Son La (VNA) – A delegation from the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union (HCM CYU) - Son La chapter and that of the Lao People's Revolutionary Youth Union - Houaphanh and Sayaboury chapters held talks in Son La northwestern border province on November 23.

At the event, the two sides briefed each other on activities of the unions and youth development over the years. 

Secretary of the Son La HCM CYU Vang A La said the chapter has paid due attention to international youth development, focusing on communication work to raise members’ awareness of international integration, especially with nine northern localities of Laos that Son La has formed cooperative ties with.

During the talks, delegates also discussed the role of youth unions in support of youth’s participation in the socio-economic development of their localities.
