Vietnam and Laos plan to further strengthen ties in the field of education, particularly in human resource development, according to an announcement made at a meeting between representatives of the Vietnamese Ministry of Education and Training and the Lao Ministry of Education and Sports in Hanoi on July 13.
Pham Vu Luan, Minister of Education and Training proposed some solutions that would help Lao students studying in Vietnam to improve their learning skills by enhanced quality of teaching and learning methods in the Vietnamese language.
He said that currently, teaching Vietnamese in some schools in Laos is progressing well. This ability will help Lao and Vietnamese students to communicate with each other. Learning Vietnamese will create more opportunities for Lao students to study in Vietnam once they can speak Vietnamese.
As of now, thousands of Lao students study in 127 schools and universities in Vietnam.
Mr. Luan stressed that Vietnam considers that educational ties will help strengthen Laos-Vietnam relations.
