Local and international media were still hung up on how Vietnam’s Communist Government and market economy resolved possible conflicts during their second day in HCMC yesterday.

HCMC’s Communist Party leader Nguyen Minh Triet assured a Bangladeshi reporter that the ruling Communist Party wants Vietnam to join the World Trade Organization.

“Party leaders are trying hard to boost the private sector,” Triet said. “No obstacles exist against privatization, with the number of private companies soaring recently.”

Triet also told an Agence France-Presse reporter at the meeting at the Reunification Palace ahead of the 30th anniversary of Saigon’s liberation on April 30 that Vietnam-U.S. relations were improving.

He said Vietnam is looking to strengthen ties, solving existing disputes. Vietnam also welcomes American war veterans and overseas Vietnamese.

“Vietnam leaves the past behind and looks to the future,” he said. “We expect the United States to facilitate cooperation.”

Triet also gave a positive outlook on the lives of ethnic minorities in the Central Highlands, saying their living conditions have improved a lot with everyone getting access to education and health care.

“The Government has been providing Central Highlanders with special assistance in their businesses,” he said.

But, Triet added, conditions vary from place to place in Vietnam as in all other countries.

On Tuesday media met HCMC chairman Le Thanh Hai, who spoke about Vietnam’s progress.
