Tong Lun said that in recent years, after consultations with the Chinese government, the railway project has been launched. The railway will go to Thailand from Vientiane in the north of Laos and will connect to other Southeast Asian countries. This is very important for Laos. He said he expected the railway to bring enormous economic benefits. Meanwhile, the Lao government is not particularly concerned about the debt burden.
Thailand also provides assistance to Laos in the construction of bridges and roads on the Mekong River. The road construction linked to Vietnamese ports is also advancing, and the Lao government expresses its gratitude to the Vietnamese government. In this way, if the interoperability in the region is strengthened, the investment and export from neighboring countries can be expanded.
In his statement, Laos mentioned that Laos had previously proposed the goal of getting rid of the "least developed country" status by 2020, but it would be difficult to reach the standard by 2020 without further development and industrialization. The Lao government will revitalize domestic investment, attract foreign investment and strive to get rid of the status of "least developed countries" by 2024.
