ASEAN

World Bank
The World Bank helped finance the Nam Theun II hydroproject for $5 billion.  After taking $5 billion in debt, Laos claims only 20% in equity in the project. Is this foreign assistance or another collusion between the communist government and foreign consultants to loot Laos of its resources?
Asian Development Bank
The ADB finance educational infrastructure projects in Lao PDR. $200 million was earmarked for the construction of universities and colleges in Laos.  To date, no new college nor universities had been constructed.  Where is the money?
