Activity: Business Research and Database Development in the Southern Economic Corridor (SEC)

The training was really nice. It is good to learn new knowledge and meet a lot of new friends from different countries. I can say that this training met my expectation. In this training, what I like most is the lecture on e-commerce. E-commerce has become more and more important in modern day. As my country is a developing country, I think that there is still room for improvement for e-commerce in my country. The knowledge I gained is very useful for me. Moreover, from this training, I learned a lot from Alibaba and learned how to contact them as well. This will be helpful in the future. Last but not least, the training allowed me to have a lot of interactions with friends from different countries. I really like it. I hope we can stay friends and even become business partners someday.

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.

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. I can use the systematic ways of planning a project to adapt including any kinds of project, not only for agricultural ones, but also sustainable development planning methods.

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.
