Activity: Raising Public Awareness for Safe Food Consumption

The contents of this training, especially the best practices from the different offces and countries are truly benefcial and helpful to our work in the Ministry. We learned updated information on food safety, and I realized that we have common issues on food safety but each country has a different approach, different ideas and solutions. So the things I learned in this training, I hope to implement in our country.

The methodology of the training – the lectures, exercises and writing activities – also helped me appreciate the delivery of the content. It is very good for people who are older, who need information to be repeated often, and to help in the transfer of knowledge from theory to practice. Also, when we arrived here, everything has been properly provided – from transportation, accommodation, to the support services. I really appreciate them, and I hope to attend more trainings in MI in the future.

Activity: Raising Public Awareness for Safe Food Consumption

This course is really important because not many people know about food safety. Access  to  information  about  the  subject  is  also  limited  and  the communication of information has not been effective. This course therefore taught me more about the subject and how to communicate it.

It’s  my  frst  time  in  Mekong  Institute,  and  I  think  MI  has  done  very  well. The lecture was very clear, and the course coordinator and the MI staff were all friendly and took proper care of us. The environment was also very good. The place is quiet, safe and clean.

Activity: Raising Public Awareness for Safe Food Consumption

The topic of the training program is timely and relevant because food safety is an urgent issue, a pressing concern especially in Vietnam. It is important to improve consumers’ awareness on food safety because it can also lead to a positive impact on production. One of the most valuable lessons I learned from this training and which I hope to adopt or practice in my work are the fve steps in communicating food safety. The training materials are all very clear and well-prepared. Everything is organized. I also like it here [in Khon Kaen University]. The environment is quiet, peaceful, no pollution; and we have a spacious room at MI.

I am an old student that took part in an MI training workshop fifteen years ago and MI is a very good memory for me. I am so lucky to have been involved in a nine week training course and I feel this unforgettable memory during this period of workshops.  I also remember there were several modules for learning, which, until now, these modules and learning cycles helped me a lot and influenced me in my life and my study.  During that period of time, I felt a very exciting and colorful life, not only learning activities but also visiting programs, so it is a very good learning atmosphere.

Activity: Protection and Promotion of the Rights of Migrant Workers, Women and Children

The topic and content in which we trained is very useful and important especially on the economy, population, labor market and migration into the GMS, and the rights to access health and education.  The Mekong Institute is a good facility with a warm and friendly welcome to all participants.  After this training I will use my experience to improve my work because it is very important to Lao PDR.  I would like to thank you for giving us good lessons and new experience.  On behalf of myself and all Lao participants, I hope that you receive continued support in the future.
