Government urges land reforms

Vientiane Times reported about land reforms:
"During a
riveting keynote speech given at a international land and forestry
conference in Vientiane today, Dr. Souvanhpheng Bouphanouvong,
President of the National Assembly of Lao's Committee on Economic
Planning and Finance, announced the government's intention to undergo
a nationwide formal process of large scale land reform, and prioritize
the need for increased local land management, given that access to
land for rural households is fundamental to sustained poverty
Later on it is said that the gov is concerned about land disputes. I just wonder how this new policy will fit to the practise to give land to people working in the government. And if Vietnam and China will still get concessions and leases.
