The Vietnamese leader suggested regular theory discussion between the two parties and support between the two countries at regional and global forums.

In late 2018, the PCF will organize a congress marking its centenary. Mr. Laurent suggested appropriate activities be held on this occasion to honor President Ho Chi Minh, who greatly contributed to the two Communist Parties and the two nations.
