Vientiane (VNA) – Top leaders of Laos spoke highly of cooperation between the Inspection Commissions of the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party (LPRP) and the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Central Committees while receiving head of the CPV commission Tran Cam Tu in Vientiane on October 31.

Tu, who is also Secretary of the CPV Central Committee, was welcomed by LPRP General Secretary and President of Laos Bounnhang Vorachith and Prime Minister Thongloun Sisoulith. He has been on a working visit at the invitation of head of the LPRP Central Committee’s Inspection Commission Bounthong Chithmany, who is also Politburo member, Secretary of the LPRP Central Committee, Deputy Prime Minister, and Inspector General of the Lao Government’s Inspectorate.

At the meeting, the Vietnamese official conveyed his sympathy over heavy losses caused by the hydropower dam break in Attapeu province and by floods in some Lao provinces recently. He voiced his belief that under the LPRP’s leadership, those affected will soon be able to overcome the consequences, resume economic activities, and restabilise their lives.

Reporting on the outcomes of talks between the two inspection commissions earlier the same day, Tu said they reviewed bilateral cooperation outcomes and discussed cooperation directions for the coming time.

Accordingly, they agreed to push ahead with the current collaboration mechanism under their Parties’ cooperation plan for 2016-2021. The commissions will increase the exchange of experience in examining and monitoring the adherence to Party rules, executing disciplinary measures, fighting corruption, and building a contingent of personnel, he added.

Valuing the visit’s importance, the Lao leaders applauded the partnership between the two inspection agencies, asking them to enhance coordination and experience sharing so that bilateral ties become increasingly more effective in helping to perform tasks assigned by the Parties, States, and people of Laos and Vietnam.

They also asked the Vietnamese side to continue assisting Laos in training party inspection personnel.

LPRP General Secretary and President Bounnhang Vorachith and Prime Minister Thongloun Sisoulith also thanked the timely and enormous support of the Vietnamese Party, State, and people over the years, especially in aiding victims of the hydropower dam break in Attapeu province last July.
