Representatives from Cambodia, Laos and Viet Nam gathered in Ha Noi yesterday to discuss a draft co-operation agreement on the management and operation of their joint website.
The website was initiated by the Vietnamese Ministry of Planning and Investment to promote co-operation and development between the three countries, particularly in the triangle development area. The draft focuses on regulations for administrative procedures, editing and provisions and checks on information and data posted on the website.
Under the agreement, information provided by each country will be in line with the website's purpose as well as the laws and regulations that pertain to each country. In addition, posted information will not bring harm to the independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of each country.
The website is on a trial run at http://clv-triangle.vn in English, Khmer, Lao and Vietnamese. It will introduce the development triangle and the potential of the provinces in it, provide and share information on activities relating to the triangle, deliver news on the investment climate and opportunities and promote tourism among other things.
The Cambodia-Laos-Viet Nam development triangle initially covers 13 provinces, including Kon Tum, Gia Lai, Dak Lak, Dak Nong and Binh Phuoc in Viet Nam, Sekong, Attapu, Saravan and Champasak in Laos, and Stung Treng, Rattanakirri, Mondulkiry and Kratie in Cambodia.
