Our Main Market:

As you might already know, the market here in Laos is very small for big foreign companies for introducing their products because most doctors are not competent enough to follow the today high technology.
However, by having received quite a lot of supports from foreign countries, our local doctors have able to reach the requirement of international standard on their professional works. So owning to this, we have been able to notify some of our main foreign and local customers as below.
