The fourth forum for youth from the Development Triangle countries of Cambodia , Laos and Vietnam (CLV) opened in the Central Highlands province of Kon Tum on Dec. 5 with the theme “Solidarity – Cooperation – Development.”

During the three-day forum, 70 delegates representing the youth of the three countries will discuss three key topics: measures to boost cooperation among young businesspeople in the development triangle region; the role of young people in maintaining borderlines of peace, friendship, cooperation and development; and the role of the young people in building rural areas following the new model.

Addressing the forum, the heads of the Cambodian and Lao delegations stressed that this is a good chance for young people from the three countries to enhance their traditional friendship established and cultivated by the three countries’ leaders and peoples. This is also an opportunity to strengthen the cooperation among youths from the development triangle to a new height, the heads noted.

At the end of the forum, which is under the framework of the 8 th Joint Coordination Committee Meeting of the Development Triangle of Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam, a Memorandum of Understanding will be signed on cooperation activities in the time to come./.VNA
