During the first two days of training, we learned together and learned more useful knowledge about the cooperative establishment process, the policies to encourage the establishment of cooperatives and the OCOP program of Lao Cai province, promotion policy. In addition, the training program also brings relevant and practical contents and knowledge to local people such as: guidance on product design, packaging, traceability and marketing through the teaching of passionate advisors.

Not only learning more knowledge, but business representatives have the opportunity to understand and bond with each other. Through the talk “Startup coffee” at Tra Viet shop, the experiences in the production and business process of the units were shared and discussed enthusiastically.

It is hoped that the “Seed” sponsorship package that each business receives will bring great encouragement in the process of accelerating their businesses.
