Hanoi (VNA) – Deputy Secretary of the Hanoi Party’s Committee Dao Duc Toan hosted a reception for Lao President of the Vientiane Capital Federation of Trade Unions, Kenkham Hotthilath, in Hanoi on August 2.

At the meeting, Deputy Secretary Toan said as a political and economic hub that attracts many labourers, Hanoi has been working to develop its trade unions with more than 7,500 locally-based trade unions.

Toan hoped that the visit of Kenkham Hotthilath, who is also member of the Vientiane Capital Party Committee, would further nurture cooperation between the two capitals.

Ken Hotthilath noted that the visit provides an opportunity for the two cities to discuss future collaboration in trade union affairs.

He also briefed his host on the recent signing of an agreement between the Vientiane Capital Federation of Trade Unions and the Hanoi Federation of Labour for the 2016-2020 term.

He said he looks forward to continued support from Hanoi in organising trade unions.-VNA
