The project is within the framework of a protocol on defence cooperation between the two ministries from 2015-2019.

Director of the Vietnam Defence Ministry’s Information Centre for Military Science Nguyen Kim Lam said the e-portal is completed at a significant time when Lao undertakes the role of ASEAN Chair in 2016.

Viengsay Somvichith, deputy chief of the Lao Defence Ministry’s Department of Military Science and History, pledged to make the best of the e-portal, contributing to disseminating the Party policies and State laws as well as Lao Defence Ministry’s activities.-VNA
