NA delegation visits $700M logistics hub in Vientiane

A senior National Assembly (NA) delegation from Cambodia visited the Lao Vientiane Logistics Park and said that they are optimistic that the port will be connected to Cambodia through a $700 million investment project. Once the project is complete, it would make transportation of Cambodian products to China, through Laos, easier.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of NA-Senate Relations and Inspection Men Sam Orn, representing NA President Heng Samrin, visited the Vientiane Logistics Park on September 15 during their official visit to the neighboring country.

The NA’s social media channel said that the Vientiane Logistics Park would be the connection hub for China, ASEAN and even extending out to the eastern and central parts of Europe to countries like Germany. The plan is to make Laos go from landlocked to land-linked.

Men Sam Orn said he appreciated the scope of the project and that it is an example of the long-sighted vision of the leadership in Laos. She said Cambodia was ready to conduct further studies on connecting the transportation route between the two countries through this project.
