The editorial highlighted that 76 years ago, Viet Nam was a small country but under the leadership of the Communist Party of Viet Nam and with steadfast will and determination, it has become a developing one.

It stressed that Viet Nam's socialist-oriented market economy is developing strongly, with the business and investment environment becoming more and more stable, adding the country's position and role is increasingly enhanced in the international arena.

The newspaper noted that Viet Nam and countries around the world are having to deal with the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, under the timely direction of the Party and State and the people's cooperation and solidarity, Viet Nam has achieved many important results in the fight as well as in socio-economic development.

Viet Nam has provided medical equipment, supplies and financial support to 51 countries and international organisations to cope with the pandemic, the newspaper noted, highlighting that Viet Nam has also received timely support in medical supplies and finance from many countries and international organisations to effectively carry out COVID-19 prevention and control work in the country.

The editorial stressed that Viet Nam successfully organised the 13th National Party Congress, and the election of the 15th National Assembly and People's Councils at all levels in 2021.

It went on to highlight the close friendship between Viet Nam and Laos, saying the two nations are not only closely linked in geography, but also share the history of their peoples fighting side by side and overcoming all difficulties and challenges to regain independence and freedom. The Viet Nam-Laos relationship has become a rare model of bilateral relations in the world, the editorial said.

At a recent bilateral meeting with General Secretary and President of Laos Thongloun Sisoulith on the occasion of President Nguyen Xuan Phuc's official friendship visit to Laos, the two sides reaffirmed their goal of tightening and developing friendly relations.

The article congratulated Viet Nam on the 76th anniversary of National Day and wished for lasting friendship, special solidarity and comprehensive cooperation between Viet Nam and Laos.
