Since the beginning of the year, the city welcomed eight delegations from Lao provinces, especially visits of the Lao National Assembly Speaker and Prime Minister.

On the occasion, the city Party chief sent the best wishes to the high- ranking delegation.

Lao leader Sonexay Siphandone said that the visit focused on sharing experience about investment management, commodity production, internet management, agriculture and trade.
 
In addition, Mr. Sonexay Siphandone hoped that not only city’s leaders would continue supporting localities of his country to strengthen cooperation and investment with Ho Chi Minh City but also city’s enterprises would continue investing into Lao provinces.
