Germany and Laos: two long-standing partners

Germany and Laos have maintained diplomatic relations since 1958. Several thousand Laotians studied in former East Germany. Many Laotian Germany alumni now hold influential positions in politics and business, and are continuing to foster German-Laotian relations in a positive manner. Mining and the energy sector significantly contributes to growth in Laos, yet subsidence farming still prevails in the rural regions.

KfW Development Bank is supporting Laos in the context of Financial Cooperation (FC), as it reduces poverty in rural areas, as well as in the area of resource protection/biodiversity, vocational training and financial sector development.
