Outstanding Vietnamese and Lao women were honoured with Orders by the Vietnamese and Lao States at a ceremony in Pleiku, Gia Lai province, on April 6, in the presence of Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam.

Deputy PM Dam presented an Independence Order, second class to Chairwoman of the Lao Women's Union (LWU) Inlavanh Keobounphanh and Independence Orders, third class to three Vice Chairwomen of the LWU, in addition to granting Friendship Orders to a number of outstanding collectives and individuals from LWU branches in Lao provinces.

Meanwhile, the Lao side presented the Lao State's Freedom (Issara) Order, third class to the leader of the Vietnamese Women's Union (VWU) and Labour Orders, third class to several collectives and individuals from the VWU, and VWU branches in six provinces and cities in Vietnam.

Deputy PM Dam highlighted the considerable contributions that have been made by women from the two countries to the special relationship between Vietnam and Laos, which has been nurtured by generations of leaders and people from both countries.

"The noble awards presented at the ceremony not only demonstrate the recognition of specific individuals and collectives but also shows the respect of the Parties and States of Vietnam and Laos for the silent contributions of other individuals and collectives to the achievements of the two women's unions, as well as to the special friendship and solidarity between the two countries", said the Deputy PM.

The LWU and VWU have jointly worked on many cooperation agreements at both central and grassroots levels in various areas of poverty reduction, and health care for women and children, among others.

Our people are grateful that our mothers from South and North alike have borne and raised our nation's generation of heroes....

Under the Socialist system, tens of thousands of women have become specialists in different fields and, as cadre, serve as directors and vice-directors of factories, leaders of farming cooperatives, presidents of People’s Committees, and general secretaries of Party Cells....

And so, the women of Vietnam from ancient times until now, from South to North, from young to old, are truly heroes ..."
