Hanoi will continue financing the construction of the Vientiane Politics – Public Administration School’s dormitory.

The pledge was made in a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed by Chairman of the Hanoi People’s Committee Nguyen The Thao and visiting Secretary of the Vientiane Party Committee cum Vientiane Governor Soukanh Mahalath in Hanoi on August 26.

On the occasion, by authorisation of his Party and State leaders , Mahalath presented Lao State orders and medals to Thao and Hanoi’s experts for their assistance and contributions to Vientiane over the past time.

The Vientiane leader also expressed his deep gratitude to the practical assistance Hanoi’s officials and people have given to the Lao capital city over the years.

Hanoi and Vientiane have regularly exchanged delegations to share experience and bolster bilateral friendship and cooperation in business, culture, health and education.

The two capital cities successfully worked out many projects such as the Vientiane - Hanoi Friendship Vocational School in 2004 and the Vientiane Politics – Public Administration School in 2010, noted the Lao official.

Mahalath said he will continue to reinforce and strengthen the ties between the two cities.

For his part, Thao said his city will spare no effort to boost and expand the special friendship and comprehensive cooperation between the two countries in general and between Hanoi and Vientiane and other Lao localities in particular.-VNA
