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.

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.

The training is a timely training. Our country just approved the revised national transport policy, and the policy itself espouses new thematic areas which are environment-sensitive.
