
During this trip, on behalf of the Party, State and people of Vietnam, President Nguyen Xuan Phuc donated 5,000 tons of rice and some medical equipment to the Cuban people. Cuba has also provided Vietnam with 5 million doses of vaccine against Covid-19 under anagreement signed by the two sides.
The results of the visit contributed to the overall success of Vietnam's diplomacy in enhancing the prestige and position of Vietnam in the international arena.
In addition, it promoted the implementation of the foreign policy set out at the 13th Party Congress, enlisting the practical and effective support of the international community, especially for the prevention and control of the Covid-19 pandemic.
