Project Description

The town of Pakbeng is situated on the Mekong River, on NR2. It is also on the border between Sayabouly and Oudomxay provinces, at the midpoint between Bokeo and Luang Prabang. As inland transport is becoming more important, especially for tourism, building this river port is necessary.

Progress (as of March 2021)

Proposed. Construction Agreement has been signed with a Chinese firm since 2015. Fund mobilization is expected in 2020. MPWT requested a loan to the Chairman of the Lao- China Cooperation Committee on 5/6/2020
