Last week, the eighth conference of the Committees for External Relations of the National Assemblies of Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam (CLV) on Development Triangle Area was held via videoconference on Sep. 23, reported by VNA.
Hosted by Cambodia, the event was themed “Strengthening parliamentary partnership for sustainable development and response to Covid in the CLV Development Triangle Area,” aiming to realise the shared interests and cope with the pandemic for the common prosperity and solidarity of people in the area as well as the promotion of traditional friendship and long-term solidarity among the three countries.
Chairman of the Vietnamese National Assembly’s Committee for External Relations Vu Hai Ha lauded Cambodia’s efforts in organising the conference, and said that to realise the goals included in the conference’s theme, all parties should exert more efforts to implement their commitments for the comprehensive socio-economic development in the Development Triangle Area in a sustainable manner, while rolling out effective measures to deal with the current complicated pandemic developments, and contributing to promoting the traditional friendship and solidarity among the three countries.
Following the opening session, the conference conducted the first and second sessions, during which participants discussed a report on the implementation of the development plan and measures to deal with Covid crisis in the CLV Development Triangle Area, and a report on the outcomes of the supervision activities of the three committees over the Development Triangle Area.
