Laos - Using an Agent to Sell US Products and ServicesLaos - Using an Agent
Employing a Lao agent or distributor, or finding a Lao business partner, are frequently used methods for developing contacts with Lao businesses, customers and government officials. Numerous import-export companies are based in Vientiane and in the cities located at or near border crossings in the provinces of Luang Namtha, Bokeo, Bolikhamxay, Khammouane, Savannakhet, and Champasack.
Most import-export companies are ill-equipped to handle large-scale distribution. U.S. firms looking for a distributor or an agent in a particular province should contact and the Trade and Investment Department of the respective province for assistance in identifying viable business partners.
