Vientiane (VNA) – A delegation from the Vietnamese Embassy in Laos led Minister-Counsellor Nguyen Thanh Tung on March 29 presented 20 computer sets to Nguyen Du Lao-Vietnamese bilingual school as gifts from Party General Secretary and President Nguyen Phu Trong.

Principal of the school Pham Xuan Phan thanked the Vietnamese leader for paying great attention to the school. He pledged that he, teachers and staff of the school will work harder to complete their tasks, turning the school into a model in education quality, and contributing to reinforcing and developing the special solidarity between Vietnam and Laos.

Phan promised that the computers will be used effectively for teaching and studying activities.
