Dean, Faculty of Chemical and Food Engineering
Institute of Technology, Cambodia

Activity : Raising Public Awareness on Safe Food Consumption

This training is very useful because it brings all the members from different countries to see how we can work effectively to raise public awareness on food safety. It’s very useful because the academic world is somehow quite different. We are more focused on the scientific finding and investigation, and we are not good at communication so this is a good opportunity for us to learn a new skill and close the gap between the scientists, the community and the policymakers.

Associate Professor, Faculty of Agriculture and Applied Biology, Can Tho University, Vietnam

Activity : Mainstreaming Food Safety Risks

I find the teaching method of the training to be very good. We have four groups from different countries and in each group, participants come from different disciplines. It’s a good way for people to share different ideas, experiences and points of views. The topic on HACCP is also very interesting because there are only few people who know about risk analysis for food safety. I will update my lectures and course modules with the concepts I learned from this training, and I can also use them to help my students do their thesis and investigate on the food safety situation in our country.

Operation Manager, Logistics Department, Puzzle Solution, Cambodia

Activity : Green Freight and Logistics Management in Mekong Countries 

This training introduced us to new knowledge. I particularly liked the discussions on product activity and fuel utilization. As part of the private sector, our first priority is always to save cost, and from this training we learned that saving cost is related to green trade. Previously we did not know much about green trade; now we understand that it’s also about helping us save on cost.

Activity : Regional Media Training Program on Food Safety Reporting in CLMV

This training helped me to understand more about food safety, from the basics to the more technical details. The field trip also gave us an opportunity to learn more about the supply chain. The information we gathered from the experts in this training would be very useful for us as we write our articles. If there is another training course that is longer and with more activities and that can help me in my job as a journalist, I hope to join.

Trade Officer, Ministry of Commerce, Thailand

Activity : Modular Training on Management of Special Economic Zones Practices in Lancang-Mekong Countries 

As part of my work, I prepare the information for my boss to facilitate better negotiation with other countries. With this training, I now have a better understanding of special economic zones (SEZs) so I can prepare more precise information. The case studies were a very good exercise to learn more about SEZs especially how decisions are made as to which country they will build their plants.
