Hanoi (VNA) – President of the Vietnam Women’s Union (VWU) Nguyen Thi Thanh Hoa hosted a courtesy meeting with Chairwoman of the Lao Women’s Union (LWU) Inlavan Keobuonphanh in Hanoi on April 6.

The VWU President said the visit helps bolster the traditional friendship and special bonds between the two Parties, States, people and women.

At the meeting, the two women’s leaders highlighted the joint progress made in improving the lives of women in the two countries, and the outcomes of the cooperative agreement phase 2012-2017 between the two unions.

In recent years, the programme has gained significant achievements in all levels. The VWU has supported and cooperated with the LWU in many areas, including female official training, credit development, and fighting cross-border human trafficking.

The Lao official thanked the Vietnamese Party, State and the VWU for their warm support and hoped to receive such support again in economic development and international integration.
