Lao-Chinese Diplomatic Relations by Spectrum Asia

In 2016, Laos and China celebrated 55 years of diplomatic relations.  As part of the commemoration, China's CCTV show called Spectrum Asia profiled Laos.  It's a series that profiles all of Asia and in particular China's neighbours.  There were 4 recent episodes entitled Time as Witness that focused on Laos specifically.

The early part of this diplomatic relationship is a part of Lao-Chinese history that likely many people may not know about.  It's quite interesting.  In particular about the almost 1000 Lao students and teachers who were sent to Nanning, China to study there in the 1960s.
