The team was mainly focused on the implementation of RMG for routine and recurrent maintenance activities and showed interest in learning about the implementation modality adopted by RAP3 and other projects such as SNRTP. The government of Laos is particularly interested in developing the concept of community contracting not only for roads but other types of social infrastructure. The study team visited two roads Naubise-Chautara-Melamchi (23DR013) and Melchaur(F31) - Bhaise(H03) (23DR040) and talked with the RMG working there.
