“I would like to ask all you ladies present at this seminar to be more active in fulfilling the motto of ‘Good Development’ and actively participate in translating the plan of the Lao Women’s Union of the ministry into reality, building up your roles, accumulating lessons as much as you can so you can apply them to the responsibilities you have been assigned in an effective manner,” said Mrs Baykham.
