What type of business would you create in Lao ?
18th Apr, 2017 at 5:38pm
 
If you had some fund , I'm just curious what type of
business would you like to start in Lao. We have all seen
like ex-pat gone back home and started some sort of business to help out their fellow countrymen. As for
me I would like to start a investment company. More like
encouraging foreign company to invest in Lao. I realize
we don't have skill workforce maybe more something along
manufacturing.

No one wants to start a business there because you get so little money and the commies interfere with everything, but I know a few Thais who go there to sell food/clothes. They just cross the border and trade.

Selling drugs is very profitable in Laos. J/K. I would never sell anything that would harm a human being. I don't even like buying beer for friends to be honest and it's not because I am cheap. I would have no issue buying them lunch or dinner.

Beer has become a part of Lao culture in this day as age whether people like it or not.

Back in the old days, dancing on the streets of Laos and sharing beers with friends and family and splashing water on each other during Lao New Year celebrations wouldn't be acceptable in Lao society, now it's considered normal.

If you're a tourist visiting Laos and you don't buy your friend a beer when you know they love drinking beer then it will give you a bad reputation.

They obviously need something to drink with their food when you take them out to lunch or dinner. Are you going to tell them "look, pal, you can order any drink you like except a beer?"

And please be aware that when Lao people drink beer, they don't just drink a single glass of beer. They drink many bottles of beer.

You have a good point. It's not really a joke because some gang members in Laos actually sell drugs to make a living.

You may see people running a normal business such as a clothing store or a night club to conceal to the general public about their illegal drug activities, so people believe that yeah they drive a luxury car, or yeah they are rich with nice house because we can see that they run a business, but in reality their business isn't their primary source of income.

What they are actually doing behind their business, the drug trade, is being hidden from the public eye.

Most businesses in Laos make a living the correct way, so I'm not saying that all businesses are involved in the drug trade, but there's a small minority of rich people in Laos who are, and I believe in Karma.

They certainly pay the cops to cover up their drug activities. That's what you do in Laos, you can have a motor vehicle accident in Laos and pay the cops to get away with it.

But you can't buy Karma. Buddha up there can see what you are doing. If you do good things or bad things in your life, you will soon see it. You won't see it straight away but one day you will see it with your own eyes before you die. That's what the elders taught me.

For example, if you donate to Buddhist Temples, or the poor people on the streets, in the future you may be wealthy. You may never be wealthy but you will live a more happier and healthier life than those who have done bad things.

Keep doing the things that makes you good inside, even if that means starting up a business in Laos in the future and play your part in helping the people.

We also have to think about the things we do, just in case we return to Earth or another planet, or whether there is life in Heaven for us. Nobody wants to suffer in their life or after their death.

It really depends on the type of restaurant that you're interested in.

A noodle type of restaurant wouldn't be expensive, however the start up costs of a buffet style restaurant would be high but will result to higher profits.

I was considering more of a dive bar and small restaurant with a US midwestern theme.  Think small town Nebraska.
