She made the statement while receiving on January 11 head of the Economic, Technology and Environment Committee of the Lao National Assembly Bounpone Sisoulath who leads a Lao delegation to visit Vietnam.

Expressing her delights at the traditional friendship and special solidarity between the two countries, Tam hailed Laos’s organization of people’s councils in localities, thereby increasing the role of people in the country’s development.

Vietnam and Laos are interested in land management to ensure national development as well as the people’s interests, she said, expressing her hope that experience exchange between the Lao delegation and the General Department of Land Administration under the Vietnam Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment will help the National Assembly of each side to complete its land management law.

Boupone Sisoulath, for his part, thanked the Vietnamese National Assembly and Ho Chi Minh City People’s Council for sharing experience in activities of the National Assembly and local people’s councils with Laos.

Laos is drafting a law on land management, he said, adding that land management is a complex issue, especially when the country’s population is growing rapidly while land fund is limited.

He wished that the HCM City People’s Council will pay visit and share experience with Laos in the coming time.
