– Experiences by senior leaders of friendly
countries, especially Vietnam, are precious lessons and also hold great
importance, General Director of the Lao News Agency (KPL) Khampheuy Philapha said while talking about the

Over the past few days, KPL publications
have posted the full writing, translated into Lao and English, on some
theoretical and practical issues on socialism and the path to socialism in
Vietnam by General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Central Committee Nguyen Phu
In an interview with the Vietnam News
Agency, Philapha said the publication of this article in the Lao language helps
readers understand the theoretical and practical issues of the path to
socialism in Vietnam, noting that both countries are persistent in the Marxism -
Leninism, which is the theoretical foundation for their national construction and
development towards socialism.
The article showed that national independence associated with
socialism is the fundamental and consistent policy of the Vietnamese revolution
and also the vital point of late President Ho Chi Minh’s ideology.
It also indicated that the CPV’s policies and goals, including
building a political system of the people, by the people, and for the people,
are the most appropriate ones, according to the KPL leader.
He expressed his delight that over the past years, Vietnam
has obtained all-round achievements in developing a socialist-oriented market
economy. It is a fact that during its “Doi moi” (Renewal) period, the
socialist-oriented market economy in the country has gathered sufficient
factors of a market economy under international standards.
He held that over 35 years of “Doi moi”, Vietnam has attained
a number of important, comprehensive, and fundamental achievements in all fields,
particularly in economic development, thus greatly helping to promote its role, stature and voice in the region and the world.
The implementation of the “Doi moi” policy has helped build a
socialist-oriented market economy that is a modern market economy integrated
into the region and the world while operating in line with the market mechanism under the State’s management via the legal system and under the CPV’s
leadership for the sake of “rich people, strong nation, and democratic, equitable,
and civilised society”, which is evidenced by the economic statistics cited in the
article, Philapha went on.
He noted in the current development trend, countries around
the world, including Vietnam, are all facing opportunities for as well as
challenges to their development.
Under the CPV’s clear-sighted leadership and with the Vietnamese
people’s solidarity and consensus, the country will achieve the targets set for
the building of socialism imbued with the Vietnamese identity, the KPL General
He also expressed his belief that the traditional relations,
special solidarity, and comprehensive cooperation between Laos and Vietnam will
stay strong forever./.
