VOV.VN - Vice Chairman of the National Assembly (NA) Do Ba Ty hailed high-level exchange visits between Vietnam and Laos in the first months of 2019 at a reception in Hanoi on July 4 for a delegation from the Lao NA’s Institute of Legislative Studies (ILS).

Ty cited the official friendly visit to Laos by Party General Secretary and President Nguyen Phu Trong in February, and the visit to Vietnam by Lao NA Chairwoman Pany Yathotou in early March, adding that the two law-making bodies also held seminars on the operations of local administrations, especially in land management, investment attraction, State budget management and tourism development, in Hanoi and the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong.

The host highlighted the Lao institute’s methods of information collection and provision, as well as experience in building brief reports and personnel training. 

He voiced his hope that the two legislative bodies will push ahead with closer coordination and the sharing of information and experience in law-making, supervision and decision-making on major national issues.

ILS Director Khampheuy Panemalaythong briefed his host on the outcomes of working sessions between the Lao delegation and the Vietnamese NA’s Committee for Deputy Affairs and Legal Research Institute and called for Vietnam’s assistance and experience in equipping Lao NA deputies with professional skills. 

The Lao official pledged his best efforts to further foster relations between the legislatures and their agencies, as well as the Vietnam-Laos special solidarity.
