This report assesses the quality of Lao PDR’s trade statistics by comparing Lao PDR’s export/import data with its trade partners’ import/export data (mirror data). While the mirror technique is constrained by the fact that partners’ data also can have some problems, it is a useful method to obtain a snapshot of the quality of trade data.
