Trade and Economic Cooperation

Belarus considers Laos as an important area of foreign trade policy in the Southeast Asia.

The Belarus-Laos trade turnover is not stable. Belarusian export is not diversified enough and depends mainly on the supply of special-purpose products.

A Belarus-Laos Joint Commission on Bilateral Cooperation has been established.

In July, 2017 the third session of the Commission took place in Minsk.
