The report is about the Laos 7th national socio-economic development plan (2011-2015). The aims are to achieve sustainable economic growth and reduce poverty (and inequality), and guide the country graduating from its Least Developed Country status by 2020.

The plan underscores the importance of achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), protecting the environment, maintaining political stability and peace, having an open economy integrated into the regional (ASEAN community) and world economy, and focusing on the quality of growth. The report cover the opportunity and challenges of socio-economic development in 2011-2015 as well as the strategic direction of the national plan. The Implementation Mechanism for the National Socio‐Economic Development Plan for the period of 2011-2015 are also included.
