Northern Cross-Border Power Trade and Distribution Project: Project Data Sheet (Lao translation)

Translated PDS | March 2018

The proposed Northern Cross-Border Power Trade and Distribution Project aims to promote regional power exchange in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) and expand access to energy in several northern provinces in the Lao People's Democratic Republic (Lao PDR). The project will help address Lao PDR's need to: (i) expand access to low-cost, reliable power in rural areas; and (ii) develop power interconnections between Lao PDR and Thailand and Myanmar to increase power trade.
