What are the alternatives to hydropower as a source of export revenue ? PDF Print E-mail

A: Lao PDR's main exports are wood and wood products, gold and copper, garments, coffee and electricity - with electricity sales to Thailand currently representing about 30% of total export revenues. Mining is becoming increasingly important, and tourism also makes an important contribution to the national economy. But total GDP is a little less than US$ 4.0 billion (estimate for 2007). Agriculture represents 50% of GDP; industry a little over a quarter.

The Government of Lao wants to see the domestic manufacturing and service sectors assume a greater role in national development, and progress is being made in this respect, particularly with the granting of Normal Trade Relations (NTR) status with the United States in 2004.
