Laos to Continue Strict Inspection of Sawmills and Wood-Processing Plants
Permalink   


In 2008, Lao authorities inspected 1,333 sawmills and wood-processing plants across the

country, excluding small-sized furniture factories and household enterprises. 280 of those inspected were found to be in compliance with official regulations, while the other 1,053 were found to be in violation, substandard, or operating illegally.

In a related development, the Lao government has approved a logging quota of no more than 200,000 cubic meters for the fiscal year 2008-09, up 25% from last year. It cited the need to meet the rising demand for woods by the wood-processing and construction sectors as the reason for the quota increase.

I usually use the card " Dial network" connect from your landline,the card provides you the user name and password, so some setting and then u can use an internet, but it 's quite slow...
50.000 kip for a card...
