Summary

This report highlights the impact of COVID-19 on returning Lao migrants. The wave of returning migrants is likely to alter the local economic landscape, as more than 50 per cent of surveyed returning migrants indicated they have no plans to leave Lao People’s Democratic Republic for work again or are not sure of their plans. About 36 per cent were willing to upskill for better opportunities.
