Lanith is committed to creating awareness, communicating its activities and progress, and presenting an arena to raise and discuss important cross-cutting industry issues among all stakeholders: travel professionals, trade staff and management, government agencies, development organisations, educators, students, civil society, and foreign visitors. To accomplish this, Lanith employs several multimedia tools, and organises periodic Lanith Symposia, which add another effective platform for engagement.
Innovation is at the core of Lanith. Rather than employ a standard model for destination human resource development, Lanith customises its approach to fit Laos’ burgeoning staff requirements through sustainable strategies. Lanith aggressively pursues public-private sector partnerships and harmonisation with other donor agencies in pursuit of its vision and mission.
Lanith’s award-winning Passport to Success industry training programme offers more than 40 multi-day modules aimed at Laos’ current tourism and hospitality workforce. Internationally educated Lao trainers deliver instruction in the Lao language. The programme plots trainee’s progress in a “Passport to Success” booklet and presents a path for professional development by meeting ASEAN standards for competency-based training courses.
