Minister of ICT monitors the progress of tourism infrastructure development project in Champassak

Minister of Information, Culture and Tourism Suansavanh Viyaketh visited on Mar 16 Champassak to monitor the progress of a road construction project under the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) Tourism Infrastructure for Inclusive Growth Project.
Conducted by local company Phu Khong Construction, the infrastructure development project is funded by a US$4 million grant from the Asian Development Bank (ADB).
The project involves the improvement of roads in Nakasang and Don Det-Don Khone in Khong district, Champassak.
Scheduled to be completed within 24 months, from May 26, 2020 to May 20, 2022, the project, due to Covid-19, has achieved only 66.9% of its plan.
Once completed, the project will facilitate the transportation of local people as well as domestic and foreign tourists to and from tourist attractions in the southernmost province.
