Laos: demand for drinking water is growing in Vientiane

In Vientiane, the capital of Laos, the Vientiane Water Company has been confronted for several years with continuous growth in the demand for drinking water. Since 2009, GRET has been supporting the company to maintain quality of service while at the same time meeting this increase in demand. On 29 June 2015, GRET and the Vientiane Water Company launched the second phase of the Madevie project (Controlling management and development of access to water in Vientiane) with the signature of a contract for assistance to the contracting company. The company needs new investments requiring increasingly significant funding as defined in its masterplan. Over the next 18 months, GRET will support the company to optimise its financial and accounting management tools and the reorganisation of its commercial information management system, which is a pre-condition for obtaining loans to fund its investment programme.
