COVID-19 Response and Recovery:
GREAT partner CRED recently organised leadership development training courses, including online sessions for 80 leaders of cooperatives, collective groups and businesses working in agricultural and tourism sectors in Lao Cai and Son La, with technical support from IChange Center.
To respond to COVID-19, GREAT partners AOP and DCI Moc Chau have been working with tour operators and Vat Village communities in Moc Chau to customise tour products targeting the domestic market to create income for communities given the international travel lock-down.
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a negative impact on the local tourism industry, especially with limited international visitors. In response, GREAT tourism partners AOP and DCI Sa Pa are adopting market-boosting solutions.
Recently, Lao Cai Provincial People’s Committee chaired a conference on Policy impact assessments and digital transformation solutions in tourism to respond to COVID-19 with the support of GREAT.
