A dialogue for exchanging experiences between the People’s Council of central Quang Tri province and a Lao delegation of National Assembly (NA) deputies in Savannakhet was organised on April 17.

The Vietnamese side reported that provincial groups of NA deputies closely associate with local People’s Councils to act as extensions of State power to ensure the effective implementation of the national Constitution, laws and State policies at local levels.

The two provinces have held a number of bilateral dialogues over the years to strengthen and develop their relationship. In addition, communities and authorities in border areas have worked together in an effort to maintain security and prevent crime.

Such collaborative works have nurtured the mutual trust and understanding between the two localities and their people, reflected in practical outcomes.

Earlier, the Lao delegation laid a floral tribute at the Quang Tri Citadel and visited several other historical sites to learn about the province’s culture and people.-VNA
