A delegation from the CPV Central Committee’s Commission for Popularisation and Education (CPE) led by its head Dinh The Huynh began a four-day working visit to Laos on Sept. 29.

The delegation paid a courtesy visit to Laos Vice State President Bounnhang Vorachith, who spoke highly of the effective cooperation between the Commission for Propaganda and Training (CPT) of the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party (LPRP) Central Committee and the CPE in various fields.

Vorachith, who is also a Politburo member and standing member of the LPRP Central Committee Secretariat, expressed his wish that the two sides will coordinate in disseminating the two countries’ achievements, especially their struggles for national independence and the Vietnam-Laos special relations.

The two sides should strengthen cooperation and experience exchange in Party building work, he added.

For his part, Huynh affirmed that the CPE will enhance multifaceted cooperation with the CPT, helping to foster the special relationship between the two nations.

Earlier, the Vietnamese delegation held talks with the Head of the Laos Commission for Propaganda and Training, Chueang Sombounkhan, during which the two sides signed a cooperative agreement for the 2011-2015 period.

Under the agreement, the two sides agreed to popularise important political events between the two countries, especially the Year of Vietnam-Laos Friendship and Solidarity 2012, helping to bring the Vietnam-Laos traditional friendship, special solidarity and comprehensive cooperation to a new height.

The CPE will assist the Lao commission in training personnel and building a website for its magazine./.
