Sports cooperation between Vietnam – Laos

The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism of Vietnam and the National Sports Committee of Laos have recently signed an agreement on sports cooperation for the period of 2011-2015.

According to this, every year, the two sides will exchange 1 or 2 teams of experts, senior officials and management officers to discuss the experience in management and development of sport in each country.

Vietnam will send two experts to help Laos in surveying, making a project and establishing the School of Sports in the National Physical Training Center of Laos.

This year, Laos asks Vietnamese coaches of diving, swimming, shooting, and Vovinam (Vietnamese traditional martial arts) to help in the preparation for the 26th SEA Games in Indonesia and they will also send athletes to Vietnam for training.
