Aiming to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by 2015 and to graduate from the status as one of least-developed countries (LDCs) by 2020, Laos has grown its economy at a remarkable rate in recent years, with an average of eight percent GDP growth rate over the past five years and a per capita nominal GDP of over 1,000 dollars. Nevertheless, providing access to social services remains difficult in rural areas, and MDGs in the areas of health and education are in danger of not being able to be achieved. As led by ASEAN, from the perspective of economic integration, strengthening connectivity, and correcting disparities within the region, JICA is providing support for balanced economic development that the government of Laos aims for. For Laos, located in the center of the Indochina, JICA is focusing on socioeconomic infrastructure, agricultural development and forest conservation, educational environment and human resource training, and improved health care services.
