History: Laos - Lao people's Democratic Republic - occupies a strategic position in south East Asia. A French protectorate since 1893, Laos became an independent sovereign state within the French Union in 1949. Conflicts among neutralist, communist and conservative factions created a chaotic political situation. On December 2, 1975 the republic was proclaimed.

In the 1980s, Vietnamese aid-military and financial- was the chief support. Since 1988, investment from Thailand and USA has been substantial. In 1997, Laos was admitted to ASEAN.

Chief Crops: The chief products are rice, maize, tobacco, cotton. Major industrial products: Tin, timber and textiles.
