Regional Program to Train Trainers in Tourism in the Greater Mekong Subregion
The objective of the RETA is to foster the development of tourism in the subregion by upgrading the teaching skills of trainers in the basic disciplines of the tourism industry in the subregion, which in turn will improve in-country training capabilities, will increase in the number of trainers and will encourage a common approach to tourism training within the subregion. This can be expected to lead to an improved tourism product and increase opportunities for employment in the tourism industry. The RETA will support a training program in Thailand and Singapore for selected trainers from Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Thailand, Viet Nam, and Yunnan Province in the PRC. The program will focus on the organization, facilities, curricula, and techniques used in training for the management and provision of tourism services and will be designed to equip participants with the knowledge and skills to enable them to identify the needs for training tourism trainers in the countries of origin to design training courses to address these needs, to ultilize available tourism trainers and spread the benefits of the RETA more widely.
