Theoretical workshop augments Vietnam-Lao party cooperation

VOV.VN - The seventh theoretical workshop between the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) and the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party (LPRP) on the theme of “Party and political system building in the new situation” was held in the central province of Quang Binh on July 30.

In his address, Vo Van Thuong, Politburo member, Secretary of the CPV Central Committee and head of the CPV Central Committee’s Commission for Information and Education stated the CPV has deemed Party building a key task that guarantees the success of the reform cause, and  extolled
the remarkable achievements in Party building and rectification.

Pointing out shortcomings in Party building and rectification, Thuong called for greater efforts to intensify Party building in the political front, scrutinize the ideological, theoretical and personnel work, combat individualism, corruption and wastefulness, promoting public role in Party and political system building, and propel relations between the Party, State and people. 

An array of theoretical and practical issues in Party and political system building were touched upon as a contribution to improving the leadership and combat capacity of the Party in the new situation, he said. 

Thuong suggested regularly sharing experience in Party and political system building to contribute to the success of the reform cause in each country. 

For his party, Kikeo Khaykham Phithoune, Secretary of the LPRP Central Committee, head of the LPRP’s Commission for Propaganda and Training and President of the Lao National Council for Social Sciences, highlighted the great significance of building a pure and strong Party and political system, describing it as an urgent task to improve the leadership and combat capacity of the Party as well as the efficiency of State management, and enhance the role of political-social organizations. 

He underlined the need to boost the building of a pure and strong Party, revamp the organization and operation of the Lao Front for National Construction and build political-social organizations in an effective manner. 

The two-day workshop covers thematic presentations and discussions to help participants get deeper insights into matters of shared concern.
