He underlined that bilateral cooperation outcomes in recent years have demonstrated efforts by Vietnamese and Lao businesses, governments, ministries, and sectors.

The BACI’s establishment was one of the practical activities of the Vietnamese Government and business community to improve their investment’s effectiveness in Laos, Hien said, noting that his association has become a true bridge for bilateral trade and investment ties.

He said the BACI-YEAL agreement will continue opening up many opportunities for investment cooperation, thus contributing to each country’s development.

For his part, YEAL Chairman Khamsen Sisavong said the YEAL-BACI cooperation is important to both at present and in the future. The two associations should also make use of opportunities to coordinate more closely to help solve youth unemployment in Laos.

He asked them to jointly organise discussions on partnership in developing export products and set up a cooperation board to boost substantive ties. He also called on Vietnamese firms working in the finance-banking sector of Laos to create favourable conditions for local companies to access soft loans.

At the meeting, the countries’ businesses also inked five cooperation documents.

Founded in 2010, the BACI now has 100 member companies. Meanwhile, there are more than 800 firms that are members of the YEAL, which was set up in 2002.
