Lao Business delegation to the Czech Republic October 2019
ECCIL in cooperation with the Lao National Chamber, the Czech Chamber of Commerce and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic organised the first Czech-Lao Business Forum in Prague on October 19th.
ECCIL has adopted a new strategy which aims at “Making Europe the Preferred Business Partner of the Lao PDR” which basically means promoting trade and investment in two directions. The Czech-Lao Business Forum was the first event in Europe specifically designed to meet that particular target. To this end a Lao business delegation, consisting of 16 representatives of companies and business organisations, travelled to the Forum to have B2B meetings with Czech enterprises. Another part of the event consisted of a presentation of business and investment opportunities in Lao PDR and its Special Economic Zones.
The event was attended by over 50 business representatives and hosted by the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs. ECCIL was represented by its Executive Director, Dr. Ramon Bruesseler, LNCCI by its President, Mr. Oudet Souvannavong.
