• Support mission 1: Formulation of General Budget Support programme.
  • Support mission 2: Budget Support conditionalities for the education sector.

The objective of this assignment was to support the EU Delegation in Lao PDR and the Government in formulating a budget support programme. The assignment involved two experts that undertook the core analysis of the current social and economic situation in the context of the national development strategy. Specific attention was given to the macroeconomic situation and the status of the public financial management system. Sector policies in the priority areas of health and education were assessed to determine the policy objectives and disbursement criteria for the programme. The analysis provided the basis for discussions between the EU Delegation and the Government for agreement on the budget support operation.
