Vietnam funds Lao museum upgrade

(VOV) -Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh Museum will implement a VND14 billion project to refurbish Laos’ Kaysone Phomvihane museum.

A document to this effect was signed in Laos’ capital Vientine on March 24.

The Vietnamese museum will help its Lao counterpart renovate the main hall, paint the museum, decorate the Lao cultural symbol, and refurbish the funeral showroom of the Lao President Kaysone Phomvihane.

The upgrade will ensure the future long-term operation of the museum.

The museum, built by non-refundable aid from the Vietnamese Government, is to honor  Laos’ great revolutionary leader Kaysone Phomvihane.
