Professor Toshiro Nishizawa’s views on Laos was quoted by the Financial Times, September 3, 2020.


Toshiro Nishizawa, a professor at the University of Tokyo’s Graduate School of Public Policy and a member of a fiscal policy team advising Laos, warned of the risk of a “national economic emergency” in the wake of Covid-19.

“A risk of sovereign default is a potential threat to the fiscal operations for Laos, with a resulting hardship to ordinary people in Laos,” said Prof Nishizawa

“External debt services are large enough to add pressure on scarce foreign exchange reserves in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.”
