The meeting, hosted by LANIC and held in Vientiane, Laos, covered various topics, including a review of LANIC's technical system readiness, a draft of an Internet Management Policy for the Laotian country code Top Level Domain (ccTLD) ".LA", and a survey of the site and equipment requisite for hosting the Laotian domain name system by LANIC.

"We are extremely honored to be part of the discussions to develop and grow Internet usage in Laos," stated Dot VN Chief Executive Officer Thomas Johnson.

Our successful experience in Vietnam is readily transferable to the current situation in Laos.
