Vietnam will continue to help train archivists for the Lao side, as part of an MoU on cooperation for 2015 between the State Records and Archives Department of Vietnam and Laos’ National Archives Department.

The document was inked on August 18 in Vientiane.

Under the agreement, the two sides will continue working with relevant agencies on a project to build a national archives insurance centre in Luang Prabang, Laos using the Vietnamese Government’s annual aid to Laos, with the aim of submitting the project to the two Governments.

They will also ask for the two governments’ permission for a plan on cooperation in building and sharing lists of archived history-related documents.

Both pledged to continue creating favourable conditions for their experts and officials to exchange professional skills and information, and participate in seminars and symposiums in order to improve their capacity.-VNA
