Laos Fears China’s Footprint

From AP:

A high-rise Chinatown that is to go up by ’ laid-back capital has ignited fears that this nation’s giant northern neighbor is moving to engulf this nation.

So alarmed are Laotians that the communist government, which rarely explains its actions to the population, is being forced to do just that, with what passes for an unprecedented public relations campaign.

The “Chinese City” is a hot topic of talk and wild rumor, much of it laced with anxiety as well as anger that the regime sealed such a momentous deal in virtual secrecy.
