Ever since Vietnam entered a period of implementing the model of market-oriented economic socialist economy, Ho Chi Minh City-the largest city in the country-has achieved outstanding results and achievements, and become a source of major contribution to the national budget.


On his part, Vice President of Cuba Marino Murillo Jorge said that Cuba wants to learn from Ho Chi Minh City’s experience and   approach to the economic renewal process.


In a meeting yesterday with Mr. Dua, the senior Cuban official said his delegation was interested in the city’s experience in building economic models, especially relating to single member limited liability companies.


He also expressed his wish to learn from the city’s expertise in accelerating State-owned enterprises into public limited companies.


Mr. Dua congratulated Cuba on the success of the 6th Congress of the Communist Party of Cuba, expressing his belief that the Cuban Party and people would successfully implement the Congress’ resolutions.


During their stay, the Cuban delegation visited several successful business houses in Ho Chi Minh City.
