PR practitioners must not slander the state or contradict the Lao culture or repercussions such as fines or media restrictions will occur.
All publications must be approved by the Government.
Radio is the most widespread means of communication in Laos and allows private parties to buy air time which is useful for public relations.
Internet is the least censored media outlet in Laos, however, does not have a large audience.
Newspapers and television are restricted to certain demographics and areas and would therefore not be as useful for public relation practices.
