At the reception, PM Thongloun Sisoulith praised Viet Nam’s organisation of GMS-6 and CLV-10 and its initiatives to the events and expressed his belief that the summits will be successful.

He told his host that the Party, State and people of Laos are working hard to accomplish the goals set by the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party at its 10th Congress.

The Lao PM asked the two countries to actively deploy high-ranking agreements based on the outcomes of the annual meeting between the two Political Bureaus and the 40th meeting of the Viet Nam-Laos Intergovernmental Committee, to accelerate economic connectivity, especially in transport, energy and key cooperative projects.

Mr. Thongloun Sisoulith expects that the two countries will continue coordinating closely and supporting each other at multilateral forums.

In turn, President Tran Dai Quang said Viet Nam and Laos need to continue deepening their political ties while boosting their cooperation in diplomacy, security, and defence fields

He expressed his belief that the participation of PM Thongloun Sisoulith will contribute greatly to the success of these summits, creating an impetus for the cooperation in the sub-region and between Cambodia, Laos, and Viet Nam.

The President congratulated Laos on their immense, important attainments across sectors and expressed his belief that under the leadership of their Party and State, Lao people will succeed in building their country more wealthy.

“Viet Nam’s consistent policy is respecting and giving the top priority to preserving and developing the special solidarity with Laos. Viet Nam will wholeheartedly support the comprehensive reform, national defence, and nation-building efforts of Laos,” he stated.

Built on the successes of the Viet Nam-Laos Solidarity and Friendship Year 2017, 2018 will be a favourable year for the two countries to reinforce and expand their traditional friendship, special solidarity, and comprehensive cooperation, and lift their cooperation to the next level, the Vietnamese President said. 
Mr. Quang suggested pushing communications campaigns to educate young people on the special solidarity between the two countries, as well as connectivity between the two economies, especially in transport and energy.

The Lao leader is currently in Ha Noi for the sixth Greater Mekong Subregion Summit (GMS-6) and the 10th Cambodia-Laos-Viet Nam Development Triangle Summit (CLV-10) from March 29-31.
