At the reception, PM Phuc congratulated the Lao Party, State and people for their achievements recorded over the past time and expressed his belief that under the leadership of the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party, Laos will successfully implement the resolution of the Party’s 10th Congress.

He noted with pleasure the fruitfully developing traditional friendship, special solidarity and comprehensive cooperation between the two nations.

The Government leader highly valued the concrete cooperation outcomes between the two justice ministries, saying judicial collaboration is one of the most important contents in the bilateral ties.

Minister Xaysy Santivong said his visit aims to continue enhancing the cooperation between the two ministries. He informed the host that the two sides earlier had successful talks during which they exchanged experience in judicial activities in 2018.

The Lao Ministry of Justice’s today development is thanks to the wholehearted and valuable assistance of the Vietnamese Party, Government and justice ministry, he said, adding that his ministry is coordinating with the Lao Ministry of Foreign Affairs in supporting Vietnamese nationals living in Laos, especially in terms of legal papers.  

Appreciating Vietnam’s official development assistance (ODA) projects which help the Lao Ministry of Justice with personnel training, he affirmed that the two ministries will push forward closer and more effective coordination in the time ahead.

PM Phuc said that on the basis of the two countries’ special friendship and solidarity, Vietnam is ready to share with the Lao side lessons of both success and failure in its development process.

He said that institutional building is extremely important to the development of a country as it covers legal institutions, development policies, and management and monitoring work.

The leader instructed the Vietnamese Ministry of Justice to provide the best support for its Lao counterpart, not only at ministerial level but also lower levels. 

He asked the two ministries to effectively realise the agreement between the two Governments relating to the judicial field as well as the signed agreement on their cooperation for the 2015-2020.
