Meanwhile, NA Vice Chairwoman Tong Thi Phong stated that from one of the poorest localities of Vietnam, Quang Nam has risen to one of the most developed, with ensured security and defence.

She further added that Quang Nam is a bright example in fostering ties with Laos, with all-round ties with Sekong and Champasak.
