Lower global oil prices are an opportunity for developing countries like Laos
to pursue timely structural reforms as the region's economic integration
continues apace, according to the Asian Development Bank (ADB).
ADB senior country specialist for Laos Mr Shunsuke Bando said Tuesday the
low prices leading to subdued inflation provided the chance for an
oil-importing country such as Laos to reduce its current account deficit and
wind back costly market-distorting fuel subsidies.
Laos' inflation rate is projected at 3.5 percent in 2015, down from 4.2
percent in 2014 and 6.4 percent in 2013.
Mr Bando made the comments at a press conference in Vientiane to mark the
publication of the Asian Development Outlook 2015 nike air max 90 blanche

The report, which looks at national and regional economies across Asia, sees
steady growth of 6.3 percent across Asia underpinned by reform for developing
countries nike air max 90 fluo pas

in commodity prices.
Speaking at the press conference, ADB Country Director for Laos Sandra
Nicoll welcomed Laos' continued economic expansion and recommended policymakers
take advantage of the opportunities for macroeconomic reform presented while
reducing the nation's fiscal deficit.
"The Lao PDR Economy remains a strong performer in the region with a GDP
growth above 7 percent for the ninth consecutive year in 2014, though fiscal
tightening and weaker global demand for minerals moderated the pace from 7.9
percent in 2013 to 7.4 percent nike air max 90 rose

She said weaker global demand for Laos' mineral exports and fiscal
tightening would feed into a lower projected growth rates of 7.0 percent in
2015 and 7.2 percent in 2016.
Meanwhile the nation's expanding power generation sector was expected to be
a major positive contributor along with growth in services, she said.
"The outlook for 2015 for the Lao PDR economy remains solid as service
sectors continue to contribute strongly."
"However, the main challenges are to reduce expenditure to drive the fiscal
deficit down to a more sustainable 3 percent of GDP and to rebuild the foreign
reserves which are currently low nike air max 90 fleur

She also highlighted opportunities to encourage further growth as
policymakers implement those measures agreed to by the country and its
international trading partners.
"Lao acceded to the World Trade Organization in 2013, so by continuing to
implement the measures required that will put the country in a good position,
especially with the establishment of the ASEAN Economic Community coming

growth and revenue, opportunities existed to improve productivity, skills and

He said more than 70 percent of Laos' working age population remained
involved in agriculture on permanent or seasonal bases.
