Event Description

1. Background

Mekong Institute (MI) conducted the Regional Training on Trade Events Promotion on June 12 – 16, 2017 at its Residential Training Center, Khon Kaen, Thailand. The training program was the integrated part of the two-year project on “Enhancing Competitiveness of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) in the Southern Economic Corridor (SEC) of ASEAN - Mekong Subregion (AMS) from 2016 to 2018, funded by Japan-ASEAN Integration Fund (JAIF).

As part of the training program, the participants jointly developed and implemented the Action Plans (APs) on organizing trade events at border provinces in the SEC as below. APs were implemented with the support and assistance by the MI TIF Department.

(i) Cambodia – Vietnam Business Matching 2017 (October 5, 2017) (Cambodia’s Preah Sihanouk Province)
