At the site, Vietnamese Deputy Construction Minister Le Quang Hung reported that after more than one year of construction, many items of the project are about to be completed under the supervision of Vietnamese and Japanese experts.
NA Chairwoman Ngan emphasised the project’s political and diplomatic significance, and described it as a symbol of the great friendship, special solidarity and comprehensive cooperation between Vietnam and Laos.
The construction must be finished and handed over to the Lao side at the end of 2020, ahead of the 11th National Party Congress of Laos scheduled in 2021, the top legislator said.
She spoke highly of the close coordination between Vietnamese and Lao relevant agencies and units during the construction, and urged them to seriously follow the design as well as regulations on technologies and safety.
While in Laos, the top legislator visited Vientiane province on September 28 where she met provincial Governor Khamphan Sitthidumpha.
Ngan rejoiced at major achievements the province has recorded across spheres over the past time, and praised cooperation outcomes between Vientiane and Vietnamese localities, especially in personnel training, education and production.
Vietnamese localities stand ready to cooperate with their Lao counterparts, including Vientiane province, she said.

She suggested Vientiane expand and improve cooperation efficiency with Hai Phong city, Hai Duong, Yen Bai and Nghe An provinces, and other localities of Vietnam, particularly in education-training, personnel training and goods production in service of export, while promoting start-up programmes in Vientiane’s villages to diversify its products.
Ngan said her visit aims to consolidate the great friendship, special solidarity and comprehensive cooperation between Vietnamese and Lao Parties, States and peoples, and promote the bilateral legislative ties.
For his part, Khamphan Sitthidumpha thanked the support of the Vietnamese Party and State to Laos and Vientiane province in particular, saying the mutual support and collaboration will deepen the Vietnam-Laos relationship.
On this occasion, Ngan and her encourage paid tribute to Vietnamese and Lao soldiers at the Laos-Vietnam Combat Alliance Monument in Vientiane province’s Keun village, about 70 km north of Vientiane capital city.
