Project Scope:
The GMS Sustainable Tourism Development Project (GMS-STDP) in Lao PDR is mainly financed by
a US$ 10 million grant from the Asian Development Bank with additional budgetary resources of
$0.87 million sourced from the Government of Lao PDR. The Lao National Tourism Administration

project in the 9 target provinces of Champasak, Salavanh, Savannakhet, Vientiane Province,
Houaphanh, Oudomxay, Sayabouli, Bokeo and Luang Namtha.

The expected impacts of the Project are the development of a sustainable, culturally and
environmentally sound, pro-poor approach to tourism in the GMS and the preservation of natural and
cultural heritage. Expected project outcomes in Lao PDR are poverty reduction, sustainable
development, protection of the natural and cultural heritage and protection of vulnerable groups from
exploitation. To achieve this goal the project seeks to enhance the protection and conservation of
natural, cultural and urban heritage assets of importance for tourism; increase tourism’s contribution
to poverty reduction by expanding the traditional community-based tourism approach to include
tourism-related supply and value chains interventions; improve the facilitation of tourism along the
economic corridors by improving services and management of tourist attractions found there; raise
public sector official’s tourism management skills at the national, provincial, district and site level;
improve service and hygiene standards among staff in small to medium hospitality enterprises; and
enhance local private sector participation in small and medium scale tourism enterprise investment
and operation.

There are 5 parts of the project in Lao PDR:
Part 1.A: Biodiversity Conservation and Protection through Tourism at the Siphandone Wetland
Part 1.B: Urban Environment Protection and Management - Vang Vieng Town Waste Water
Centralization and Treatment
Part 2: Pro-Poor Tourism Development in Salavanh, Vientiane Province, Houaphanh, Oudomxay,
Sayabouli and Bokeo
Part 3: Facilitation of Tourism on the North-South (Part 3.A) and East-West (Part 3.B) Economic
Corridors
Part 4: Human Resource Development
Part 5: Institutional Strengthening and Implementation Assistance

The GMS-STDP also includes the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam where the project shares the same
goal and expected outcomes. Implementation, coordination and management of the project in Viet
Nam is the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism in 5 target provinces of Bac Kan, Cao Bang,
Quang Binh, Quang Tri, and Thua Tien Hue. The East-West Economic Corridor traverses Quang Tri
and Savannakhet provinces in Central Lao PDR and Central Viet Nam. Other target provinces that
share common borders are Thua Tien Hue in central Viet Nam and Salavanh in southern Lao PDR.
Summary of Project Progress:
Immediately after Grant No. 0117 became effective on 30 March 2009 the PCU implemented a project
orientation and first bi-annual planning meeting with the 9 target provinces and 10 PIU’s. Seven individual
consultants were recruited by the PCU and approved in March-April by the PCU and ADB following Quality and
Cost-based Selection (QCBS) and Quality Based Selection (QBS) procedures. Each PIU and PCU staff has
participated in a 2-day training on the management of the technical and financial aspects of the project,
delivered by core PCU staff and project consultants. In addition, the project accountant joined the ADB Lao
PDR Mission’s periodic Management of ADB financed projects training in Vientiane from 5-7 May 2009.

Through 30 June 2009, the project has not experienced and significant delays in organizing planned project
activities, funds-flow and reporting to ADSB and the Lao Government (GoL). During the present APP, the
project is concentrating mainly on planning and PIU management capacity building to build a solid base for
project implementation for the upcoming 4 years. The only project activity not completed as scheduled was the
Public Information Workshop in Vientiane, however 9 project introductory meetings were held in the 9 target
provinces. The Public Information Workshop in Vientiane has been postponed until all planning and survey
works are completed, which is expected to be in September-October 2009.

international consultants, and began purchasing necessary equipment and supplies for the PCU and
each PIU. PCU and PIU staff have been trained by ADB and senior project managers in ADB and
GoL accounting procedures and financial management. The PCU has also produced a Lao-
language, 93 page GMS-STDP in Lao PDR Project Administration Manual for distribution to PIU’s,
that contains information on: (i) project goals, outcomes and outputs; (ii) organizational structure; (iii)
financial management, accounting, contracting and tender procedures; (iv) activity planning and
reporting; (v) auditing procedures and applicable financial laws and regulations, and; (vi) provides
various standardized project-related forms and instructions.

problems were experienced during this reporting period. The main concern is that the project was
unable to recruit an international Human Resource (HR) specialist to draft the project’s Human
Resource Development Action Plan (2009- 2014) and Contract Packages to Support Implementation
of the Plan. Remedial actions are to recruit an international but Lao PDR-based HR specialist to
carry out the desired works in July – August 2009.

Proposed program of activities during the next quarter: A program of proposed activities for the
next quarter is shown in attachment A.

Modifications to proposed implementation schedule: Minor modifications to proposed
implementation schedule are reflected in the above paragraphs and postponement of the project’s
Public information Workshop in Vientiane.
Percentage of implementation progress: Planning, training and preparatory works completed
during this quarter reasonably constitute an estimated 8% of overall project completion.
