BEIJING, March 29 (Xinhua) -- The Communist Party of China (CPC) and the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) held their 17th theory seminar on Wednesday via video link, exchanging experience gained in the development of new approaches to social governance in the era of informatization.
Li Shulei, a member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and head of the Publicity Department of the CPC Central Committee, attended the seminar.
Li said that the consensus reached by the leaders of both parties provided guidance for the enhancement of ties between the two parties and the two countries, as well as for promoting the cause of socialism on both sides.
From the strategic perspective of advancing the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation on all fronts through a Chinese path to modernization, the 20th CPC National Congress last October mapped out a new blueprint for the improvement of the social governance system, Li said.
He said that as social governance faces both new opportunities and challenges brought by informatization, China has taken advantage of Party leadership and socialism to help enhance social governance.
Noting that China is committed to putting the people first, Li said to improve social governance through informatization, the country has firmly established the concept of law-based governance, emphasized the application of new technologies and approaches, and given full play to the role of the internet in spreading advanced culture and mainstream values.
Nguyen Xuan Thang, a member of the Politburo of the CPV Central Committee, chairman of the Central Theoretical Council and president of Ho Chi Minh National Academy of Politics, spoke highly of China's achievements in strengthening and developing new approaches to social governance.
He expressed willingness to carry forward the traditional friendship between the two sides, deepen mutual trust, strengthen exchanges on governance experience, expand cooperation in various fields, improve Vietnam-China relations, and promote the cause of socialism on both sides.
