Boten SEZ eyeing investment of over US$11 billion

VIENTIANE (Vientiane Times/ANN) – Boten Special Economic Zone (SEZ) in Luang Namtha province is anticipating investment of at least US$10 billion to fully develop the site, according to a zone representative.

The zone borders on Bohan in Yunnan province, China, and is part of the rapidly-growing economic cooperation between Laos and China.

In 2016 the zone covered 16.4 sq km but is now being extended to over 700 hectares. A full range of utilities is being installed along with a six-lane highway and other infrastructure.
