VGP – Laos and Viet Nam on April 25 in Vientiane signed an agreement  to boost cooperation in ethnic affairs, including training, building and implementing related policies, and increasing cultural exchanges between ethnic groups along the shared border line.

At the working session

The agreement was reached at the talks between Deputy Minister-Vice Chairwoman of the Vietnamese Government’s Committee for Ethnic Affairs Hoang Thi Hanh and Vice Chairman of the Central Committee of the Lao Front for National Construction Yiakeuya Nochochongtua.

The two sides pledged to jointly organise seminars for ethnic affairs officials to share experience and art programmes praising the bilateral friendship.

The two sides agreed to work together to increase communications among ethnic people living along the shared border so that they do not participate in negative activities such as human and drug trafficking, free migration, and unregistered marriage.

They consented to join hands in publishing a bilingual magazine to popularize the special friendship between Viet Nam and Laos, as well as encouraging ethnic minorities in the shared border areas to preserve and promote good cultural values.
