Particularly, during the 35 years implementing the renewal policy, the Lao Party, State and people have gained great and historically significant achievements in various fields, contributing to increasing the prestige and position of the country and the LPRP on the international arena, it said.

The Vietnamese Party took the occasion to express the sincere and deep gratitude for the great, precious, righteous and effective assistance that the Lao Party, State and people have given to Vietnam in recent times.
