The Lao People’s Democratic Republic, a landlocked nation, lies in the center of the Southeast Asian Peninsula and borders on five countries: Burma to the northwest, China to the north, Vietnam to the east, Cambodia to the south, and Thailand down the length of its western frontier.
The total land area covers 91,425 square miles, about the size of Oregon. Dense jungle and rugged mountains in the north and east cover 6% of the country’s surface. Mountainous topography is characteristic of all of Laos outside the Mekong River Basin. Phu Bia, in Xieng Khouang Province, the highest point in the country, rises 9,249 feet above sea level.
Laos is an ancient country, inhabited since Paleolithic times by an ever-shifting mix of Southeast Asian people and tribes. The Lao trace their beginnings to the waning days of the Khmer Empire in the mid-14th century, when Prince Fa Ngum, educated at the court of Angkor, founded the Kingdom of a Million Elephants (in Lao, “Lane Xang”). His successors in the 16th century ruled over a powerful realm which, under King Setthathirat, included within its boundaries northern Thailand, encompassing Chiang Mai, and all of northeastern Thailand's Isaan Plateau.
Dissolved at the beginning of the 18th century the kingdom split into three principalities: Luang Prabang in the north, Vientiane in the central region, and Champassak in the far south. Prey to marauding Burmese, Thai, and Vietnamese armies, and to Chinese bandits, Laos fell on hard times. Whether the establishment of a French protectorate in 1893 over the east bank of the Mekong helped is an unanswerable question. It was, perhaps, inevitable that Southeast Asian or European imperialism would have absorbed the small and quarrelsome Lao states of the time.
France ruled the country until 1954, although the King of Luang Prabang, under pressure from the Japanese occupation forces, proclaimed its independence in 1945. From that later date until 1975 Laos shared in the confused and bloody conflict for power which raged throughout Indochina. On December 2, 1975, the monarchy was abolished and a People’s Democratic Republic was proclaimed under the Lao Communist Party.
New roads built by international donors and financial institutions are going to link the Thai, Chinese, and Vietnamese economies through Laos in the coming decade. This will transform Laos’ economy, but because the country’s industrial comparative advantage is difficult to establish, the new infrastructure will probably benefit the service sector first and foremost, to support both commercial transportation and tourism.
Laos is landlocked, mountainous, and sparsely populated, which hinders the development of its transportation system. The country has no railroads, and public roads are mostly unpaved and poorly maintained. A major project is now under way to upgrade and improve the road network in Vientiane.

Exporting from Asia can be tricky as auto exporters and car exporters are dime a dozen. The stereotype of used car salesman is universal and based on some truth. With the advent of Internet the crooks have come out of the woodworks to separate the innocent from their money, Thailand is no exception. Caveat emptor - buyer beware - maxim has been heeded by businessmen since the time of the Ancients but it is most relevant when all it takes is a DSL modem, a nerdy kit with some HTML skills to put together a website, some Images (Pics) taken at your competitor's lots and you are in business. We have seen a parade of newbie auto exporters come in, offer great deals for a year or so perpetrating an elaborate Ponzi scheme and then disappear with millions of dollars of their customers very hard earned money. Will you trust a company that has been in business for 1 year or one that has been in business for 100 years and is well respected not only all over Asia but also beyond Asian boundaries. If someone offers you a deal that sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Not all new entrants are crooks but there are some who in their quest for the fast buck wants to cut corners at the expense of the customer. When you work with Soni you have the peace of mind to know that we have been voted Thailand's most trusted dealership and Thailand's most trusted auto exporter five years in a row and it is for this reason that we have over 80% of the auto exporting market share in Thailand.
