A cultural night was held by the Indonesian Embassy in Vientiane on Dec. 7, as the archipelago seeks to promote its breathtaking destinations to the youth of Laos.
"This was the first time that such an event was held by a foreign country’s representative right in the heart of the Lao Youth Union," said Indonesian Ambassador to Laos Pratito Soeharyo as quoted by kompas.com.
The "From Wonderful Indonesia to Lao Youth" cultural night was attended by around 300 people, including the union’s secretary-general, officials and members.
During his speech, Pratito said the event aimed to increase cooperation between the two countries, such as conducting youth exchange programs and collaborative activities, etc.
Pratito was hopeful that the event would also strengthen people-to-people contact and hence increase the number of tourists visiting both countries.
"Hopefully, the audience, which consisted of youth leaders and the young generation of Laos, can get to know and become fond of Indonesia," he said. (kes)
