PetroTrade envisages future opportunities where economic competition will become much more intense owing to implementation of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) and the rising domestic consumption of energy in response to the government’s policy of bolstering national economic growth and turning Lao PDR from a land locked country into a land-linked hub of the region. Additionally, oil traders will adjust themselves to meet the needs in the market where consumer behavior keeps changing.
*Strategic Planning of 2014
Gas Stations: Rest Areas & Meeting Points
PetroTrade plans to expand its service points, especially PLUS Platinum Stations, which provide refuelling and car maintenance services, convenience stores, food stores, coffee shops and car care service in both Lao PDR and neighboring countries. Fifty branches are expected to be established by 2018 and this will not only create value added to gas stations but also fulfil customer demand as the stations also serve as rest areas and meeting places.
For other types of PLUS gas stations, an addition of 250-300 branches will be established.
