Vietnam, Laos foster parliamentary cooperation

National Assembly Vice Chairman Phung Quoc Hien on Monday held talks with his Lao counterpart, Bounpone Bouttanavong who is in Vietnam for an official visit.

Both sides agreed to work closely to organize visits by the two legislatures' leaders, and hold thematic seminars and training courses on law building. The two NAs will consider establishing a joint group in charge of monitoring activities at border gates in order to facilitate two-way trade.
