The president suggested the diversification of dissemination channels, including use of the mass media and lectures and seminars, to advocate the Party and state’s guidelines and policies.

Thongloun told the Party Central Committee’s Propaganda and Training Board to work with the Party Central Committee’s Theory Council and other bodies to study various theories and practices in order to assist the Politburo and Party Central Committee in shaping the Party’s guidelines and policies in the coming years so that they matched the current circumstances.

The leader asked the board to streamline and strengthen its organisational structure in order to improve its performance to meet the changing needs of modern times.

During the congress, Secretary of the Board’s Party Committee and Head of the Board, Khamphanh Pheuyavong, outlined the board’s achievements over the past five years (2016-2020).
