NDO/VNA – The Party Central Committee’s Information and Education Commission launched a competition on the history of the Vietnam-Laos relationship at a press conference in Hanoi on April 18.

As part of activities to mark the 55th anniversary of Vietnam-Laos diplomatic ties (September 5, 1962-2017), the move aims to promote popularisation and raise public awareness, especially that of young people, of the Vietnam-Laos special friendship.

Deputy Head of the Commission Pham Van Linh noted that the competition is a practical activity to respond to the Vietnam-Laos Friendship and Solidarity Year 2017, contributing to tightening the bilateral ties and combatting the attempts of reactionaries to distort the history of the Vietnam-Laos special solidarity and friendship.

The organising board said multiple-choice questions will be available on the website:, while questions for writing will be provided by the Information and Education Magazine under the commission.

The multiple-choice questions will be conducted every week, beginning from May 2 through December 22. Meanwhile, the writing contest will run from October 1-31.

Overseas Vietnamese and Lao people as well as foreigners are encouraged to join the contest.

The awarding ceremony is slated for December this year.
