Since Technology and Innovation are linked together in this day and age, this program is critical in helping new entrepreneurs conduct business appropriately in order to create additional career opportunities and strengthen the competitiveness of the country in the present and in the future. In the future, Lan Xang-Mekong Group will be a business operations model that further drives business development in the country, enabling everyone to exchange and learn without limitations.” – said the NSTDA deputy director.
