The Lao Front for National Development has revealed plans to celebrate its upcoming 69th anniversary on August 13, with various activities set to mark the event.
Vice President of the Lao Front, Mr Chanthavong Seneamatmonty, outlined the planned activities at a press conference on Wednesday.
Mr Chanthavong urged the media to actively promote events and activities related to the Lao Front for National Development (LFND)’s history and its work, as well as the upcoming celebration.
Mr Chanthavong, who is a member of the organising committee, detailed the activities planned to mark the anniversary.
These include talks on events of historical importance for community leaders in districts across the country, as well as sports competitions such as football, boxing and petanque.
He also explained the origins and history of the LFND, pointing out its vital role in boosting solidarity and mobilising all Lao people to support the national liberation movement, national defence and development.
The Lao Front played a crucial role in unifying the Lao people and encouraging them to support the revolutionary movement.
The Lao Front was established on August 13, 1950, when it was known as the Lao Front of Liberty, later becoming the Lao Front of Patriots. After Laos achieved liberation in 1975, the organisation was given the name it holds today.
The Lao Front for National Development is the face of national unity, socio-political relations and voluntary unity. It was established to represent the socio-political and personal wishes of all Lao people, regardless of ethnicity, religion, gender, or age.
Every year, the Front makes a special effort to inform the public about its work and achievements and the ways in which it supports public interests.
