HAI PHONG (VNS) – The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and its partner, Peace Winds America, have launched the Sister Cities Disaster Preparedness Program.

Numerous small and medium-sized businesses will participate in the three-year initiative that promotes business resilience and public-private cooperation in partnership with the city of Hai Phong.

Starting this month, the initiative has started training business leaders to protect their organizations from disaster risks by using continuity plans.

The businesses will serve as pilots for other Hai Phong businesses in preparing for continuity. Vietnamese trainers representing business associations, universities, and the Government will join the pilot sessions for a "Train the Trainer" program. — VNS
