The Vietnamese side highly appraises the 19th CPC National Congress’s great achievements and its establishment of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era as a guiding ideology for the CPC. It is believed that the Chinese people will, under the leadership of the CPC Central Committee with General Secretary Xi Jinping at the core, surely complete the grand goals set forth at the 19th CPC National Congress to build China into a great modern socialist country that is prosperous, strong, democratic, culturally advanced, harmonious and beautiful and make greater contributions to regional and world peace and development. The Vietnamese side spoke highly of General Secretary Xi Jinping’s high attention to and personal promotion of Viet Nam-China relations.

Xi Jinping thanked for Nguyen Phu Trong’s verbal message, and expressed that CPV Central Committee and General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong respectively sent ebullient congratulatory messages on the convening of the 19th CPC National Congress and my re-election as General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee, and sent a special envoy to specially visit China to extend congratulations just after the conclusion of the Congress, which embodied the friendship between both parties as well as showed that the Vietnamese side highly values China-Viet Nam relations.
Xi Jinping stressed that at present, socialism with Chinese characteristics has entered a new era, and the cause of socialist construction and reform in Viet Nam has also entered a crucial period. At the 19th CPC National Congress, I proposed to remain true to our original aspiration and keep our mission firmly in mind, which is the same to develop China-Viet Nm relations. The original aspiration refers to bilateral traditional friendship personally fostered and elaborately cultivated by the older generation leaders of both parties and both countries, and the mission is the two parties’ common ideal and faith as well as the historical responsibility we shoulder. Both as the ruling party of a socialist country, the CPC and the CPV should view China-Viet Nam relations from a higher perspective and at a deeper level, and unswervingly push forward the building of a community of common destiny with strategic significance. The new leading group of the CPC Central Committee will continue upholding its friendly policy toward Viet Nam as always, and make joint efforts with the leading group of the CPV Central Committee led by General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong to strengthen political guidance for bilateral relations, deepen strategic communication, enhance political mutual trust, implement important consensus, and properly handle relevant issues, so as to push China-Viet Nam relations for constant, healthy and stable development.
On behalf of the CPV Central Committee and Nguyen Phu Trong, Hoang Binh Quan expressed that the 19th CPC National Congress is a joyful event for the CPC as well as for the CPV. The Vietnamese side eagerly looks forward to getting an in-depth understanding of the spirit of the 19th CPC National Congress and of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era. The CPV Central Committee stands ready to make concerted efforts with the new leading group of the CPC Central Committee with General Secretary Xi Jinping at the core to elevate Viet Nam-China relations in the new era to new highs.
