Laos’ electricity exports to neighboring countries and ASEAN states are expected to increase to about 20,000 megawatt (MW) between 2020 and 2030. Electricity is considered a huge revenue earner for Laos, especially through exports to neighboring countries and ASEAN states such as Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia, Myanmar and Singapore, local daily Vientiane Times reported on Wednesday, reports Xinhua. Electricity is exported from Laos to ASEAN countries through Thailand by a transmission line. The power is first supplied to Malaysia and then sent through a Malaysian transmission line to Singapore, according to updated information on the Lao People’s Democratic Republic Trade Portal website
