Hanoi (VNA) – The Vietnam Post Corporation will help the Lao Post Corporation with digital transformation and application of digital platforms to postal services, General Director of the Vietnamese firm Chu Quang Hao said on October 10.

Meeting a visiting delegation of the Lao Ministry of Technology and Communications led by Minister Boviengkham Vongdara in Hanoi, he said as digital services and e-commerce will boom in the time ahead, the two corporations will step up collaboration in e-commerce shipping.

In particular, Vietnam Post will boost advertising and selling specialties of Laos on its e-commerce platform, he added.

Chairman of Vietnam Post Nguyen Hai Thanh said on the 60th anniversary of the countries’ diplomatic ties last September, Vietnam Post and Lao Post signed a cooperation agreement.
