Referring to the outcomes of the 40th meeting of the Inter-Governmental Committee and the 2018 cooperation program, the PM asserted he will direct ministries and localities to achieve goals set by the two governments. 

Viet Nam is working to improve the capacity of science-technology staff and infrastructure for scientific studies, including basic and applied sciences in service of socio-economic development, he said. 

The Vietnamese leader hailed cooperation between the Viet Nam Academy of Science and Technology and the Lao Ministry of Science and Technology in general, and the Lao National Scientific Institute in particular, especially the outcomes of the first phase of the Official Development Assistance (ODA)-funded project “Strengthening scientific study capacity and technology for the Lao National Scientific Institute”. 

The Vietnamese Government will support Laos in launching the second phase of the project, especially improving the capacity of scientists and well as create favorable conditions for Laos to conduct scientific research in Viet Nam and partner with Vietnamese scientists and experts to contribute to Lao socio-economic development.

Mr. Boviengkham Vongdara expressed his hope to continue receiving support of the Vietnamese PM and agencies in launching the project, which helps improve research capacity of the Lao National Scientific Institute.
