Xiangtan and Kaysone Phomvihane of Laos established friendly-city relationship on December 17, 2019. They will carry out exchanges and cooperation in the fields of commerce and trade, tourism, culture, and science and technology. 
Kaysone Phomvihane City is the birthplace of Kaysone Phomvihane, a founder of the Lao People's Democratic Republic (Laos). Both as the “hometown of great men”, Xiangtan and Kaysone Phomvihane cities reached an intention to develop friendly-city relations in 2018. Over the past year, the two cities saw growing mutual visits and enhanced collaboration. A “Thousand people tour Laos” program was launched in Xiangtan this April. The number of Xiangtan travelers to Laos surged, which further consolidated friendship between the two places. 
As agreed, the two cities will promote people-to-people exchanges and economic and trade contacts, and organize tourist, cultural, and educational exchanges, on the basis of equality and mutual benefit. These will further enhance friendship and mutual trust, broaden cooperative areas, and improve cooperation between the two cities.
