Luang Prabang: The Mekong River Commission (MRC) will continue to support Laos' bid to develop hydropower on the Mekong mainstream as long as the projects are sustainable, according to a top MRC official.

“MRC is a framework and it supports sustainable development. In that context, if hydropower on the mainstream fits unto that framework, then obviously the member countries are in support of it,” said MRC CEO Hans Guttman.

The chief of the intergovernmental organisation that comprises Laos, Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam made the comment on Wednesday at the 19th Mee ting of the MRC Council in Luang Prabang. A series of MRC meetings, which began on January 14, ended yesterday after member countries and donor organisations reviewed last year's accomplishments and approved a work plan for 2013. Laos is committed to build sustainable hydropower plants to generate revenue for poverty reduction and ensure sustainable growth of the national economy. Within its territory the country has the potential to build more than 100 dams with a total capacity of 30,000MW in the Mekong mainstream.
