Mai said Vietnam and Laos’ mass mobilization work share similarities, including having the same goal of ensuring legitimate rights and interests of citizens, improving their lives, and creating public consensus on the Party and State policies for sustainable socio-economic development.

She added that Vietnam focuses on upholding the role of the people and the entire political system, with the Vietnam Fatherland Front, socio-political organisations from the central to local levels as a core, in mass mobilization work.

Head of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Mass Mobilization Truong Thi Mai speaks at the reception.

Over the past years, the national target program on new rural development and the national target program on sustainable poverty reduction have reaped positive results thanks to contributions by residents in localities, she said.

According to her, mass mobilization in administrations is major activities of the commission because they directly work with citizens. Together with the government, the commission launched a program with six contents, including policy issuance and enforcement, socio-economic development, ensuring national defense-security and local lives, administrative reform, and settlement of citizens’ complaints.

Chanthavong Xenamatmonti, for his part, wished that Vietnam would continue sharing its experience in mass mobilization with Laos to contribute to socio-economic development.

He expressed his belief that the two countries will continue fostering special friendship and solidarity between their Parties, States and peoples.
