I have enjoyed a special week of training in Khon Kaen, Thailand. It is a great opportunity for me to meet with new friends, to learn new knowledge and to share my experiences from Vietnam.

Lecturer, Vietnam University of Agriculture, Vietnam

Activity: Poverty Alleviation and Sustainable Rural Development, August 1-12, 2016

As a participant from a developing country, I found that this training course provided me necessary and useful knowledge, as well as hospitality and friendship. The most useful aspect to my work is the knowledge on poverty and how it is different in each country and each period. Therefore, in order to alleviate poverty sustainably, there should be a deep understanding. To reach that objective, I have to apply a lot of knowledge and skills from this course such as 4 levels of thinking and PRA tools. The things I like the most were the methods of training; they were diverse and flexible. I also liked the field trip to Sam Sung district to apply PRA in the project. Lastly, I liked the support from facilitators of the training course.

Sustainable Rural Development: June 13-17, 2016

In my opinion, this training has met my expectation very well. It was a good opportunity for knowledge sharing and learning by doing. This included learning new systematic ways in the concept of sustainable development in the GMS. The part of the training that I found very useful to my job are the elements, factors, advantages, and disadvantages we need to consider in writing a business plan. I also greatly appreciate learning the process of creating development plans that would be sustainable in the future. The greatest beneft I gained from this training was the opportunity to share knowledge and ideas between Thai and Lao which generated various ideas

The training met my expectation and I would like to have further discussion on related topics and project analysis that we did together in class.

The greatest benefit from this training, to me, is the knowledge of how to do a good planning that will be sustainable. Also, I gained experiences from exchanging and sharing knowledge among the participants.

Secretary General, Myanmar Customs Brokers Association, Myanmar

Certified Logistics Master Program: May 23-June 3, 2016

The course was very useful for me because I have learned a lot about the GMS-CBTV (cross-border transport agreement). My company provides the custom service and cross border arrangement which I think it was good opportunity for me to attend. The best part for me was the way of management since there was the expert from Bangkok who explained us a lot about his experiences in cargo. It was so interesting and he made me more understand on this topic.

Assistant Manager, International Logistics Service Department – SCG Logistics Management, Thailand

Certified Logistics Master Program: May 23-June 3, 2016
This training went way beyond my expectation. For me, the knowledge of the agreement of CBTA is very important because it is my job. I handle the cross-border issues and also it was good to know about the situations and status of other countries because in the class we learnt about the experience from the other countries. Especially in Laos, we did not have much of the information about the issue. After I gained experiences from other participants, I understood more about their culture and information about the cross border.

I actually expected to gain only the knowledge about CBTA and some about the cross-border. However, after the training, I gained more than that. I learnt more about warehouses, the agreements between the countries, the service providers of transportation in Asian and international market, and also the logistics companies.
