Update: August, 24/2012 - 10:01

HA NOI — Viet Nam would do its best to help Laos organise important diplomatic events, especially the upcoming seventh ASEAN-Europe Parliamentary Meeting (ASEP-7) and the ninth Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM-9).

National Assembly (NA) Deputy Chairwoman Tong Thi Phong stated this while receiving a delegation from the Lao National Assembly's Economic and Finance Committee led by Chairwoman Dr Souvanpheng Bouphanouvong in Ha Noi yesterday.

Viet Nam's NA had set up delegations of experienced experts to work with their Lao counterparts to complete the preparations for ASEP-7, and to organise ASEM-9, as well as other important events this year, said Phong.

Souvanpheng Bouphanouvong said that because of Viet Nam's experience, Laos was keen to learn about how Viet Nam negotiated its entry to the WTO.

She said she hoped that Viet Nam would continue to help Laos hold similar events in the future. — VNS
