Highly commending CSG’s endeavor to the education cause in remote areas of Laos, the LCFA believed that Laos-China Friendship Schools have made important contributions to the development and poverty alleviation in these areas.
Mr. Khammany Inthirath, president of the association and minister of Energy and Minerals of Laos, said the CSG-assisted project has deepened the traditional friendly relations between Laos and China and cemented cooperation between the two countries as a community with a shared future. The president also wished the Laos-China traditional friendly relations and cooperation a lasting, stable and eternal development.
To implement the action plan on the building of a community with a shared future for China and Laos, CSG has decided to sponsor the construction of two China-Laos Friendship Schools in Vangleck and Hatnam, near to the Nam Tha 1 Hydropower Plant in Bokeo Province at the beginning of 2020. CSG International Co., Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of CSG, funded the project and organized the specific implementation. Nam Tha 1 Lao Power Company, as the project’s constructor, had overcome the challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic and the rainy season, and completed the construction of the schools ahead of schedule.
