VIENTIANE (VNS)— The Lao National Publishing House received a new office building yesterday as a gift from Viet Nam's National Political Publishing House.
Nguyen Duy Hung, editor-in-chief of the Vietnamese publisher, said the offices would improve the Lao publishing house's operating effectiveness, helping it spread information about Party progress and State policies.
Located in the centre of Vientiane, the four-storey building is also intended to represent the friendship between the two Parties and States of Viet Nam and Laos, according to Lao information, culture and tourism vice minister Buangeun Saphouvong.
