VIENTIANE, Nov. 11 (Xinhua) -- The Lao language version of a book on Lancang-Mekong cooperation "Sharing the River" was officially launched here on Friday.
Since the establishment of Lancang-Mekong cooperation mechanism in 2016, Lancang-Mekong countries' publishing houses have cooperated closely. China's Yunnan Education Publishing House and Lao publishing house have worked together to promote the translation work of the book into Lao language.
The book is based on three cooperation pillars of Lancang-Mekong mechanism, including political and security issues, economic and sustainable development, as well as cultural and people-to-people exchanges, introducing five prioritized development directions for Lancang-Mekong countries, namely connectivity, production capacity, cross-border economic cooperation, water resources, as well as agriculture and poverty reduction.
Chinese and Lao publishing sector will take this opportunity to expand cooperation areas, improve cooperation level and introduce more quality books to meet the needs of the Chinese and Lao people as well as peoples in Lancang-Mekong region, according to Yunnan Publishing Corporation Group.
