Officials Trained On Resolution of Safety Issues

(KPL) The Singapore Ministry of Foreign Affairs funded a 5-day training course on Resolution of Safety Issues for 26 Lao government officials from 8 to 12 April 2019.

The course, held at the Laos-Singapore Cooperation Centre, Vientiane, was conducted by the Singapore Aviation Academy.

The course was designed to provide participants with the knowledge and best practices in the resolution of safety issues arising from audit findings and violation of safety regulations. Participants also learnt how to resolve various types of safety issues relating to safety oversight.

The course was conducted pursuant to the Initiative for ASEAN Integration (IAI).

Under the IAI, Singapore conducts 20 to 30 courses a year at the Lao-Singapore training Centre, focusing on areas of public governance, finance, urban management, hospitality and tourism, civil aviation, as well as IT skills and the English language.

About 600 Lao officials are trained each year and over 13,000 Lao government officials have benefited from the ministry’s various training programmes under the Singapore Cooperation Programme since 1993.
