A delegation from the Lao Women’s Union led by its President Sysay Leudedmuonsone is visiting the central city of Da Nang from June 7-9.

Receiving the delegation on June 7, Chairwoman of the Da Nang Women’s Union (DNWU) Do Thi Kim Linh briefed about the organisation’s recent achievements, especially in helping women in economic development, money saving and escaping from poverty.

In 2013 alone, the municipal union provided over 23 billion VND (1.1 million USD) in preferential credit for nearly 8,500 poor women, she said.

Leudedmuonsone expressed her wish that the Vietnam Women’s Union and the DNWU in particular will continue increasing cooperation and experience sharing with their Lao counterparts, thus contributing to promoting the traditional friendship between the two nations.-VNA
