Vietnam wants to learn from China’s experience in management and development of ethnic minority people’s daily lives, said Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Thien Nhan. Mr Nhan made the statement while receiving deputy head of China’s national committee for ethnicity, Yang Chuan Tang, in Hanoi on April 22. Mr Nhan spoke highly of Mr Tang’s visit to Vietnam, which is aimed at increasing mutual understanding and promoting the exchange of high-ranking delegations between the two countries. The Chinese guest thanked the Vietnamese government and people for their assistance to earthquake victims in Sichuan province in 2008.
