Laos is continuing to expand its trade openness (entry into the WTO in January 2013) and its accessibility strategy to leave behind its status of isolated country and attract foreign investors (mining, hydroelectricity, plantations). On the international political scene, Laos hosted the 9th Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) with the slogan of “Friends for Peace, Partners for Prosperity.” A few weeks previously, the emerging civil society was authorized to organize the Asia-Europe People’s Forum (AEPF) with a slogan different from that of the official summit: “People’s Solidarity against Poverty and for Sustainable Development: Challenging Unjust and Unequal Development, Building States of Citizens for Citizens”—perhaps a first step toward giving civil society a larger role.
In 2012, GRET notably extended two drinking water supply support projects (MIREP for four years, and MADEVIE for one year).
