HCM CITY — The ASEAN project development training course for Việt Nam, which aims to improve the quality of project proposals, kicked off yesterday in HCM City.
The two-day course, organised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and ASEAN Secretariat, attracted 90 participants who are officers of government ministries, departments, agencies and institutions from central and southern provinces and cities.
Dương Hải Hưng, deputy head of the ASEAN Department under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said the course would help officials fully understand procedures and techniques to write project proposals.
The course addresses the general lack of awareness at the national level about ASEAN cooperation projects, available resources, and the use of available funds.
The training also demonstrates how to fill out a project proposal template and strengthen linkages among institutions and participants to pursue an ASEAN Cooperation project proposal.
Dameria Rimta Silangit, head of ASEAN Secretariat’s Programme Cooperation and Project Management Division, said: “At the end of the training, the participants will have deeper knowledge and understanding of ASEAN’s on-going initiatives and platforms, ASEAN development cooperation and its project cycles, result-oriented project formulations, and implementation, monitoring and reporting.”
About 70 funds and cooperation projects exist within ASEAN, strengthening connectivity, narrowing the development gap and responding to common challenges.
The training course was successfully organised in Hà Nội in October last year. — VNS
