QUẢNG BÌNH– Permanent Vice Chairman of the National Assembly Trần Thanh Mẫn hosted a reception for Secretary General of the National Assembly of Laos Pingkham Lasasimma in the central province of Quảng Bình on August 19.
Pingkham Lasasimma is in Việt Nam to attend a workshop and exchange programme between the Vietnamese NA Office and the Lao NA Secretariat.
Mẫn, who is also President of the Việt Nam-Laos Friendship Parliamentarians Group, said the workshop and exchange programme, the 11th of its kind, was of significance as it took place at a time when Việt Nam and Laos were focusing on the exchange of experience in law-making and supervision to boost post-COVID-19 socio-economic recovery.
It also helped to enhance cooperation between the NA offices of the two countries, he added.
He suggested the Vietnamese and Lao NA Secretaries General tighten their cooperation and work to boost the implementation of collaboration activities as agreed by their top legislators.
For her part, Pingkham Lasasimma expressed her hope that the Lao delegation would learn from the Vietnamese side’s experience, especially in information-technology application and giving policy and law consultancy in socio-economic affairs.
She used the occasion to thank Việt Nam, particularly the NA and its Office, for their support to the Party, State and people of Laos in various fields, including medical supplies for the COVID-19 combat and the sharing of experience in post-pandemic socio-economic recovery and NA House management.VNA/VNS
