The Sam Sang project makes an effort to achieve to improve citizen living standard in local community that had focused on rural villages which are poor, not be good infrastructure, low income and other facilities

The comparative case study is examined depending on qualitative data from field survey based on Sam Sang project implementation in Pakseuang village, Luangpabang district and Nayangneua village, Nambak district, Luangpabang province, Lao PDR. The study discloses Sam Sang project implementation synopsis, influential factors of succeed and failure, and the particular roles of

Pakseuang case. A set of fourteen issues based on local government
leadership and villages participation with the respective success factors of
implementing project such as roles of district chief, and roles of public
organization in district level
and villagers participation, and working process
that played important roles on implementing Sam Sang project to create

failed on public officials in district facilitated to stimulate job creation such as
supporting capital sources and job training
and villager participation on
solving problem, decision-making with the issue that happened on Sam Sang

government may consider the recommendations for sustainable development and improvement of Sam Sang project in phase II. The comparative study makes space to forward research and development and speeds up more profound analysis of research problem by using the theories, methods, concepts and contents used. Besides that, a comparative study could be made between two consecutive Sam Sang cycles of the same province or among two or more districts of different areas for Sam Sang project implementation in future. Finally, the study can be utilized by local government officials, policy implementers, researchers and development partners in the field of rural development programs in Laos.
