Today we are here to celebrate the Grand Opening of Romania-Laos Business Council. It is a moment to look into the past and into the future.


Academician Mircea Constantinescu


The bilateral relations between Romania and Lao People’s Democratic Republic entered a new era, developing beyond the usual traditional diplomatic, political, economical and cultural standards.

Romania is a trustworthy member of European Union, integrating itself into the large family of European nations. The highly trained specialists are appreciated all over the world and the boundaries of European Union are only symbolic limits in a globalizing world. And Romania is going global too.

Lao People’s Democratic Republic is a continuously growing and fast developing country. It has all the attributes of a modern nation. The political stability of the country allowed foreign investments and economical relations and partnerships in all areas of activity.

Lao people have access to local and global information, and people all over the world got directly access to information about Lao, about the Lao men and women, about Lao economical potential, culture, religion, history and natural beauties.

During the last years tourism, as an important component of the Lao economy, developed at a tremendous pace. 2012 was the boom in tourism. Prof. dr. Bosengkham Vongdara, the Lao Minister of Information, Culture and Tourism underlined that “tourist arrivals climbed to 3.3 million in 2012, generating income of about US$500 million. Political stability, improved transport and the country’s picturesque scenery make Laos an attractive tourist destination.” This reality is a proof of the synergetic effect of putting information, culture and tourism under the same umbrella, under the same leadership, as part of the Laos national strategic development plan.

We are very proud that Lao People’s Democratic Republic was awarded this year in May, ”The 2013 Best World Destination”, and we are confident that the new Romania-Laos Business Council will bring a significant contribution to the economy of both countries, for the benefit of the well being of the people of Romania and Lao.

We congratulate Mr. Mihai Prundianu, the Council president, for the initiative, and wish him and his team a successful activity together with our Laos partners.
