Asian Development Bank and the Lao PDR: Fact Sheet (Lao Translation)
ADB operations in Lao PDR focus on infrastructure and human development to support employment and income generation, with environmental sustainability, gender equality, and good governance as crosscutting themes.
While the country has avoided a large outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), restrictions associated with the pandemic have restrained economic expansion and accentuated the country’s development challenges.
ADB’s support to the Lao PDR will combine financing, knowledge, and partnerships, with operations continuing to focus on institutional capacity, agriculture and natural resources, infrastructure for connectivity, human and social services, and making cities more liveable.
Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides concise information on ADB's operations in the country and contact information.
