Flag of Laos
Following the recent incorporation from Algeria to the Madrid System (and the changes it provoked), another country has decided to hop on to the system. Lao People's Democratic Republic (Laos) has joined Madrid. Although some time will be needed for this new member to be integrated with the Madrid system, it is expected that as of the 7th of March 2016 it shall be fully incorporated.
About the Madrid System
