BMI View:

Laos's infrastructure sector offers significant investment opportunities, particularly in the areas of hydropower and transport. That said, the business environment remains challenging due to widespread corruption, a lack of transparency, undeveloped legal frameworks, bureaucracy and red tape. Therefore, we forecast Laos's construction growth to expand by an annual average rate of 7.3% between 2016 and 2020 in real terms, slower than the annual average growth rate of 14.9% registered between 2011 and 2015.

Latest Updates And Structural Trends


- Both Laos and China remain committed to building the high-speed rail project that will link China's Kunming with the Lao capital, Vientiane. While we expect improved transport connectivity regionally to provide a boost to Lao's railway construction outlook over the coming years, the project is likely to face implementation delays.

- Laos's power-related infrastructure, notably the hydropower sector, will expand at a rapid pace over the coming years amid the government's commitment to become the 'battery' of South East Asia. However, the Lao government's increasingly unilateral development approach could result in diplomatic pressure, particularly from Vietnam, and public backlash.
