Lao PDR - Laos Business Environment (LBE)
Year Completed: ongoing through 2025
IBI is implementing the USAID-funded Laos Business Environment (LBE) project, which is designed to support economic growth. This five-year project will support Lao PDR’s (Laos) economic reform agenda, and will strengthen government’s ability to respond to the needs of Laotian businesses, and improve of the Laos business enabling environment. This approach will enable the private sector, and especially small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), make a greater contribution to Laos’ economic growth, employment, and Laotian citizen income levels.
The project has three components:
Improve the competitiveness of SMEs in high priority sectors
Inclusive Public-Private Sector Collaboration and
More Effective Facilitation of Market Economy. We will be posting updates as this ground-breading program gets underway!
