Trong congratulated the Chinese top leader on the success of the CPC’s 19th National Congress and on his re-election as the General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee, the 19th tenure.

He said he believed that under the leadership of the CPC headed by Xi, Chinese people will achieve all targets set by the CPC’s 19th National Congress and turn China into a strong, democratic, civilised, modern and beautiful socialist nation.

He also appreciated China’s participation in and contributions to the success of the 2017 APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting.

Xi expressed his delight at visiting Vietnam again right after the CPC’s 19th National Congress. He congratulated Vietnam on successfully organising the 2017 APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting as well as the meeting’s outcomes in fostering development in the region and the world.

He showed his sympathy over losses caused by recent disasters in Vietnam.

During their talks, the two Party chiefs informed each other of their respective country’s situation, discussing and agreeing on major orientations and measures to boost the relations between the Parties and countries in the time ahead.

They said they are delighted at positive developments in the Vietnam-China comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership, as evidenced by the regular high-level meetings, and intensified cooperation between ministries, localities and peoples. The two countries remain each other’s important economic partner, while trade, investment and tourism ties have enjoyed growth, and border situations on land and in the Gulf of Tonkin have basically been stable.

Both agreed to uphold the achieved results, and work actively to solve existing difficulties and shortcomings so as to develop the Vietnam-China comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership stably and sustainably.

Party General Secretary Trong affirmed Vietnam treasures and wants to boost its friendship and neighbourliness and the comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership with China in a stable and deeper fashion, and back China’s efforts to grow further and contribute positively to peace, stability and prosperity in the region and the world.

An overview of the meeting 



He emphasised several main points to strengthen the friendship and cooperation between the two Parties and countries.

Firstly, he asked the countries to intensify delegation exchanges, increase the efficiency of collaboration between the two Parties, and strengthen cooperation between the Vietnamese National Assembly and the National People’s Congress of China, between the Vietnam Fatherland Front and the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, and between the two countries’ ministries and peoples, particularly young generations.

He stressed the need to promote the coordinating role of the Steering Committee on Bilateral Cooperation in supervising and speeding up the implementation of signed agreements, especially high-level ones, and step up cooperation in diplomacy, defence, security and law enforcement.

It is essential to well implement the declaration on joint vision on defence cooperation by 2025, organise border defence exchanges and strategic defence dialogues, and share experience in Party work, political affairs, health, joining United Nations peacekeeping missions, and combating crimes.

The Vietnamese Party chief requested the two sides to maintain coordination between the two Foreign Ministries in boosting the bilateral ties as well as at multilateral forums, and direct press agencies to expand reporting each country’s land, people, and socio-economic development achievements as well as the bilateral relations, so as to enhance mutual understanding and consolidate the social foundation for the bilateral ties.

Secondly, the two sides should improve the effectiveness of cooperation in economy and other fields, he said, suggesting that both countries continue efficiently implementing high-level agreements and common perceptions, focusing on expanding investment and trade scale and applying measures to reduce Vietnam’s trade deficit.

Vietnam and China should boost win-win partnership in areas of China’s strength and Vietnam’s demand, including agriculture, environment, climate change response, science-technology and transportation, especially in seeking new rice varieties adapting to salinity condition in the Mekong Delta region, he said.

Trong proposed that the two countries properly settle issues related to fishing vessels and fishermen; manage, protect and use water resources along shared border in a sustainable manner, while working closely in preventing and coping with flood, ensuring nuclear safety, and creating optimal conditions for road, railway and airway transportation.

Thirdly, Vietnam and China should maintain peace and stability and deal with problems at sea smoothly, he stated.

The Party leader also underscored the necessity of safeguarding lasting peace and stability to minimize risks of instability, and building trust in the settlement of East Sea issues between countries concerned, saying this will benefit all sides involved as well as the region and the world.

All parties should exercise restraint and take no moves to complicate the situation or expand disputes, while respecting legitimate and legal rights of each other, and focusing efforts on maintaining peace and stability at sea to prioritize socio-economic development tasks.

He proposed that Vietnam and China fully and effectively implement the agreement on basic principles guiding the settlement of sea-related issues and the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the East Sea (DOC), in parallel with soon conducting the practical negotiation for the building of an effective and efficient Code of Conduct in the East Sea (COC).

The two countries should consider the application of suitable cooperation forms in some areas with real overlapping in line with international law, he said, adding that they should stick to carrying out the agreed roadmap, and utilize the experience gained in sea delineation and cooperation inside the Gulf of Tonkin to make progress in the delineation and collaboration in the waters off the mouth of the Gulf of Tonkin.

At the same time, they should consider the possibility and plans of cooperation among relevant parties as well as between ASEAN and China in some less sensitive areas with shared interest, including the management of fishing and protection of the maritime ecology and environment, said Trong.

For his part, Xi briefed his host on the major outcomes of the CPC’s 19th National Congress.

He declared that the Party and Government of China always give great attention to unceasingly reinforcing and developing the comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership with Vietnam under the motto “Friendly neighbours, comprehensive cooperation, long-term stability, looking toward the future” and in the spirit of “Good neighbors, good friends, good comrades, and good partners”.

He showed support for major orientations and measures to develop partnership between the two Parties and countries proposed by Party General Secretary Trong, while affirming that China attaches importance to maintaining and promoting bilateral traditional friendship with Vietnam.

He held that both sides should view the bilateral ties with a strategic and long-term vision, thus developing a stable, healthy and sustainable relationship to benefit people of both countries and contribute to peace, stability, development and prosperity of the region.

Xi suggested that the two countries continue maintaining regular high-level contacts and enhancing strategic exchanges and political trust; deepen the Party exchange channel and increase exchanges and cooperation in the fields of diplomacy, security, and defence; and promote substantial cooperation in service of each country’s renovation and reform, by bringing into full play the coordinating role of the Steering Committee for Bilateral Cooperation.

He also referred to promoting the efficiency of cooperative mechanisms on trade, infrastructure, and monetary-finance, and connecting development strategies of “Two Corridors, One Belt” framework and “Belt and Road” initiative to grow the countries’ economic-trade ties in a balanced and sustainable manner towards the 100-billion-USD goal in 2017.

He also suggested the two sides support and facilitate cooperation between localities and border areas of the two countries, increase people-to-people exchange, and ratchet up affiliations in social security to improve people’s life.

He vowed that China will continue providing a non-refundable aid worth 600 million CNY in three years to improve social security in Vietnam’s northern localities.

China will spare no effort to soundly manage conflicts at sea to maintain peace and stability in the East Sea, Xi stressed, affirming that China wants to work with ASEAN to implement comprehensively and efficiently the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the East Sea (DOC), and negotiate and build the Code of Conduct of Parties in the East Sea (COC).

He also suggested the two sides boost coordination at multilateral mechanisms like the United Nations, APEC, China-ASEAN, and Lancang-Mekong, contributing to maintaining peace, prosperity and development in the region and the world at large.

After their talks, the leaders witnessed the signing of cooperative documents between the two countries.
