Construction of the school was built at a total cost of VND120 billion under a memorandum of agreement signed between Vietnam’s Dien Bien province and Laos’ Phongsaly Province in 2016.

Covering nearly 38,500 square metres, the school has 40 classrooms which can provide education to more than 1,800 students.

Speaking at the Deputy Governor of Phongsaly Province, Thongsy Saosoulinphon expressed his thank to the Vietnamese Government and Dien Bien Province in particular for the project, pledging to manage and operate the school effectively.

The project is an illustration of the two countries’ sincere and close relations between the provinces of Dien Bien and Phongsaly as well as other Laos’ northern provinces in general.

It also contributes to nurturing and deepening the traditional friendship and special solidarity between the two Parties, States, Governments and peoples.

Also on June 30, Metfone, the Cambodian affiliate of Vietnam’s telecom group Viettel, handed over a video conferencing system to the Royal Gendarmerie of Cambodia (RGC).

Metfone’s technicians will install this system at 28 video conferencing locations of the RGC and supply them with telecom facilities that are among the best of their kind.
