UNICEF Representative pays a courtesy visit to the Minister of Planning and Investment

Vientiane, 24 March 2022 – Dr. Pia Rebello Britto, UNICEF Representative to Lao PDR, today paid a courtesy visit to H.E. Dr. Khamjane Vongphosy, Minister of Planning and Investment of Lao PDR.

During the meeting, Dr. Pia Rebello Britto congratulated H.E. Dr. Khamjane Vongphosy on his new appointment and the Government of Lao PDR in successfully articulating the country’s vision for the next five years in the 9th National Socio-Economic Development Plan.

The two parties discussed their key achievements in 2021, including UNICEF’s technical support to the Ministry of Planning and Investment (MPI) as well as UNICEF’s role in the containment of COVID-19 in Lao PDR, which included vaccine procurement and roll out, strengthening cold chain capacity and logistics, and development of a digital teaching and learning platform to address the impact of the pandemic on education.

“I would like to express my sincerest thanks to UNICEF for their support. We highly value the achievements that we have made through the partnership between the Government of Lao PDR and UNICEF throughout the years, and your support is key in ensuring the well-being of all Lao children. The Government of Lao PDR looks forward to strengthening our partnership with UNICEF for the future benefit of every child in the country and to addressing the various issues that children in Lao PDR face,” stated H.E. Dr. Khamjane Vongphosy.

They also discussed future areas of cooperation, including strengthening research and evidence generation for improved policy-making, addressing the learning crisis, implementation of social protection initiatives as well as the Government of Lao PDR and UNICEF Country Programme Document 2022-2026 (CPD), which was launched in October 2021 and articulates a vision and achievable goals for Lao children in the next five years.

“UNICEF keenly looks forward to continue working closely with the Government of Lao PDR and all partners on the implementation of the new CPD as we strive together to ensure the realization of the rights of all children in Lao PDR,” stated Dr. Pia Rebello Britto, UNICEF Representative to Lao PDR.

Bank of Valletta p.l.c.

Mt0000020116.

  • BOV Directors And Executives Pay Courtesy Visit To The President Of Malta

H.E. Myriam Spiteri Debono at Sant'Anton Palace in Attard.

H.E. Spiteri Debono as Head of State served as an occasion to renew and strengthen the ties between Bank of Valletta and the Office of the President, with which the Bank crosses paths on several occasions during the year thanks to a number of collaborative initiatives. Bank of Valletta is renowned for its support to The Malta Community Chest Fund through the L-Istrina BOV Piggy Bank Campaign which this year sees its 21st consecutive edition, as well as to various other initiatives undertaken in aid of L-Istrina which the Bank proudly supports.

During the visit, Dr Gordon Cordina stressed the important role that Bank of Valletta plays in the Maltese economy. "Considering the size of the Bank's market share, and its direct relationship with the local economy, Bank of Valletta is considered to be of systemic importance, directly supervised by the European Central Bank , with onerous obligations and expectations from a regulatory perspective. This systemic relevance also places a significant responsibility upon us to support society at large and the various communities we serve, be them either personal or business. Fostering our ties with the Office of the President will also help us in being a truly responsible corporate citizen, as we align some of our activities with those of the Office of the President in helping transform Malta's future."

Corroborating the Chairman's comments, Kenneth Farrugia highlighted the Bank's commitment to society through its extensive Community Programme. "This year marks a significant milestone for BOV as we are celebrating 50 years since we first started serving customers. We are commemorating this anniversary in several ways, but one important aspect is through major CSR projects that we implement during the year. It is worth mentioning that the Bank has been acting as a responsible citizen since its foundation 50 years ago, and a true testament to this is our collaboration with the Malta Community Chest Fund with whom we have been working closely for decades. Last year alone, BOV helped raise over €53,000 from the L-Istrina BOV Piggy Bank Campaign, while collectively, through this campaign and other donations made by the Bank over the years, over €3 million were donated to L-Istrina. The invaluable work that the Office of the President carries out as part of its nationwide duties, fills us with the additional drive to serve our communities better, both through financial services and philanthropic activities that benefit society and those in need."

Myriam Spiteri Debono welcomed the courtesy visit by the BOV's CEO, the Chairman, the Directors the Executive Committee and the Corporate Social Responsibility team. The President extolled the ways in which Bank of Valletta , through its various services, seeks to be of service to the Maltese Society and underlined the fact that Bank of Valletta is one of the pillars of the Maltese economy.

During this visit, the President thanked the Bank for the continuous support it provides in aid of the Malta Community Chest Fund . "Through various activities and events throughout the year, like the L-Istrina BOV Piggy Bank Campaign, BOV continues to support initiatives to help those people who are in need of the services of the Malta Community Chest Fund ."

paying a courtesy visit

(Seated, from fourth left) Kong, Abdul Karim and Eddy pose in a group photo with KADIN delegation together with ACCCIS and SBF members.

KUCHING (July 2): A five-member delegation from the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KADIN) paid a courtesy visit on Sarawak Business Federation (SBF) and the Associated Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Sarawak (ACCCIS) here on Monday.

The delegation members, led by KADIN vice-chairman Eddy Suryadi, were warmly received by SBF president Dato Sri Abang Abdul Karim Tun Openg and ACCCIS president Kong Chiong Ung.

KADIN is a national business organisation authorised by the Indonesian government, comprising 34 regional chambers and 514 district branches.

The purpose of the visit was to engage in detailed discussions and deliberations on cross-border trade issues between Sarawak and Kalimantan, Indonesia.

The outcomes of the discussion will be presented to the Indonesian government as important references and recommendations when formulating policies for improving the cross-border trade.

Both SBF and ACCCIS unanimously expressed hope for the restoration of bilateral trade connectivity by fully re-opening the Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) checkpoint between Entikong and Tebedu for all cargoes and goods, as well as urged flight operators and the Indonesian government to reinstate direct flights between West Kalimantan and Kuching.

Both parties have also agreed to set up a joint special ad-hoc committee specifically to look into cross-border trade matters and address the problems promptly and effectively so as to further fostering bilateral economic growth.

The delegation also shared potential investment opportunities in West Kalimantan, particularly in logistics, special economic zones, new and renewable energy, mining and mineral processing industries and infrastructure, aimed to promote investment and business opportunities between the two regions.
