The 5th Thai–Lao Friendship Bridge, when completed, will greatly benefit the development of border economic zone in both Bueng Kan and Bolikhamxai provinces, and contribute to economic growth, and trade and investment activities between Thailand and Lao PDR.

It will also facilitate transport of goods from Thailand to Southern China, especially “rubber” which is Bueng Kan’s economic crop, and from the Central part of Lao PDR to Laem Chabang Seaport.

The 5th Thai–Lao Friendship Bridge will also help promote people-to-people relations and tourism activities, particularly along the tri-country route “Thailand-Lao PDR-Vietnam”. (TNA)
