The Lao Party, State and people are extremely grateful to Vietnam for its comprehensive support of the country over the past time, especially in human resources training, Prime Minister Thongsinh Thammavong said on April 24.

The Lao Prime Minister made the statement during a reception for former Vietnamese teachers, who provided education for many generations of Lao students in the past.

The host also recalled the time when he lived and studied in Vietnam.

He said that apart from educating a large number of Lao students, Vietnam also sent many experts to Laos to assist the country’s education development.

At present, Vietnam still continues supporting his country in the field, contributing significantly to its national construction and development, the Lao PM added.

Vietnamese guests said they will continue to educate Vietnamese and Lao generations on the traditional friendship and special solidarity between the two countries.-VNA
