The building, which cost more than 111 million USD, will be the venue for meetings of the Lao NA and important events. It will also serve cultural tours and research trips.

Even though the project hasn’t been fully completed, the building is ready for use at the first session of the 9th legislature of Laos scheduled to open on Monday.

The remaining work will be carried out for the full completion of the project by the end of June.

Vice Chairman of the Lao NA Somphanh Phengkhammy said that the contractor’s workers had worked around the clock to ensure the progress of the project despite the severe impact of COVID-19.
