This is a meaningful gift from the Communist Party Committee of Hanoi, the city’s government, and people’s organizations with the aim of helping Luang Prabang Province fight the pandemic. Luang Prabang is one of the eight northern provinces of Laos that have received the support of Hanoi.

In response, Khamkhan Chanthavisouk expressed his deep gratitude to the Party committee, government, and people of Hanoi for the donation, adding that he looks forward to receiving more support and experience sharing from Vietnam in the combat against the Covid-19.

He also wished that the relations between the capital Hanoi and the province of Luang Prabang would be further strengthened in the future.

The Vietnamese Consulate General in Luang Prabang will continue to deliver donations from Hanoi to seven Lao northern provinces in the days ahead.
