Laos Stops Chinese-backed Tourism Development After Villagers Complain


Recommended Posts

A Chinese development project in Laos has been suspended indefinitely after pushback from local villagers and merchants.

In mid-January, developers had begun initial surveys in Phoudindeng, Huai Sa-ngoa and Pakpo villages, located near scenic Vang Vieng, about four hours north of Vientiane.

Those are just three of 22 villages that would be affected by the project, managed by the Chinese firm Lao-Vang Vieng New Area Development Company.

A tourism official from Vang Vieng, meanwhile said the company was merely “exploring the possibilities for what can be done.”

Yeah right. Let them "explore" their own country about what can be done, and stay there.
