Vice Chairwoman of the National Assembly (NA) Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan has stressed the need to enhance cooperation, information sharing and mutual support between the committees of the legislative bodies of Vietnam and Laos.

She made the statement during a January 9 meeting with a visiting delegation from the Lao NA Committee for Economy, Finance and Planning led by Souvangpheng Boupphanouvong.

Praising the delegation’s visit to Vietnam , the NA Vice Chairwoman said the activity is needed to further strengthen the partnership between the two assemblies and allowing them to realise their previously signed agreements.

She lauded the outcomes of the working session between the delegation and the NA’s Committees for Finance-Budget and Economy, saying that such practical results will help accelerate the ties between the two legislative bodies and the neighbours as well.

Boupphanouvong, who is also member of the Lao NA Standing Committee, said during the working session between the delegation and Vietnamese counterparts, the two sides agreed that their cooperation has been effective over the past years.

In the coming time, they will focus on exchanging experience on financial and budgetary affairs, the building of expense regulations and budget management and investment on capital construction, she noted.

She also voiced hope that more opportunities will be created for her committee and the NA’s Economic Committee of Vietnam to meet and boost cooperation, while speeding up the implementation of the signed agreements in order to further foster the special ties between Vietnam and Laos.-VNA
