Lao PDR face-to-face meeting
The APG assessment team of Lao PDR met with authorities over three days from 19 to 21 April 2023 in Vientiane to discuss the third draft of the mutual evaluation report. The assessment of Lao PDR commenced in 2019 but was postponed by COVID 19 travel restrictions at the outset of 2020. The full on-site visit was then completed in September 2022.
As the final visit to authorities, the face-to-face meeting in April discussed the third draft of the report, with final report of Lao PDR to be discussed and adopted at the APG annual meeting in Vancouver, Canada during the week of 9 July 2023. Subsequent to the July annual meeting the full report will be published on the APG website.
During the face-to-face meetings, the assessment team met with all relevant agencies and the Prime Minister, Mr Sonexay Siphandone.
