Politburo member and Secretary of the Hanoi Municipal Party Committee Dinh Tien Dung made the statement while hosting a reception in Hanoi on August 9 for Secretary of the Party Committee of Vientiane and Chairman of the Vientiane People’s Council Anouphap Tounalom.

Speaking at the meeting, Secretary Dinh Tien Dung reviewed the important cooperation milestones between Hanoi and Vientiane in recent years, especially the memorandum of understanding on bilateral cooperation between the two cities for the 2022-2025 period that was signed in April 2022.

He stated that, right after the signing, the Hanoi Municipal Party Committee focused on leading and directing agencies, departments, branches, districts, and towns in the city to thoroughly understand, study and develop plans in order to realise the contents of the cooperation agreement between the two capitals.

Many initiatives on bilateral cooperation in the fields of economy and culture have been proposed and deployed.

For his part, the Lao official expressed his hope that the two cities will continue to facilitate singed agreement as well as high-level exchanges to share party building experience, improve state management and create favourable conditions for ties between their two people’s councils.

He proposed that the two sides continue to encourage their economic sectors to reinforce ties across economy, culture, education and science to encourage breakthrough progress, especially in signed projects.
