Shortly after his arrival in this capital, Morales met with Masters Luis Mario Zamora, who for four years has been teaching Spanish language at the National University of Laos, and Felipe Fonseca, a boxing coach who has been working in this nation for only two months.
The senior party leader, who was accompanied by Cuban Ambassador Enna Viant, was interested in the characteristics and conditions of both collaborators’ work, as well as the experiences acquired in their performance. At the same time, he informed them about his tour of three socialist countries in Asia: China, Laos and Vietnam.
Morales stressed the importance of ties between parties to boost bilateral cooperation in various areas, including trade and investment, and particularly referred to the First Theoretical Seminar for the exchange of experiences and current practices between the PCC and the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party (LPRP).
The communist leader and his delegation will have a busy agenda here over the weekend, starting on Saturday, with a courtesy visit to the secretary general of the president of the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Thongloun Sisoulith.
Afterwards, Morales will meet with the permanent member of the PPRL Secretariat and vice president of the nation, Bounthong Chitmany, with whom he will sign a Cooperation Exchange Agreement between the two parties for the 2023-2028 period.
On Saturday afternoon, both leaders will preside over the theoretical seminar, at the end of which there will be a meeting between the National Academy of Politics and Public Administration of Laos and the PCC Ñico Lopez Higher School.
Morales will also receive the member of the PPRL Political Bureau and Secretariat and vice president of the Lao National Assembly, Chaeun Yiapaoher.
Meanwhile, the first secretary of Cuba’s National Committee of the Young Communist League (UJC), Aylin Alvarez, will meet with her counterpart of the Lao People’s Revolutionary Youth Union, Monexay Laomoaxong, and will also be decorated with the Youth Medal.
Sunday’s agenda includes courtesy visits to the President of the Lao National Assembly, Saysomphone Phomvihane, and Prime Minister Sonexay Siphandone, which will conclude the third and last day of Morales’ visit to this Southeast Asian nation.
