In 2012, China Eximbank and the Government of Laos signed a $82.5 million concessional loan for the Oudomxay-Pakmong Section of No. 13 Road (NR13) Rehabilitation Project. The loan carried a 2% interest rate and a 20 year maturity. The purpose of the project was to refurbish the 81.65 km north section of the No.13 Road (NR13), which runs from Pak Mong in Luang Prabang Province to Muang Xay in Oudomasay (Oudomxay) Province. The refurbishment involved upgrading the road surface from one with bituminous surface treatment to asphalt concrete. Yunnan Sunshine Road and Bridge Co., Ltd. and China Railway Third Survey and Design Institute Group Co., Ltd. were the contractors responsible for implementation. A groundbreaking ceremony was held on March 7, 2014, and the project was officially completed and handed over to the Lao Government on June 20, 2016. The Chinese Government also financed the Pakmong-Nateuy Section of No. 13 Road (NR13) Extension Project (see Project ID#64756 and ID#64757).
