Lao NA Vice Chairman visits Danang

VOV.VN - Laos’ National Assembly Vice Chairman Bounpone Bouttanavong made a working visit to the central coastal city of Danang on August 21, as part of his August 19-24 trip to Vietnam.

Receiving the Lao guest, Secretary of the municipal Party Committee Truong Quang Nghia briefed him on the city’s socio-economic performance, its policies for tourism, high-tech agriculture and health services. 

Nghia said he hopes that Lao NA leaders would continue helping businesses and localities promote ties with Danang, thereby contributing to each side’s socio-economic development. 

Danang has so far signed cooperation agreements with five Lao localities, and provided an aid of roughly US$4.34 million to them. 

In reply, the Lao guest expressed his wish that Danang and Lao localities would step up cooperation, especially in tourism while affirming the Lao NA’s readiness to offer optimal conditions to enterprises and localities that hold partnerships with Vietnam’s central city, he said. 

He also voiced hope that Danang will provide further assistance for Lao businesses. 
The Lao delegation is due to make fact-finding tours of Danang Hi-Tech Park and Hoa Khanh industrial zone on August 22.
