Throughout the past period, RATCH-Lao Services Co., Ltd. has been committed to creating growth and profits in tandem with life quality development of the Lao people.
We must focus on building strength in the company to make the company grow and be stable, by focusing on cultivating the right values, moral virtues, honesty, transparency and responsibility to all stakeholders, all target groups including the state and private sector, co-investors, employees and people in Laos with equality and fairness.
