Governance and participation in Laos JUNE 2003

This quote captures the focus of this Study. It examines whether the two legs of Good Governance and Participatory Development are in place and propelling the Peopleís Democratic Republic (Lao PDR) forward. Prior to the 1990ís the Lao PDR seemed to be standing primary on its ìdevelopment leg,î focused on building infrastructure and socio-eco-nomic projects, with minimal public participation. In 1990, the Government of the Lao PDR (GOL), with support from its international assistance partners, began to develop the rudiments for Good Governance and Participatory Development: the Constitution, legal codes, the National Assembly, the judicial branch, research institutes, the national auditing system, tax collection, and enforcement bodies.
