The training was led by MI and the Rice Department of the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives (MOAC) in Thailand. It was composed of five (5) modules which provided participants with knowledge on international trade data standards and their integration with the data field of a traceability system. Experts from Thammasat University, National Telecom Public Company Limited, and GS1 Hong Kong were invited to share their knowledge and expertise on digital traceability.
To enhance the learning experience, the participants visited The Sukha House (Thailand) Co., Ltd and the Phrao Agriculture Cooperative Ltd which are using Trace Thai, one of Thailand’s traceability systems for agricultural products. At the end of the training, each group identified essential traceability data requirements for the rice trade in their country which will be used to draft the white paper on the development of traceability data standards for the Lancang-Mekong Region.
Supported by the Lancang-Mekong Cooperation Special Fund, this training program is the last of a series of training programs organized under the project.
