BFL already participated in major projects financing in the Lao PDR in different sectors such as energy, industry, real estate, and hospitality. “We are proud of our contribution to the local economy, and we will continue to do our best to finance its development in the coming decades. We are part of the 17th banking group in the world, and Laos has a particular significance as it is the first country in Southeast Asia where our group invested, before Thailand, Cambodia or Myanmar. In this regard, the financing agreement with LHSE perfectly meets our goals as we know that the energy sector in Laos is full of potential, not only in hydro but also in renewable energies.” – Mr. Bounmy, the Deputy Managing Director of BFL said.
