The Lao Ministry of Public Security wrapped up the first Vietnamese language course for its officers on August 13.

Twenty-eight Lao officers were enrolled in the six-month course, which aimed to enhance the efficiency of professional information sharing between the two countries. They were assessed as fairly fluent in Vietnamese communication skills after its conclusion.

Colonel Bouavan Vongsavanthong, Deputy General Director of the Lao ministry’s General Department of Security, thanked the Vietnamese Embassy and the Laos-based representative office of the Vietnamese Ministry of Public Security for helping organise the course.

The training was intended to improve the knowledge and language skills of Lao officers towards strengthening information exchange coordination between the two sides, contributing to amity, solidarity and comprehensive cooperation between the nations, he noted.

Also at the closing ceremony in Vientiane, Vietnamese Ambassador to Laos Nguyen Manh Hung promised to continue working with the Vietnamese representative office to open more Vietnamese courses, thus fostering relations between the two neighbours.-VNA
