During the workshop, Mr. Louis Lang, a representative from the Communist Party of Canada, said that the workshop created an opportunity to learn about the role of the CPV in the modern society and the gathering of people to solve social matters.
According to Mr. Lang, the people-to-people relations between Vietnam and Canada have been reinforced through respective visits and bilateral cooperation in different areas, particularly the remarkable contributions of Vietnamese students in Canada.
Vietnam is among countries with high and stable economic growth in Asia while its position has continuously strengthened on the international arena. Talking with Vietnam News Agency, Philip Fernandez, a member of the Canada-Vietnam Friendship Society (CVFS) and the Communist Party of Canada, has affirmed the indispensible leadership role of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) in the country’s achievements.
“Vietnam’s increasing prestige and position in the international arena demonstrate the political strength and ideology of the CPV, as well as its ingenious ability to seek ways to deal with the current complicated international situation, which aroused people’s trust,” he said. “The international trust in CPV was reflected when Vietnam was elected a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council for 2020-2021 with an almost unanimous vote."
Participants at the workshop expressed their impression and admiration seeing documents highlighting the glorious milestones of the Vietnamese nation such as the founding of the CPV, the successful August Revolution in 1945, and the Dien Bien Phu Victory in 1954.
Portraits of President Ho Chi Minh and Vietnamese sceneries by Canadian artists Jean-Maurice Gélinas and Guy Lapierre were put on display at the workshop.
Works featuring the Great Spring Victory of 1975 and the Dien Bien Phu Victory in 1954 were also showcased to help Canadian friends better understand the leadership role of the CPV in the cause of national liberation, reunification, building and defence./.
