Prime Minister joins tree plantation drive
Prime Minister Phankham Viphavanh joined students at the Faculty of Architecture, Lao National University, to plant 90 rosewood trees to mark National Arbour Day on June 1.
This is a part of the government’s plans to plant 35 million trees over 36,950 hectares this year and to restore up to 70 percent of its forest cover by 2025.
Many provinces and state organisations across the country also held tree planting drives to mark this day. Luang Prabang and Savannakhet provinces held the drives at the provincial administrative offices.
