Agreement signed with the Japanese Ambassador to Laos for the construction of a Submersible Bridge in Laos.

JIP is currently preparing to construct a Submersible Bridge in the Lao People’s Democratic Republic.
Since the completion of the bridge in Myanmar in 2022, JIP has been investigating the possibility of constructing a Submersible Bridge in other countries, and found that the neighbouring country, Lao PDR, also has villages that become isolated during the rainy season, making a Submersible Bridge highly useful. However, it took a long time to realise the project because of the high hurdle of building a relationship with the Lao government, local residents and the contractor from scratch. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan has now finally agreed to provide financial support, and an agreement was signed with the Japanese Ambassador to Laos in Vientiane, the capital of Laos. If all goes well, we will be able to build the first Submersible Bridge in Laos by the end of this year. We would like to thank you for all your continued support.

The signing ceremony was reported in the local newspaper Vientiane Times.
