Mekong Institute opens applications to 2020 safe food courses

December 3, 2019

Mekong Institute will be organizing a series of safe food courses in 2020 as part of the New Zealand Aid Programme-funded Project on Promoting Food Safety for Everyone (PROSAFE).

These regional training programs comprise a major component of the five-year food safety project being implemented in Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, and Vietnam (CLMV). The Project primarily seeks to engage key actors from both the public and private sectors to put in place an integrated mechanism leading toward significant changes in food safety perception and practices in the region, especially in fresh fruit and vegetable value chains.

In this line, MI is now accepting applications for interested CLMV nationals to participate in the following courses to be delivered in 2020. These courses will be organized at the MI Residential Training Center in Khon Kaen, Thailand. MI will cover the costs of participation for selected candidates.

Courses will be delivered in English and will be facilitated by New Zealand and regional experts. Selected participants are expected to develop and implement action plans to demonstrate the knowledge and skills they gained from their respective courses. These action plans must be relevant to their organization’s priorities or the participant’s current work.
