Welcoming Indian Ambassador Pranay Verma, Thang said that this year, Vietnam and India are celebrating the 50th anniversary of their diplomatic ties, which marks an important milestone in the time-honoured bilateral friendship.
For a plan to organise a conference on this occasion, Thang stressed that it should be held in a national scale with the participation of central and local leaders, experts and scholars as well as businesses of both sides.
Regarding personnel training activities, he said the HCMA often invites Indian experts to lecture at strategic cadre planning classes held by the academy, adding this activity should be maintained and fostered in the time ahead.

Ambassador Pranay Verma said that the HCMA is the premier training institute for the senior Party and State officials of Vietnam and together with its Centre for India Studies, plays a key role in developing scholarship on India in Vietnam and promotion of academic exchanges with Indian institutions.
He suggested the two nations expand collaboration in three potential fields of health care, green recovery and digital economy.
The seminars between the two countries are an opportunity to learn new cooperation opportunities for both sides, he added. In 2022, the two countries can organise events in the first and second half of 2022 with the participation of scholars from the two countries, in the form of combined face-to-face and online.
The ambassador hoped that the two sides would soon determine a suitable time to hold these events.

Receiving Singaporean Ambassador Jaya Ratnam, Thang affirmed that the bilateral relationship is in a fine development stage.
For the HCMA, Singapore's development has always been a role model for Vietnamese experts and scholars to study, research, and draw experience for policy making and promulgation that is in accordance with Vietnam’s reality, he emphasised.
The official proposed the organisation of a conference to look back on the 50-year diplomatic relations between Vietnam and Singapore (1973-2023). This a milestone to once again affirm the development achievements in the traditional friendship and strategic cooperation partnership between the two countries, towards new cooperation orientations with potential fields such as: green growth, digital transformation, anti-corruption, party building.
Therefore, the two sides need to have a workshop to review the achievements and lessons learned in the past 50 years of cooperation, and the direction of cooperation in the coming time.
He suggested the two countries continue boosting personnel training and delegation exchanges as well as organising research programmes at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy under Nan Yang University of Singapore.
Sharing the view, Ambassador Jaya Ratnam asked the HCMA to soon carry out a plan on delegation exchanges in the context of the two countries gradually reopening political and economic activities and people-to-people exchanges.
The Ho Chi Minh National Academy of Politics was established 73 years ago in 1949.
During over 70 years of construction and bearing many different names, the academy has seen development in both scale and quality and accomplished its tasks of training Party officials and studying Party theories.
It is a leading national centre for training and improving qualifications and knowledge for cadres in charge of the Party building as well as lecturers of political theory for political schools and univeristies across the country.
