Vietnam and Laos will better educate their exchange students, especially those taking advanced degree courses, to meet the integration demand of both countries.

The agreement was reached by Deputy Minister of Education and Training Tran Quang Quy and Lao Deputy Minister of Education and Sports Kongsy Sengmany at a working session in Vientiane, Laos, on April 4.

In the coming time, both sides will also provide the best possible conditions for teachers who are sent to Laos to teach Vietnamese, while upgrading the Nguyen Du school in Vientiane into the first Vietnam-Laos bilingual school.

At the session, the two sides highly valued their close cooperation in training up a high-quality workforce and sharing experiences, thus reinforcing the bilateral cooperation in the field.

They voiced their pleasure at the increasing number of exchange students, adding that Vietnam currently has around 400 undergraduates in Laos. Vietnam has helped 13 schools in Laos build Vietnamese language curriculum.-VNA
