(VOV) - Ho Chi Minh City and Savannakhet province in Laos have great potential for promoting cooperation in all fields.
Binh Phuoc, Savannakhet boost cooperation
This was emphasised by Secretary of the HCM City Party Committee Le Thanh Hai and Savannakhet Governor Souphanh Keomixay at a meeting in HCM City on April 28.
Hai praised the great socio-economic achievements Laos has made in recent years and affirmed that the Savannakhet delegation's visit to Vietnam will help tighten bilateral ties between the two localities.
He proposed that both sides develop specific cooperative programs in economics, education, culture, and people-to-people diplomacy. They should also create the best conditions for businesses from both countries to meet and seek opportunities for cooperation.
Governor Keomixay briefed his host on Savannakhet's socio-economic situation and advantages, including agriculture, forestry and minerals, saying he hopes more businesses from Ho Chi Minh City, and Vietnam in general, will invest in these fields.
He thanked HCM City for its support and for granting scholarships to students from Savannakhet to enable them to study in the city.
