Geography:
Luang Prabang Logistics Park (LPLP) is expected to function as a regional core of the logistics system in
northern Lao PDR along highway NR-13N. The city of Luang Prabang is specialized as tourism and
administration centre, such that LPLP needs to be located in a place that fulfills the criteria below:
Outside the central town of the World Heritage Minimum disturbance to urban activities in Luang
Prabang

  •  Good accessibility to highway NR-13,
  •  Good accessibility to the Mekong River,
  •  Good accessibility to Luang Prabang city

In consideration of the above, the south-eastern area along highway NR-13 was selected as a potential
site of the LPLP.
In terms of regional connectivity, many national roads in Laos have been upgraded and linked with the
road networks in the neighboring countries. Laos has become one of the priorities in the Belt and Road
Initiative (BRI) of the Chinese government, which aims at increasing connectivity and the economic and
political ties of China with more than 60 countries in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East, mainly through
infrastructure projects.
