In line with SEDP6 strategies and priorities, the Lao Country Strategy and Program (CSP) (2007-2010) aims to assist Lao PDR in (i) promoting pro-poor, sustainable growth; (ii) fostering inclusive social development; and (iii) addressing priority governance issues. Through the pursuit of the strategic pillars of the Regional Cooperation Strategy and Program 2007-2009, Lao PDR, being strategically located in the economic corridors of the Greater Mekong Sub-region (GMS), is playing a key role in strengthening connectivity and facilitating cross-border movement and tourism in the GMS. In the CSP, ADB emphasizes that continuing investments in basic education need to be matched with a gradual shift toward strengthening the lower secondary and upper secondary sector and that, as school education continues to expand, demand will grow for better vocational and higher education.
