Japan Business Network (JBN) - Laos

We guide Japanese companies to success.

PricewaterhouseCoopers (Lao) Sole Company Limited (PwC Laos) was established in the Lao People’s Democratic Republic (Lao PDR) in 1996. PwC Laos currently employs more than 90 people, including both Lao and non-Lao nationals.

Our experience has given us a thorough understanding of the local Lao market and enables us to provide our clients with a wide range of professional services. In particular, our position has allowed us to build up strong relationships with key ministries, financial institutions and both commercial and aid-funded organisations. We also have extensive experience in policies and procedures covering investment, tax, accounting and consulting in Lao PDR.
