NDO - Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism will award prizes to ten entries in a songwriting contest on Vietnam-Laos relations.

The organising board will present three second prizes to Pham Van Minh, Thai Duong and Van Thanh Nho. Meanwhile three third prizes went to Le Xuan Hoa, Hinh Phuoc Lien and Viet Trung. In addition, four consolation prizes were also presented.

The songs affirm the eternity of the Vietnam-Laos special friendship and solidarity.

The competition is one of a number of activities to mark the 55th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between Vietnam and Laos and the 40th anniversary of the Vietnam-Laos Amity and Cooperation Treaty.

It is designed to further cement the friendship between the two Parties, Governments and peoples that has been keenly nurtured for more than seven decades, as well as helping to strengthen cultural and economic cooperation between the two countries.

Suggested themes include the Vietnam-Laos relationship established by Presidents Ho Chi Minh and Kaysone Phomvihane and nurtured by subsequent generations of leaders, and the two countries’ shared vision for peace and prosperity.
