The facility will be a symbol of the traditional friendship and special solidarity between Vietnam and Laos, she stressed.

For his part, Xayalath said his ongoing visit to Vietnam aims to tighten the relations between Vietnamese and Lao Parties, States and peoples.

He conveyed the best regards from Lao top legislator Pany Yathotou to NA Chairwoman Ngan.

The guest also shared Laos’ socio-economic situation in the first six months of 2018 as well as the country’s efforts to reform administrative procedures and realise socio-economic development targets in the remainder of this year, especially exports and small-scale industry.

He highlighted the sound development between Vietnam and Laos over the recent past, referring to the celebration of the 40th anniversary of the signing of the Vietnam-Laos Treaty of Amity and Cooperation and the 55th anniversary of the establishment of the bilateral diplomatic ties in 2017.
