We are proposing to create a soc.culture.laos newsgroup on the Internet.

The purpose of the soc.culture.laos is to offer to the Lao community at large,
and to other interested parties, a CENTER for information exchange on research
issues on cultural, economical, and social development inside and outside Laos.
College/University students, research fellows, staff, and instructors, agencies
or organizations doing buinessses in Laos, and possibly indepedent consultants
are, but not limted to, our primary targets.

We hope that you will support our endeavor.  Thank you for your understanding
and prompt consideration in this matter.
