Vientiane (VNA) –Nearly 100 Vietnamese alumni and over 60 teachers at the National University of Laos (NUL) gathered in Vientiane on October 6.

The event was meant to celebrate the 23rd anniversary of Lao Teachers’ Day (October 7), the 55th anniversary of Vietnam-Laos diplomatic ties (September 5), the 40th anniversary of the signing of the Vietnam-Laos Treaty of Amity and Cooperation (July 18).

Speaking at the event, chief representative of the Vietnam Rubber Corporation in Laos and a former student of the 1986-1989 course Duong Dinh Bang said over the past decades, generations of Vietnamese students have studied at the NUL and many other universities in Laos. Many graduates are holding important positions in Vietnamese ministries and agencies, or at representative offices of Vietnamese agencies and Vietnam-Laos joint-ventures in Laos.

On behalf of the former students, Bang pledged to do his best to foster traditional friendship, special solidarity and comprehensive cooperation between the two countries.
