Hmong groups began a gradual southward migration in the 18th century due to political unrest and to find more arable land. A number of Hmong people fought against the communist-nationalist Pathet Lao during the Secret War in Laos. Hmong people were singled out for retribution when the Pathet Lao took over the Laotian government in 1975, and tens of thousands fled to Thailand seeking political asylum. Thousands of these refugees have resettled in Western countries since the late 1970s, mostly the United States but also Australia , France , French Guiana , and Canada . Others have been returned to Laos under United Nations -sponsored

Laos Market Profile -- U.S. Commercial Service Thailand
Laos is one of five remaining communist countries in the world. Although it continues its transition to a market economy, the legacy of communism continues to weigh on both governance and the economy. Thailand, Vietnam, and China dominate the Lao economy, with heavy participation in certain sectors by Korea, France, Japan, India, Malaysia, Singapore and Australia.  American companies play almost no role in Laos. Human capacity in Laos is low and finding skilled workers a major challenge.   Statistics from the Economist Intelligence Unit and U.S. Government, for 2008 except where noted: Laos ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Japan's Multilateral Gambit: Leading the Charge Toward an East Asian Community
If Japan was a person, it would be an exceptionally wealthy yet rapidly aging individual, who, for two decades, had been struck by illness. One might therefore find it unexpected for this person to be busily working on constructing the new face of Asian regional economic cooperation. This, nevertheless, is exactly what Japan is doing. Since the Democratic Party of Japan crushed the dominant Liberal Democratic Party in the August 2009 elections, the new Japanese administration, led by Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama, has been articulating its vision for a new, integrative regional economic body in Asia, the East Asian Community (EAC). market trends, news research and surveys resources

How do I get to Hanoi, Vietnam from Bangkok, Thailand? | Ask ...
My flight is to Bangkok, and I expect to stay several days while I wait for my visa application for Vietnam to clear. It's too late for me to arrange it here, so I will attempt to get one while I'm in Bangkok. I've been told that it shouldn't take more than 4 or 5 days. Is this correct?
