Lao People’s Democratic Republic (Lao PDR) Prime Minister Sonexay Siphandone urged for intensive action to bolster the country’s digital pillars in his address at the Ministerial Level Conference on Blockchain 4.0 Development for Digital Economy Development. Developing the country’s digital economy, digital government, and digital community–which covers areas such as blockchain, artificial intelligence, high speed internet, e-wallet, e-transactions, e-payments, and big data–will help bolster Lao PDR’s socio-economic development.

The Prime Minister noted that use of digital technologies is a global trend furthering the development of smart cities, smart governments, smart economies, smart communities, and smart living.

Lao PDR is implementing the National Digital Economic Development Vision for 2021-2040, the National Digital Economic Development Strategy for 2021-2030, and the National Digital Economic Development Plan for 2021-2025.
