The project is implemented on the basis of the agreement between the Governments of Vietnam and Laos on regulations on finance and management of projects funded by Vietnam’s non-refundable aid.
Under the MoU, the school will have two 2-storey buildings with eight classrooms each, with total floor area of 1,350 sq.m. Each classroom will be able to accommodate about 30-35 students. By 2020, the school will be able to accommodate 1,000 students at middle and high school-level education.
The school will also include a multi-purpose building, an administrative building, a library, a dormitory and other facilities serving teaching and learning activities.
The Lao side is responsible for allocating land for the project and paying compensation for land clearance; ensuring security at the project area; and providing information needed for the project.
Meanwhile, the Vietnamese side will select contractors that provide consultancy, construction and purchasing services in accordance with laws. It is tasked to direct the consultancy service provider to produce a design for the school and arrange capital disbursement.
