Lao Prime Minister Thongsinh Thammavong received in Vientiane on January 22 a delegation of former Vietnamese educationists that worked in Laos before 1975.

Thammavong, himself once trained by Vietnamese educationalists, expressed his gratitude for the experts’ help that paved the way for his country’s education system.

He said he hopes they will continue to help younger generations from both countries understand the special friendship between Vietnam and Laos, in order to preserve and develop this invaluable fortune.-VNA
