More measures needed to check farm imports

The business sector and agricultural promoters have urged Lao authorities to increase measures to check the import of farm products through border crossings. Scattered imports through this channel are considered an obstacle to attracting investment and growth of the sector in the country. Vice President of the Lao National Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Mr Daovon Phachanthavong, said on Wednesday “The public sector must pay attention to managing imports.”
