Addressing the event, Vietnamese Minister of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs Dao Ngoc Dung underlined the pragmatic and effective cooperation between Vietnam and Laos in all fields, including the affiliation between the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs of Vietnam (MoLISA) and the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs of Laos (MLSA).

He appreciated the Lao side’s coordination in accepting Vietnamese labourers to work on projects in Laos, as well as the affiliation between the two ministries in opening an orthopaedics and rehabilitation centre in Can village, Vientiane, Laos, in December 2015.

Dung also talked about the MoLISA’s scholarships in labour and social welfare for the Lao side, their delegation exchanges, and cooperation in human resource development, especially in border areas.

The Vietnamese minister thanked the MLSA and the other relevant agencies of Laos for their close coordination in searching for the remains of Vietnamese volunteer soldiers who sacrificed their lives in Laos, saying that he hopes the two sides will further their cooperation through the exchange of delegations, experience sharing and personnel training.

Dung’s views were echoed by his Lao counterpart Khampheng Saysompheng, who said that the partnership between the two ministries should be deepened across all fields.

Under the minutes of the fifth Vietnam-Laos Ministerial Conference on Cooperation in Labour and Social Welfare, the two sides agreed to accelerate the implementation of the Vietnam-Laos labour cooperation agreement signed in 2013.

They will also coordinate with the two countries’ defence ministries and concerned agencies to repatriate the remains of Vietnamese volunteer soldiers and experts, as well as Lao soldiers who died during the war in Vietnam.

Meanwhile, the two sides will intensify experience sharing and continue their cooperation in personnel training.

The sixth conference will be held in Laos in 2019.
