Government Officials Complete English Training
At a ceremony on 27 March 2015 at Vientiane College, Clemency Oliphant, First Secretary at the Australian Embassy presented certificates to thirty government officials from ten ministries and government agencies who completed a six month Government of Laos Professional English Language Training (GOLPET) course funded by the Laos Australia Institute.
