LAO PDR

Kirloskar pumps have changed the economy of Lao PDR from an importer of food grains to becoming a self-sufficient nation. About 7,500 pumps worth over US$3.1 million have increased the land under irrigation from 15,000 hectares in 1996 to over 140,000 hectares, increasing the rice production from 20,000 tonnes / annum to over 500,000 tonnes / annum.
