Laos to Maintain 24-Hour Security During ASEAN Summit - 2004-10-29


Laos' Prime Minister has ordered the Defense Ministry, as well as the Ministry of Internal Security and the Vientiane government, to jointly maintain a 24-hour security in the capital city during the ASEAN summit in late November.

Meanwhile, the minister of finance acknowledges that widespread corruption has prevented revenue collection from reaching its target goal.

On a positive note, a World Bank official says the Bank will certainly approve loan guarantees for the controversial Nam Theun 2 hydro-power project if it will help reduce poverty in that communist nation.
