In conducting this structured learning visit, we have received help from many individuals. First, we would like to express our gratitude to all the participants who participated fully in this learning visit as well as to their public and private institutions for nominating and encouraging them.

We would like to thank InWents Capacity Building International, Germany for the financial support and also thank InWents local partners in Lao PDR for the co-designed this structured learning visit.

We grateful to our external resource person, Mr. Konesavanh Vongxay from Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, Vientiane, for his valuable suggestions, support and guidance throughout the visit.

Finally, we would never have completed this learning visit successfully without the cooperation of the team member and other colleagues at Mekong Institute, for which we thank them sincerely.
