WELCOME TO AUSTCHAM LAO PDR

The Australia Chamber of Commerce was established in September 2005, as the first foreign chamber of commerce in the Lao PDR. Austcham Lao was set up to represent Australian and New Zealand business interests to government and non-government agencies in Laos whilst delivering a range of services to its members. But over the years we have become more than that. We have grown to be one of the largest and most active foreign chambers of commerce in Lao PDR. And we work across the business community to help to support and grow the Lao PDR economy and uplift the operating environment. Our membership is now from many different countries and spans companies in a diverse range of industries including mining, agriculture, banking, tourism, UXO clearance, consumer goods distribution, hospitality and hydropower and we continue to see more interest in membership with Austcham from other sectors.

Our role has evolved to bring the business community of Lao PDR together, whether that be individuals doing business, government officials wanting to know more about the industries we represent, existing businesses wanting to grow their interests in the market or new business wanting to enter for the first time. And as to being from Australia or New Zealand – we like to welcome everyone to what we see as a growing and exciting business community here in the Lao PDR.
