Lao Football Federation Headquarters

An official opening ceremony was held on 13 November in the presence Viphet Sihachakr President of Lao Football Association and a number of senior officials concerned.
The goal of the construction is to create a promising future for the children, together with the Government and the people of Laos, as a symbol of exchange between Laos and Japan, we are proposing a construction in the shape of a soccer ball in Laos which can be used as the place to enable the children of Laos to realize their dreams and hopes through soccer.
There are all kinds of proposals for its use, such as using it as the place for soccer players (former players and persons concerned) to offer training, instructions and classes or as a place to provide sound education through sports.

The World Bank Group (WBG) is planning to build a new office and facilities for its staff by early 2016. The event to celebrate the new office was held on Monday in Xieng Ngeun village in Chanthabouly district, Vientiane. Deputy Minister of Finance Ms Thipphakone Chanthavongsa and the World Bank Vice President for East Asia and the Pacific Region Mr Axel van Trotsenburg attended the ceremony.

The three-storey Lao inspired building will accommodate 100 staff members and will be going green with a solar energy system, rainwater collection, emphasis on natural lighting, a sewage treatment plant and use of various sustainable materials.

The office, which will house all branches of WBG,including the International Finance Cooperation (IFC), will also feature archeological findings for the public to view.

The project of this new building is a testament to WBG’s long term commitment in developing a strong partnership with the Lao government and its people.

Laos became a member of the World Bank more than 50 years ago and joined the IFC in 1998. The first WBG office was built in 1999, near the Patuxay monument.

The partnership between Lao government and WBG has evolved and strengthened over the decades, with their aim of reducing poverty and promoting shared prosperity. World Bank has also provided over US$1.4 billion in grants and interest-free credits, analytical work and policy advice on key development issues in Laos.
