ANZ IN LAOS
ANZ began operating as ANZ Vientiane Commercial Bank Ltd in September 2007 with the purchase of a majority shareholding in the Vientiane Commercial Bank Ltd, a privately owned bank that had been operating in Laos for 14 years.
ANZ moved to 100% ownership in August 2010 and has changed it official name to ANZ Bank (Lao) limited.
ANZ Bank (Lao) Limited being one of the leading International bank’s in Laos aims to be the bank that leads the advancement of the Laos banking sector and operating environment for our customers, staff and key stakeholders. Our aim is to bring international products and standards to Lao PDR to service the region's top Multi-National and Large Local Corporates.
Lao PDR has constantly sought to attract investors through the SEZs from the establishment of Savan-Seno Special Economic Zone (2003) located in central Laos’ Savannakhet Province – a central point of the East-West Economic Corridor; and the Golden Triangle SEZ (2007) located in the sub-Mekong region close to the country’s borders with Myanmar, Thailand, and China. Laos also has eight other specific economic zones that are located near the capital city of Vientiane.
