A well-known convenience store chain 7-Eleven launched the Dongdok branch, the third of its kind in the Lao PDR, at Dongdok Campus Market, Vientiane.
CP All Lao of CP All group opened the first 7-Eleven in Laos in September this year. The opening shows the country’s economic momentum of opening to new opportunities, said CP All Public Managing Director International Mr. Chairoj Tiwatmuncharoen.
The opening ceremony was attended by Deputy Minister of Education and Sports Kingmano Phommahasay, Vice Dean of the National University of Laos Phosy Thipdavanh, and relevant officials of both sides.
The newly opened 7-Eleven branch will be managed by a local businesswoman. Having business operated by local people is CP All’s policy as it wants 7-Eleven in Laos to be a Lao store, creating values for Lao society and real pride in Lao people.
Ms. Lalinthip Meuangvong, a 26-year-old businesswoman, said that she is interested in this business because 7-Eleven is a modern and popular convenience store chain. “Lao people, especially those who have traveled to Thailand, are accustomed to using the service of 7-Eleven.”
The company has a professional team ready to give us advice on all matters. With a modern store management system, I believe that we can succeed together, creating benefits and providing more choices to accessing quality products and services, promoting the economy, creating jobs, and incomes, as well as creating a good image for the country.
“Ms. Lalinthip will inspire other Lao entrepreneurs to join our efforts, cherishing CP All’s three values that aim to benefit the host country, people and the corporation,” said Mr. Chairoj Tiwatmuncharoen.
