He added that he was “satisfied with the development of the project, and hope that it can be put into operation within this calendar year.”

Premier Chitmany also urged project management to accomplish the resettlement work and help the immigrants come back to their normal life, and that the Ministry of Energy and Mines of Laos, as well as the local governments of Bokeo Province could give full support to the project.

The head of the China Southern Power Grid International Co., Ltd. saidthat CSG International “would spare no effort to finish the project and the resettlement, setting an example in deepening the cooperation in other electricity projects between CSG and Laos and further contributing to the economic development of Laos”.

The Hardmoauk resettlement site is the largest one among all resettlement sites of the Nam Tha 1 Hydropower Project. With immigration work completed in 2016, the site to date has 566 households with more than 3,000 residents.
