History of Aid to Laos

Motivations and Impacts

History of Aid to Laos is the first comprehensive study of development assistance to the aid-dependent country of Laos. The book investigates the situation of a country dependent on foreign aid for more than half a century and the ways in which donor nations have shaped its development and political relationships through the aid process.

After decades of foreign aid, Laos is left with a continuing dependence on development assistance, a status as one of the world’s Least Developed Countries (LDC), and a host of new and old problems such as human trafficking, drug addiction, lack of human resources, and environmental degradation.

About the Author

Viliam Phraxayavong, an associate of the Australian Mekong Resource Centre, was director of international economic cooperation in the Royal Lao Government from 1964 to 1975.
