Vietnamese and Lao Government Offices seek stronger cooperation

VOV.VN - Lao Prime Minister Thongloun Sisulith hosted a reception on July 19 for Minister-Chairman of the Government Office Mai Tien Dung and his delegation, during which he hailed the Vietnamese delegation’s visit as a contribution to deepening the special ties between the two nations.

The Lao PM asked the two Government Offices to continue working hand in hand in experience sharing and personnel training in order to provide good consultancy for their Governments and Prime Ministers.

He said he hopes that Vietnam will share with his nation its experience in developing e-Government and suggested the Government Offices work together in building a project regarding the field.

Earlier, the Vietnamese officials held talks with a delegation from the Lao Government Office led by Minister-Chairman Phet Phomphiphak who said the talks aim to tighten the time-honoured friendship, special solidarity and all-around cooperation between the two countries in general and the two Government Offices in particular.
He suggested the two offices step up their multifaceted cooperation to promptly provide consultancy for their governments, especially at a time when the region and the world are dealing with complicated developments.

Dung, for his part, suggested the two offices should work closely with ministries and localities in their respective countries with a major focus on cooperation to support the Governments and Prime Ministers in steering work.

After reviewing their organization of the implementation of agreements of the two countries’ leaders as well as cooperative projects, they consented to maintain meetings and relations between the offices’ leaders to improve their consultancy service.

The offices will intensify the exchange and update of information, organize more thematic seminars, and work closely with the Ministries of Planning and Investment and cooperation committees to consult Government leaders in cooperative tasks.

Minister Mai Tien Dung and his Lao counterpart Phet Phomphiphak signed the minutes on cooperation plan for 2020-2021 between the two Government Offices after their talks.
