It's possibly no water to feed the rice field so young people go to work in Thailand.

Turn them into entertianment revenue. Laos is a land lock nationa and need something more fun for family and party getters. Also this will create jobs and also enforce our young Lao kids to go to college as a number #1 priority then build laos in a bigger ways.

 You hit the right spot brother, the government need to step up to show the technic and train all the Farmers how to grow the Rice and other thing too.. the government need to show them(the Farmers) like Western agriculture, and Western agriculkture is  ''Mechanically Oriented'' In the West, if  the farmer wanted to become more efficient or increase his yield,  he introduced more and more sophisticated equipment, which allowed him to replace human labor with mechaniccal labor.. as far back as histotry is recorded, farmers from across Asia have engaged in the same relentless, intricate pattern of agriculture.

Some empty areas belong to foreign investors.

Right, those land that have no one to havest belong to the rich family, to the local and foreign investors. when children of farmers had chosen to turn their life away from the hard and non profitable farms of their fathers by becoming engineers, teaching staff, mechanics, construction workers and so on...Their parent who are old and have no more force to continue the hard works without the helps of their children...Founding no other solution, at the end, they gave up and sell their farm, the legacy from their ancestors to whom who give better price and the land stay still there without no care, the actual owners don't care much either but wait anxiously for huge profit from it... 10 times or 50 times the sum they invested ...
Yeah ! my old Fellows, every thing has changed...the world belong to those who are rich... Money talk !!! We are not far from what happened in the country side of Thailand of this 21 century...

Linling, i think Laos has enough entertainment places( 18 hole golf courses, resorts, 5 star night clubs, ...) Laos Gov. should transfer those empty lands to poor people who has no land to grow rice to eat.

I totally agree with you.  I am from Las Vegas, which is a landlocked desert.  If not for the tourist attractions, the economy here would greatly suffer.  We also have the hoover dam here, which generates all the needed electricity for this so called "city of lights".  I think Laos should also create dams on the Mekong River and put all the marine life into man-made lakes.  Our manmade lake here in Las Vegas is called Lake Mead, and it is the largest man-made lake in the US.

         Most of the good farm land are flooded  ( Dams)and also are belonged to the foreigner investors to grow the rubber plantation such as the Chinese and Vietnamese and the wealthy rich powerful politician families. Only   10 % of good land are good land for farming and the rest are mountain and jungle which are full of the bombs . Modern farmers need technology and machines such tractors to grow rice and farm for the better result not the man power.

Your reasoning is right, Dark Angel, I support you idea. Last year we heard that Soudi Arabia govrnment was interested in growing rice in Lao PDR and it seems that the inking of agreement ceremony was made between the two side citing about jobs for farmers and other people ect... Almost a year has gone by but I don't hear of any more action was initiated.
