The authorities concerned should also pay attention to information and communication work for people and businesses to ensure they are aware the role and benefits of the Greater Mekong Subregion and the Cambodia-Laos-Vietnam Development Triangle on Vietnam's economic development, thereby promoting their responsibility and actively contributing to the promotion of the image of Vietnam as a dynamic and integrated country with a friendly, hospitable and modern Vietnamese people.
