HÀ NỘI — National Assembly Vice Chairman Phùng Quốc Hiển hosted a reception in Hà Nội on Thursday for Viengthong Siphandone, the President of Laos’s State Audit Organisation.
Hiển said he is pleased to see the development of a special relationship and comprehensive co-operation between the two countries.
He hailed the outcomes of co-operation between the two State audit agencies over the past years, saying these have significantly contributed to the growth of Việt Nam-Laos ties.
He proposed that the two State audit agencies foster co-operation in organising the ASEANSAI Congress in Laos in November and the 14th Asian Organisation of Supreme Audit Institution (ASOSAI) Congress in Việt Nam in September 2018.
For her part, Viengthong Siphandone said that she hopes State Audit of Việt Nam (SAV) will continue supporting Laos in fostering the co-ordination of audit agencies in ASEAN countries and within Asia as a whole.
She highlighted that the SAV’s support to Laos over the past few years has been effective, especially in regards to training personnel.
She also expressed hope that the two sides will continue bolstering their comprehensive co-operation, with a focus on expert exchange and personnel training. — VNS
