Lao New Year
Secretary of State
On behalf of President Obama I am delighted to extend my greetings to the people of Laos on the occasion of the Lao New Year.
The American people join you in the spirit of hope, celebration, joy, and renewal. May the New Year bring prosperity to Lao people all around the world.
The New Year is a time of great opportunity and expectation and I hope this year will provide even greater opportunities to work together and enrich the important friendship between Laos and the United States.
