Thirty people in Thanintaryi Region are now attending a six-day training course on hand made products from coconuts which is the very first training program opened in Myeik.
The Department of Small and Medium Enterprises Department under the Directorate of Industrial Supervision and Inspection in Myeik District and the Myanmar Coconut Growers and Traders Association have jointly arranged the training course that opened yesterday.
It was open with the aim of developing the country’s economy by ramping up the condition of the small and medium business enterprises in the region, to provide people with job opportunities, to ensure new income generating sources and to improve local people’s living standards.
Training courses previously occurred in the Ayeyarwady and Yangon Regions, and Mon State, said Daw San San Han, secretary of the Myanmar Coconut Growers and Traders Association.
She said that the coconut based products are a useful business for the tourism industry.
“Most visitors like coconut based handcrafts; especially tourists who come from countries where coconuts are not grown. Hoteliers also buy coconut based products to decorate their hotel” she said.
The training would help local people with job opportunities in order to generate more income for their families while the number of visitors to Myeik is increasing, and more training course would be offered in the future, she added. —Myanmar Digital News
