Vientiane Times, 21 August 2014
Authorities will take strong action to secure US$15 million in land lease and concession fees, which have not been paid to State since last year. The move is one of the measures the Ministry of Finance is undertaking to boost revenue collection in order to pursue the target set for collecting domestic revenue at a total of 19,229 billion kip this fiscal year. As of August 12, some 16,705 billion kip or 69 percent of the annual revenue plan has been collected. The measures were presented at a Ministry of Finance meeting held last Friday in Vientiane to discuss ways to accelerate achievement of the revenue target.
