Laos news agency KPL held a workshop in Vientiane on Jan. 7 to review achievements and discuss future orientation on the occasion of its 43rd founding day (Jan. 6, 1968).

Over the last 43 years, KPL has developed from a small news agency with over 10 reporters and technicians to a larger one with more than 100 reporters, editors and technicians.

On the occasion, KPL’s board of leaders expressed thanks to the Vietnamese Party, Government and people, especially the Vietnam News Agency (VNA), for their assistance over the past years.

They said they hoped to receive continued assistance from VNA, particularly in personnel training and technical infrastructure improving so that KPL is able to meet the increasing demand for information, contributing to fostering the Vietnam-Laos special friendship./.
