VIENTIANE — The chairman of the People's Committee of the central province of Ha Tinh, Vo Kim Cu, has asked the Lao government to help enterprises in the province expand their investment in Laos.
Cu, who just concluded yesterday a four-day working visit to Laos, presented the request to Lao Deputy Prime Minister Somsavat Lengsavath on Saturday. Cu said that 10 businesses from his province were already investing in Laos in rubber plantations and processing, barbed wire production and forestry.
Ha Tinh, which has also helped build schools in the neighbouring Lao provinces of Khammouane and Bolikhamsai, now wanted to boost commercial co-operation with them, Cu said.
Lengsavath also applauded Ha Tinh's support for Lao localities, especially in education, said he would assign provincial authorities in Khammouane and Bolikhamsai to study Ha Tinh's proposals to increase co-operation. — VNS
