While the situation in Laos still needs to be fine tuned to truly encourage Lao expats to return to Laos and essentially reintegrate them, this event shows a marked change in attitude by the Lao government towards the hundreds of thousands of Lao expats living around the world.

Many Lao expats living abroad continue to have close ties to family and relatives in Laos where many visit Laos regularly and send money to relatives and friends there.

Here's the news clip from LaoNewsTV of Ms. Pany Yathotou, President of the National Assembly, meeting with the group of Lao expats.
