August 24, 2023

Laotian and Thai authorities are mulling over a feasibility plan to construct an expressway running from Laos’ Savannakhet Province to Lao Bao Border Gate of Vietnam, according to Laotian media. According to the plan, a 160km thruway will start in Kaysone Phomvihane, the capital city of Savannakhet, and end at Lao Bao Border Gate in Quang Tri Province, central Vietnam. Furthermore, the Savannakhet government believes that the highway will promote economic and trade relations between Laos and other regional countries as it is located on the East-West Economic Corridor (EWEC), which covers Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam. The EWEC is an economic development program initiated at the eighth Greater Mekong Subregion Ministerial Conference in 1998 to facilitate the economic development and integration of the EWEC countries, according to Vietnam’s Ministry of Industry and Trade.
