Study of Electrical vehicles use to be conducted

  (KPL) Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA) will help Lao PDR to conduct a feasibility study on the use of electrical vehicles to ensure a long-term growth of economic development.
The study was discussed at a meeting between technical staff of Ministry of Public Works and Transport and the JICA in Vientiane Capital on 31 January.
The meeting was co-chaired by Director of Transport Department, Ministry of Public Works and Transport, Mr. Viengsavat Siphandone and country representative of JICA to Laos, Mr. Yuzurio Susumu.
The Lao PDR is developing hydroelectricity power sector with the hope of becoming the battery of ASEAN region. Seeing as a highly potential development of hydroelectricity power of Laos, a clean and stability power that is safer than using fuel energy that has been imported in a huge volume each year and expensive that will be run out in the future, so JICA proposed Laos to use the electrically powered vehicles.
In 2009-2010 the global crisis of petrol was affected leading to the government has issued a policy on promoting the sustainable public transportation by using vehicle run by electricity or battery.
Vientiane Capital Bus Enterprise Company has been authorised to import 10 electrical mini buses are on service in the society at the moment. But the use of bus has not been conducted any study, which led to following happen. Now relevant sectors are on solution approach together.
The possible study, the JICA will help studying the basic information countrywide.
The JICA will assess the best lesson on public transport system used by electrical energy worldwide and then proper system matching Lao situation will be proposed.
This project is to promote the use of electrically powered vehicles and will help Laos become the leading country in the ASEAN region, said Mr. Viengsavat.
