Lao people in 50 years ago, they live happily in Laos without thinking about money. It is kind of self sufficient.

But since we are now can see the world through internet, tv, radio, newspaper, etc
Human start thinking how to make more and more money,
this drive them crazy and want to have more and more.

If we compare our country with some country in Africa, we will be happy.
Because those countries, they even don't have water to drink, no forests to find food, and many diseases.

It is time for us to re-think, and live our life in a sustainable way. That's doesn't mean we need to live in poor condition, but know what we really want.

it's a kind of bitter piece of medicine that is hard to swallow, the government know well about the lao curruptor officials in every fields, know well about the drug smugglers, know well about the forest destructors, I really don't understand what it is waiting for to eradicate these obstacles ?

Im not Lao, but I had been in Lao for 3 months and during my stay I get to love the country and the people. Im also from an asian country that is relatively and technically richer compared to Lao. But I have never seen in Lao the extreme poverty that I have observed in my own country. In Lao you can rarely see people in really filthy clothes begging from other people for money or food, an eye sore that I have seen in my own country and in other parts of asia, even in the U.S. I think the resiliency of Lao people is relatively stronger. The general perception to the country is that they are too dependent on foreign aid, but I think that only applies to those in the position who are exercising extreme corruption.  From what I observed in the many rural, hard-to-reach villages that I have been to in Lao, I did not see the local people benefiting at all from what we call "foreign aid." Their life is still as laid back as in my country 25 years ago. But they manage to survive, living a very simple, healthy and honorable life (e.g. not getting involved with prostitution, drug trafficking, etc). They will not starve because food is abundant around their house and that being the only way to survive, made them value hard work and resourcefulness. Actually they eat a lot of healthy food... who needs junkfood from Mc Donalds when you have organic rice, fruits and vegetables that are free!

So what will happen to Lao without foreign aid.... I think they will survive, the ordinary people that comprise the majority will survive. ... they will continue to share silly jokes, laugh out loud, drink Beerlao! As long as they keep their resiliency, their hard work, diligence and high respect for one another. We may think they are not educated, but Lao people are not stupid. They just need to be exposed, to be given more training and opportunities to allow themselves to realize their maximum potential.

My Lao friends, remember that high-tech gadgets, cars, internet, they are just tools that are intended to make life simple... but in fact they do the opposite, they make life more complicated and more vulnerable to temptation. Once you got one, you will desire for more. It  will make you unsatisfied and will drive you crazy. They only give "empty happiness." Dont get too obssessed, true happiness comes from within yourself. Continue to value that simple things that you have, your family, your rich culture and traditions.... you will survive no matter what!

Stand proud! Cheers to Lao!

Hmmz. Which part of Laos? Without aid, you never starve. But that's only you. & Laos is not just only you, but 6 million people. Do you know how to think about others? Have you been to the poorest districts of Laos, especially the upland areas?

There are people in Laos who don't have enough rice to eat for the whole year, & would starve if they didn't get foreign aid for food, agriculture, etc.

E.g.

         Of course, you are right .But  Lao people have in common , You could see from the history untill today.  1, corruption.  2. selfish  3. betray their own people ( like to bring other nation to be their boss just to has power for himself) . 4. Jealous among themself.  5. coward.  So without foreign aid Lao gverment will be broke, also wil be collapsed and will not able to pay their emloyees their polices and soldiors. Laos is never Laos but always dominate and under the other country for many years since the Taksin ( Siame took over than the French and soon China or Vietnam I mean indirectly the new way of take over. )

for me . i think laos now needs foreign aids  but  not forever . we need foreing aids but it doesnt mean we are a begger .lets think like we need some one to guide us to new and hi tech in some part of life . our conntry is new world trade . so if we compare with Japs ,USA or some hi-tech country form asia we are so young , young like new baby .can you walk alone with out no help? can you live with out no teach?
so , we need foreign aids but it doest mean we need it forever .. i believe that some day when Laos grow up like adult .we can walk by our legs . but now .i think our Laos country is in learning period .learn how to live as hi-tech country do . learn how to walk by ourself .learning how to not corruption . ......
foreing aids is goood for our country for this time . you know almost road and bridge are built by foreign aid ( if you dont belive me ,you can see at the head of bridge in laos, there are Japs or French ,Aust flegs ) . but we are not like a begger . we could learn from that aids. we learn how have it been build then one day we can do like they did it for us when we have enough money . or you guys like to our Govrn go to world bank .and borrow big money for building all road and bridge ?

  Yes , Lao goverment have to help themselve now.  1. very import before one more step farther. Stop the corruptions now from every field such as  police took money from the drug smugglers and drug dealers becasue a lot of Lao youth are drug addict today and they become the thieves and robbers . Those young kids suppose to be Laos future. 2. Do not depense on the foreign aid and start update the taxes laws so collecting the sell taxes, income taxes, property taxes ,and make it top for the Vietnamese and Chinese  and foreigner who are living and making profit and benefit from Laos pay their fair share in texes. Allow more independent enterprise  from the west  special from thre United States companies to do business in Laos , more jobs , more companies and more taxes and revenue come in the countries. Improving educated the Lao kids up  to the international standard level every part of Laos from the country side if possible . Today is the computer age so all Lao studenst in every school should have computers  . Education is the most important ( science and economy, brain and mind.) that Lao kid need.... When you see Lao begger kids hang around Vientiane instead of school that show the future of Laos. You blam them to be a beggers so look at the Lao goverment is no different every year running around begging for aid years after year for over 3 and half decades and allow the foreign lumber companies destroy the forest ....and what next will be mines..I guess and rent the good farm land to the foreign companies as well  in return for them such as chinese to build the stadium and the University in Vientiane . Of course the Chinese will do because they got a lot of profit from the Lao wood and allow million Chinese people to live in Lao . Building the University so the Chinese children will also study there when you see million of Chinese are living in Laos.

           Laos will be collapse and goverment will not funtion without the foreign aid.
    That is the fact my brother either you like it or not.  But that could be fix if Lao could learn from our own history. That is to be united and get rid of the problem number 1 corruption. 2, make the new taxes law and do not depense on the foreign aid but depense on the taxes money and trade.

          Laos have been living from the foreign aid over 3 and half decades and destroy 70 to 80 percent of the forest ( wood) and the next move are mines and soon that will be gone also. Now Lao are already became the minority of  own country. I just wonder how much longer for the communist party want the Lao people to wait for their promises that never come. Please, change the system before it is too late. Every things are out of control , drugs and the police , and every fields in the goverment.  This corruption system must be stop.

you really sound like someone who grew up in the relative comfort of the city...someone who thinks that the people in the countryside of Laos enjoys life like you ;)

Northern farmers need urgent aid with rats on the rise
Vientiane Times, 30 May 2009

Food-insecure communities in northern Laos are struggling to combat a
rodent plague that is putting already meagre food supplies at risk.

Between 85,000 and 140,000 people in the northern provinces are
estimated to be food insecure and in need of urgent assistance as a
result of the recent rodent outbreaks...

The WFP Laos, with support from district officials from the
departments of Labour and Social Welfare and Agriculture and Forestry, conducted an Emergency Food Security Assessment from March 11-15 this year.

The assessment covered nine districts in the provinces of Luang
Prabang, Oudomxay, Xayaboury and Luang Namtha.

Some secondary information was also obtained on affected districts in
Phongsaly, Huaphan and Bokeo provinces...

While waiting for assistance from the government and international
organisations, provincial authorities have provided basic assistance,
but it remains insufficient.

According to Xayaboury provincial Labour and Social Welfare
Department's Social Welfare Unit Head Nouphone Xaipanyachit, the
provincial authority has provided some rice to severely affected
farmers.

Many farmers have suffered severely. Some don't have any more rice to eat as they have engaged in upland farming and cannot replant after their crops were damaged as other farmers have been able to.”

He said the rice given to affected farmers came from stocks set aside
for flood victims, and the supply was limited.

The Ministry of Labour and Social Welfare has already submitted an
official proposal to the government for assistance, particularly from
international organisations, according to the ministry's Social
Welfare Department Director General Pasith Detphommathed.

        Unless  Lao goverment change the corruption system to none corruption sysytems and have at least one more party to be the competition and police one other from corruption . So if one party corrupted and make mistakes thay will can not be re- elcted for the next term. So when you have the comtutition that party will do much better job  and get thing work quicker and faster in order to be re-elected again. For example so let the people have the choice to buy  a cars which cars are good for them such as Toyota or Honda...etc... Evry year  begging for the foreign aid to feed the goverment officers and never enough so the polices and the officer must corrupted in order to suvive. Well, well...so this system must to be changed. Today Laos wothout the foreign aid the goevrment will be collapsed.

Currently,I live in rich country and make pretty decent income. Believe me or not,my best place to live if I have a choice . It will be countryside in Southern Laos. I love nature,I used to plant sticky rice and find June bugs or snails to eat.  These food have high nutrients. I was living in healthy that I never knew. Beside, no hazardous pollution at all.  Now, I realize the happiest life that ever had in my whole life was in poor country. I never regret to be laotian.

So you could die when you barely made it to 49 to 50 years old average life span for Laotian back then.. All the disceases, flies, malaria and no place to take a sh1t but they normally take a sh1t around their houses. You know how dirty and poor Lao people have been.  Think further some time ok or else you will be as stupid as many Lao people herel. Being a third world is so great then no need for Laos to develop the country just remain poor forever. I am embarrassed to show captial of Laos because it is the most ugly and oldest capital I think of and it is called nakon luang.
Yes, it is easy for you to say you want to go live in the country in Laos but that's because you have money already what about peopple who have  been living there do you think they have money like you. You would have no problem getting your basic needs but they sure will.
