Of which, education and training are a typical example of successful cooperation between the two countries. Every year hundreds of Lao students pursue their study in Vietnam while many Vietnamese students receive scholarships from the Lao government. It is estimated that more than 14,000 Lao students are studying at 147 Vietnamese schools.
