 Thuong, who is also Politburo member and Secretary of the CPVCC, made the statement during a meeting with General Secretary of the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party (LPRP) Central Committee and President of Laos Bounnhang Volachith in Vientiane on July 25 during his trip to the country to attend the sixth theoretical workshop between the two Parties. 

He congratulated Laos on its important achievements after two years of implementing the Resolution adopted by the 10th National Party Congress, believing that under the leadership of the LPRP, the Lao people will continue to gain new and greater successes in the renovation process, towards successfully holding the 11th National Party Congress. 

On behalf of Vietnamese Party, State leaders, and people, Thuong extended profound condolences to the Lao counterparts over losses caused by the recent hydropower dam collapse and expressed his belief that the Lao people in affected areas will soon be able to overcome the incident, restore production, and stabilise their lives. 

The Vietnamese official informed the host about the outcomes of the workshop between the two Parties, saying that both sides discussed the achievements, shortcomings, and lessons in the ideological work, and proposed measures to improve it in the current context. 

He said the CPVCC’s Commission for Information and Education and the LPRP Central Committee’s Commission for Propaganda and Training will continue working closely together to realise the resolutions of each Party, raise public awareness of the Vietnam-Laos special ties, and prevent distorted allegations of hostile forces that aim to divide the bilateral relationship. 

Volachith, for his part, vowed to join hands with Vietnam to reinforce the special solidarity and everlasting ties between the two nations. 

According to the Lao leader, the ideological work is significant to Party-building and the workshop brought both sides a chance to enrich arguments about the ideological work during the renovation process in the two countries. 

The host wished that both sides would increase the sharing of information and topics of mutual concern in order to point out urgent issues in national construction and defence. 

He thanked Vietnamese leaders for conveying their sympathy over losses caused by the recent hydropower dam collapse, which he said, reflects the Vietnam-Laos special solidarity. 

Earlier on the same day, Thuong held a working session with head of the LPRP Central Committee’s Commission for Propaganda and Training Kikeo Khaykhamphithoune, during which they debated the information-education work and cooperation between the two commissions in the near future. 

They pledged to effectively realise the agreements made between the two Parties’ leaders, as well as the cooperation agreement between the two commissions for the 2016-2021 period. They also agreed to share information and experience in the information and education work, direct information and education agencies from the central to local levels to offer mutual support to successfully implement the resolutions of each Party. 

During the trip, Thuong is scheduled to visit Bolikhamxay province and hold a working session with the Vietnamese Embassy in Laos. 

Vice Chairman of the Central Theoretical Council Ta Ngoc Tan will hold a working session with Sonethanou Thammavong, Chairman of the Lao Academy of Social Sciences and Vice Chairman of the Lao National Council for Social Sciences.
