Lognes has the highest proportion of Asians than any town in France, with over 40% of the population being of Asian descent, almost exclusively being or having ancestry from the former colonies of French Indochina (Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam). Ethnic business districts and community associations serving the Asian population are found throughout the city, a contrast from the quick assimilation often characteristic of the Vietnamese, Laotian and Cambodian populations in France.
As of 1998, 26% of the population was Asian.
