ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the risk profile of business in Thailand. Amnesty International has accused Lao army soldiers of human rights abuses against the country's ethnic Hmong, some of whom are waging a guerrilla war against the government. While the government's relations with the Hmong are damaging its international standing, including preventing close economic ties with the U.S., the risk to overall political stability in Laos is small. The rebels are no match for the government and are generally only able to operate in remote areas. The risk to business, including mining companies, is small.
