World Bank - Lao PDR
The World Bank is one of the world’s largest sources of development assistance. It is a development Bank which provides loans, policy advice, technical assistance and knowledge sharing services to low and middle income countries to reduce poverty. The Bank promotes growth to create jobs and to empower poor people to take advantage of these opportunities. The World Bank Group’s mission is to fight poverty and improve the living standards of people in the developing world, thus it supports the efforts of developing country governments to build schools and health centres, provide water and electricity, fight disease, and protect the environment.
