Laos Introduction





Laos is a country in Southeast Asia. It is a tropical land of mountains and thick forests drenched by heavy rains. Laos has rich soil and valuable mineral deposits, but its economy has never been developed.

The country's official name is the Lao People's Democratic Republic. Vientiane is its capital and largest city.

A Short Background

In 1975 the communist Pathet Lao took control of the government, ending a six-century-old monarchy. Initial closer ties to Vietnam and socialization were replaced with a gradual return to private enterprise, an easing of foreign investment laws, and the admission into ASEAN in 1997.
