The Ho Chi Minh Academy of Politics and Public Administration on December 23 held the closing ceremony for the training courses organised for popularisation officials and lecturers from politics and public administration schools of Laos .

Through the courses, Lao trainees were provided with new knowledge on theoretical research and popularisation work in Vietnam as well as studying and teaching skills at politics schools.

Participants became familiarised with Marxism-Leninism and Ho Chi Minh’s thoughts.

They also studied the leadership of the Communist Party of Vietnam and the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party, the two countries’ national defence, renewal and construction.

Along with studying at the academy, Lao participants made fact-finding tours to several localities in Vietnam to understand more about the country and its people.

The courses contributed to further strengthening the friendship and special cooperation between the two Parties, States and their people.-VNA
