Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism of Laos Bouageun Xaphouvong said that all the students, teachers and parents had contributed to the significant task of sharing Lao culture abroad. He added that the ministry acknowledged the dedication and commitment of the students who are still studying and at the same time sharing their culture overseas.

During the five weeks of their tour in Laos, Buageun Xaphouvong has suggested the performers see more of what Lao people have developed, get to know and understand more about the lifestyle of Lao people and the traditional culture of the motherland of their ancestors.
