Abstract

The objective of this study is twofold: First, (a) it evaluates the outcomes and outputs of technical assistance to SEZs in Laos; (b) it assesses the relevance of those results to the objectives of sustainable economic growth and job creation; and (c) it identifies any shortcomings that still need to be addressed. Secondly, for the Seventh National Social and Economic Development Plan’s (7thNSEDP) goal of achieving an inclusive, private sector led growth, it assesses the effectiveness and relevance of the Government’s SEZ program, especially Prime Minister’s ‘Decree on Special Economic Zone and Specific Economic Zone in the Lao PDR’.
