According to a press release, participants were from Lao Polytechnic College, the Department of Natural Resources and Environment of Vientiane, Nampapa Nakhoneluang Enterprise, and the Vientiane Guoding Kaitai Mining Investment Sole Company.
The three-month course was carried out in a combination of online and offline modes.
With the theme of “Improving the Ability of Intermediate and Senior Technical Skills and Personnel in the Water Environment Monitoring and Treatment under the Lancang-Mekong Project”, the training aims to create a platform for water resources cooperation, promote the
Lancang-Mekong Cooperation Programme, and strengthen the dialogue on water resources policies between China and Laos.
On the one hand, through this exchange and study, the Lao participants gained a deeper understanding of the development level of China’s vocational education, advanced technology and traditional culture in water environment treatment. On the other hand, they learned from China’s rich experience in water environment monitoring.
This training also strengthens the collaboration between schools and businesses, which will help to enhance the professional skills and management capabilities of technical personnel in Lao schools and businesses, and provide better intellectual, technical and comprehensive service support for the monitoring and treatment of the national water environment.
During the three-month training, in addition to the online course focusing on water environment monitoring and treatment technology, a seven-day combination of “online plus offline” practical training was also arranged for the participants. This included water quality sampling and water quality monitoring practical operations, field visits to Lao water plants and sewage treatment plants, a water ecology forum, and a cultural salon.
The leaders and trainees of the participating units expressed their appreciation for this training, and the 45 participants successfully received their certificates of completion for the programme.
