Chairman of the People’s Committee of Ho Chi Minh City Nguyen
Thanh Phong received leaders of three central Lao provinces – Savanlakhet,

At
the meeting, Phong said a conference on promoting trade and tourism investment
in the Lao localities scheduled for July 19 in the city reflects interests of
sides involved in stepping up their practical cooperation.

He

anniversary of diplomatic relations and 40 years of signing their Treaty of
Amity and Cooperation.

Ho
Chi Minh City appreciates the Lao President’s first-class labour order and is
committed to doing its utmost to foster the two countries’ comprehensive
partnership, Phong stated.

On

The
support would contribute to strengthening engagements and friendship among the
four localities, he added.
