I really enjoy spending time in Laos, sometimes thought about moving there for the right opportunity.  If I had the money I'd start a restaurant there.  Problem is, I think foreigners have a lot of restrictions placed on them on owning or renting property, so I don't how to get set up.

Why can't they look across the border and see how well the others countries are doing . Even Burma has open up and encourage foreign investment. The commie that are in charge either they too greedy or not thinking of the future.

Burma has opened up, but the same people are still in power behind the scenes. They just did it to boost the economy and get richer.

I think things will change in Laos. More people are becoming aware of Laos and are traveling there. There's a lot of foreigners visiting Laos and posting videos of their travels up on Youtube. I think a good business to have would be a hotel or tour company- if you do it right. If you look at some of the reviews on hotels in Laos on yelp and other similar sites, you'll find that some foreigners are disappointed in regards to customer service, cleanliness, upkeep and the quality of the rooms. I remember one particular review that showed the shower door was installed incorrectly. So I think that a hotel that prioritizes quality and customer service would do very well but it would take a lot of work.

Laos is a developing nation. In terms of business, it means that if you can do it better than anyone else in the country then you'll probably be successful. Since there's not a lot in Laos, you can basically bring any type of business in and have moderate success, I think. And if you're the first of your type of business and you build up your brand reputation, treat people right then you can probably build a business empire. Yes I KNOW it's a crazy thought because it's Laos. But things change and cultures change and I do think that Laos will become more prosperous.

Also, Laos is in the middle of SE Asia,which is definitely an advantage. If I was a billionaire, I would build a transportation network that connects the different countries to each other. Bullet trains, regular transport and cargo trains, airport terminals. I know there's already trains and planes in Laos but I would expand the network and connect the country.

Then I would start an Air Conditioning supply and maintenance company  Grin Grin

Applause this I agree . I think cause we are land lock and pretty stable in that region. I think a nuclear power plant and provide the area with power. That's a great idea.

  If the Japanese lack the technological sophistication to safely use nuclear power, i.e.; Fukushima, what confidence could one have in Laotian technological sophistication?

  Perhaps some kind solar powered ceiling fans would help with heat and if priced right would be affordable.

  Lacking oceanic ports makes trade difficult. One reason why America became so powerful; no country can match the number of natural world class ports we have. Combined with America's navigable inland waterways makes shipping so easy and cheap here. Sadly almost all landlocked countries are the poorest in their region.

Wind and solar farms to produce more electricity to export to neighboring countries. Since Laos is landlocked, it would be good to concentrate on exports and limit imports. Are the goods that Lao people purchase for daily use produced in Laos or outside the country?I think that's something  to look into.Toilet paper company anyone?  Cheesy 

There's a lot of landlocked countries in Europe that are quite prosperous, like Switzerland. I think the Lao people could benefit from studying their economy and also learning from the mistakes of neighboring countries, like Thailand,  in their quest for wealth.

Of course one of us could write an epic fantasy novel like Lord of the Rings,promote the hell out of it to the point that it becomes a best seller and  have the movie version filmed in Laos Peter Jackson style  Grin Grin

  The hard part about limiting imports, especially from China, is that people want the electronics and other goods Laos cannot make.

Also Switzerland was historically (William Tell era) a very poor area with terrible roads. Most landlocked countries have it tough; Bolivia, Central African Republic, Afghanistan. True, Kazakhstan is doing well, they have oil.

  Since Laos has no oil, maybe they could export some of their excellent beer!

That's good about Switzerland! They started off poor like Laos and then turned their country around. Very inspirational.

The problem is the people in charge are close minded creedy communist. Nobody wanna invest in a country
like that to much corruption. They don't think or care for the future of Lao . They just wanna stuff their fat pocket today. Look how well South Korea turn out. They invested
in education and look how well its paying off. They are making everything and exporting it.
