Ms Sukanyavady Chaleunxay, an Executive Board member of the Chaleunxay Export Company that has several solar cell development projects in Thailand, said, We have seen that Laos, particularly Vientiane Province, has a potential for the development of renewable solar power, so we have made a decision to conduct the feasibility study on a solar farm.
