On 6 December 2018, EuroCham Cambodia hosted a breakfast talk on "Business Opportunities in Laos", where our experts from EuroCham Laos and DFDL gave extensive presentations on the current economic climate of Laos, the various opportunities that lie in this yet untapped market, and why to consider Laos as a business destination.
This was the perfect opportunity for those looking to expand their business in South East Asia and get first-hand insights into the various opportunities in sectors with high growth potential in Laos.
