Monitoring Monitoring

In order to ensure that NT2 is developed and operates in accordance with all applicable standards, various types of monitoring are conducted on Project activities. In addition to internal mechanisms that constantly scrutinise implementation of all aspects of the Project, external monitoring is carried out by Lao government agencies plus internationally recognised independent panels especially established for the task. These closely monitor the Project’s development, and will continue to scrutinise its implementation.
