The Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Investment and Development of Vietnam (BIDV) on November 14 offered ten computers and two printers to the Laos News Agency (KPL) to support its news coverage.

On behalf of KPL’s executive board, Sounthon Khanthavong highly valued the support of BIDV for the Lao press in general and KPL in particular, saying that the assistance will contribute to improving the press quality as well as professional knowledge.

Speaking at the event, Duong Van Phuong, head of the BIDV branch in Laos , thanked KPL for accompanying the bank in social activities here.

Since 2005, BIDV has involved in various social welfare activities in Laos , donating nearly 10 million USD to the country’s poverty reduction and human resource training programmes.
