Minister of Transport Dinh La Thang held talks with the Lao minister of Transport and Public Works Sommat Pholsena in Hanoi on August 9.
Both sides agreed that the 2E road project linking Tan Trang of Vietnam and Muong Khoa of Laos will be inaugurated by the end of this year and will cooperate in seeking a Republic of Korean partner to invest in a Vientiane-Thakhet – Mu Gia – Tan Ap – Vung Ang railway project, as well as a road linking Laos’ Sekong province to the Laos-Vietnam border.
They said that after fully implementing the single-stop/single-window inspection at the Lao Bao – Densavanh border checkpoint, the model will be replicated at other border gates.
The two ministers also agreed to promote the further exchange of experience in quality assessment of transport projects and personnel training.
Both sides will strengthen ties in aviation, land transport, and transit delivery, as well as in implementing regional and sub-regional projects, including the triangular development project.
