JCP and CPV hold 9th theoretical exchange session

December 4, 2019

A Japanese Communist Party delegation and its Vietnamese counterpart on December 3 held their ninth theoretical exchange session at the JCP head office in Tokyo.

At the outset, Fuwa Tetsuzo, head of the JCP delegation and director of the JCP-affiliated Social Sciences Institute, reminisced on his first encounter with the CPV in February 1966 at a meeting with Ho Chi Minh in Hanoi during the U.S. war of invasion.

Fuwa recalled that they had agreed upon the need for an international united front to support Vietnam against the U.S. aggression and that he had also visited a frontline town and interacted with local people. He said, "Our comradeship with your party was built during that difficult time."

CPV delegation chief Nguyen Xuan Thang, secretary of the CPV Central Committee and chairman of the Central Theoretical Council, thanked Fuwa for his words of welcome. Solidarity developed during the time of the anti-U.S. national salvation war which provided the solid foundation of development of relations between the two parties. He said that the theoretical exchanges with the JCP have always been effective and expressed his hope that the exchange this time will be meaningful and successful as well.

Fuwa told Thang that the JCP will have its 28th Congress in January 2020 and the JCP Program will be partially revised. He explained changes in the stipulation of "countries aiming at socialism", "structural changes" in the world, the crisis of global capitalism, and the significance and responsibility of revolutionary movements in highly developed capitalist countries.

Thang talked about the present situation of country-building in Vietnam in line with the Doi Moi policy which aims at creating a socialist-oriented market economy in the rapidly changing world and region. He also talked about the Vietnamese efforts to strike a balance between international integration and maintaining its independence and autonomy.
