The event aims to help the Lao people and international friends understand more about the noble and pure international spirit of Vietnamese volunteers and experts in fulfilling their international obligations to help the Lao people in their revolutionary career and national construction cause.

The exhibition also offers an occasion for the Lao people and the Vietnamese community living and working in Laos to better understand the traditional relations and the unique special solidarity between the two brotherly countries, thereby continuing to build on and further enhance such a great friendship.
