At a reception for Lao Prime Minister Thongloun Sisoulith in Hanoi on October 3, the Party leader called on the two governments to remove difficulties and obstacles so as to ensure the progress and quality of Vietnamese investment projects in Laos.

General Secretary Trong also stressed the need to improve the quality and efficiency of bilateral cooperation in regards to education-training and human resource development.

Apart from sharing information and experience in the Party building work, State and socio-economic management and the implementation of Party resolutions, Vietnam and Laos should step up collaboration in national defence, security and external affairs, he added.

The General Secretary spoke highly of PM Sisoulith’s visit to Vietnam, which takes place at a time when the two countries are celebrating the 55th anniversary of diplomatic ties and 40 years of the signing of the Vietnam-Laos Treaty of Amity and Cooperation.

The Party chief affirmed Vietnam’s strong and comprehensive support for the cause of reform, national defence and construction in Laos, expressing his belief that under the leadership of the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party, the management of the Government and the supervision of the National Assembly, the Lao people will reap greater achievements in the reform process.

For his part, PM Sisoulith asserted that the Lao Government will coordinate closely with its Vietnamese counterpart to instruct relevant ministries, agencies and localities on the effective implementation agreements reached by senior leaders of the two Parties and countries, as well as deals signed at the 39th meeting of the Vietnam-Laos Intergovernmental Committee, and carefully prepare for the 40th meeting of the committee.

The same day, PM Sisoulith and his entourage visited former Party General Secretaries Le Kha Phieu and Nong Duc Manh. They noted joyfully that the development of the Vietnam-Laos special solidarity and comprehensive cooperation, bringing practical benefits to their people and significantly contributing to national construction and defence in each country.

The two sides described the special relationship as an invaluable asset of the two Parties and nations, and a momentum for national construction and defence in each country, contributing to peace, stability, cooperation and development in the region and the world at large.

The relationship should be consolidated by the Parties, States and people of the two countries and handed down to younger generations, they said.
