dc.description.abstractThe economy of the Lao People’s Democratic Republic (Lao PDR) continues to grow. An investment boom, based on natural resources and fueled by mining and exports of hydropower, has seen gross national income double since 2006. Yet Lao PDR remains highly vulnerable to external economic shocks. The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has been supporting the government since 1968, and remains one of the country’s largest multilateral financiers. As of 31 December 2014, ADB has provided $1.78 billion for 89 loans, and cumulative disbursements for lending and grants financed by ordinary capital resources amounted to $1.63 billion.en_US
