HÀ NỘI — Vice Chairman of the National Assembly (NA) Đỗ BÁ Tỵ met with a delegation from the Lao NA’s Institute of Legislative Studies (ILS) on Thursday.
Tỵ highlighted the exchange of high-level visits between Việt Nam and Laos in the first months of 2019, citing the official visit to Laos by Party General Secretary, President Nguyễn Phú Trọng in February, and the visit to Việt Nam by Lao NA Chairwoman Pany Yathotou in early March.
The two legislatures also organised seminars on the operations of local administrations, especially in land management, investment attraction, State budget management and tourism development, in Hà Nội and the Central Highlands province of Lâm Đồng, he said.
Tỵ hoped the two legislatures will continue their close co-ordination and enhance the sharing of information and experience in law-making, supervision and decision-making on major national matters.
ILS Director Khampheuy Panemalaythong briefed his host on the outcome of working sessions between the Lao delegation and the Vietnamese NA’s Committee for Deputy Affairs and Legal Research Institute.
He called for Việt Nam’s assistance and experience in equipping Lao NA deputies with professional skills.
The Lao official pledged to make all out efforts to carry out practical and meaningful activities, contributing to relations between the legislatures and their agencies, as well as the Việt Nam-Laos special solidarity. — VNS
