About our Laos news

Latest news for Laos, also known as the Lao People's Democratic Republic, Lao PDR, or LPDR, including breaking updates on its politics, economy, and social issues.

Laos, located in Southeast Asia, shares borders with several countries, including China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, and Myanmar. Laos operates as a socialist republic and one party state. The only legal political party is the Lao People's Revolutionary Party (LPRP). This state of affairs means that the General Secretary holds ultimate power and authority over state and government. Laos offers diverse natural beauty, with mountains, waterfalls, and the Mekong River. The country's historical sites (such as the UNESCO World Heritage Sites Luang Prabang, the Plain of Jars, and Vat Phou) showcase its rich architectural and cultural heritage. Laos is also celebrated for its unique traditions and festivals, including the colourful Bun Bang Fai rocket festival and the almsgiving ceremonies. Laos' economy relies primarily on agriculture, including rice cultivation and coffee production, alongside sectors such as hydroelectric power and tourism.
