In his opening speech, Phong spoke highly of efforts made by the Mexico's Labour Party (PT) in organising the seminar, which he said is important for left-wing and progressive forces in Latin America and around the world.
He expressed his belief that the event will significantly contribute to reinforcing the unity of left-wing and progressive parties in Latin America.
The Vietnamese official took the occasion to brief participants on Vietnam’s situation, especially achievements in Party building and strengthening the Party's leadership.
PT Secretary General Alberto Anaya congratulated Vietnam on its socio-economic attainments during the over 30-year renewal (Doi moi) process under the leadership of the CPV.
He also underlined the increasing role played by Vietnam in the international arena, expressing his hope to enhance the traditional friendship between the two Parties and countries.
Participants to the seminar focused on analysing and assessing regional issues, and discussing measures to promote socio-economic development and political stability in the region.
