SO, Jin Kwang, president of Korea Saemaul Undong Center, said, “Tradition and national character of Laos are enough to produce successful results as Korean Saemaul Undong did. I really hope successful cases of Laos Saemaul Undong will be spread to many developing countries in Asia and Africa.”
“Saemaul Undong will be basic materials for rural development in Laos. The important thing is that Laos government evokes people’s spirits which are diligence, self-help and cooperation. I am sure Saemaul Undong which has a lot of similarity with Three Pillar Policy in Laos can be a huge help. Laos government is trying to escape from worlds poorest nation by 2020. I hope we continue cooperation.” Sounthone Xayachack, Laos vice foreign minister, explained.
