Laos to sell Xayaburi electricity to Cambodia: report


Laos plans to sell electricity from the proposed Xayaburi dam across the Mekong River to Cambodia, Lao Energy Minister Soulivong Daravong was quoted as saying yesterday.

The US-based water news service Ooska News said Soulivong announced the plan on the sidelines of a meeting of Asean energy ministers in Phnom Penh last week.

"The Lao minister...also denied claims that Vietnam and Cambodia oppose construction of the dam," the report from Vientiane said. "He insisted that the project will not be shelved."

Although China has several dams across the Mekong in the Upper Mekong Basin, the proposed Xayaburi dam in northern Laos would be the first mainstream dam in the lower basin.

Until now, the Thai developers have said that most of the electricity generated by the controversial Xayaburi project would be sold to Thailand with a small amount going to Laos.

Cambodia and Vietnam have voiced concerns about the dam's impact on Mekong fisheries and sediment flows. The dam will be the first mainstream project in the Lower Mekong Basin region.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber

As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
