The exhibition also aims to strengthen the competitiveness of Lao products by providing a platform for the exchange of business experiences and the matching of businesses and innovations to improve the quality of goods and services so they can compete in domestic, regional and international markets, particularly in the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC).
The 4th Made in Laos Expo was organized to demonstrate the growth of the private sector and to celebrate the great successes of the 28th and 29th ASEAN Summit under chairmanship of Lao PDR, the ASEAN Business and Investment Summit 2016, and the 41st anniversary of Lao PDR.
Lao National Chamber of Commerce and Industry, as the representative of the Lao private sector, is proud to host this gathering of products made or assembled in the Lao PDR to promote Lao culture and the readiness of Lao products to enter regional and international markets among local and international visitors.
This event will encourage and increase tourism and investment in Laos and provide ideas for future business operations in the country.
