Spanning 7,000 sq.m at Thatluang Square in downtown Vientiane, a sacred place symbolising Laos’s solidarity, it was built at a total investment of about 112 million USD under the supervision of experts from Vietnam, Laos and Japan.

At the event, the participants agreed that the project to build the Lao NA House serves as proof of the great friendship between Vietnam and Laos which marks a new development in the countries’ special friendly relations./.
