courses and workshops at the country level are also organized in selected countries in the Southeast Asian region that have
established technical cooperation programs with ICEIT. During 1998-present, in-country training has been organized in Bhutan, Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos,
Malaysia, Myanmar, and Vietnam. Justification of local training in certain countries is predicated on the need to train a critical number of personnel to be potential trainers
for subsequent training at the national level, to ensure that training is appropriate to existing facilities and implementation
mechanisms in each participating country, so that displacement of personnel as well as costs for provision of training are minimized.
