Lao People’s Democratic Republic (PDR) is a small, landlocked nation of less than six million people at the center of the dynamic Mekong region. The country is facing numerous development challenges but has been undertaking reforms that are helping to embark it on an increasingly sustainable development path. With strong economic performance and structural reforms in trade, private sector development, and public financial management -- among others, Lao PDR is fighting poverty, addressing social inequities, and building stronger capacity to manage its rich natural resources.
