Result-based management (RBM) of small- and medium-sized enterprises (SME) is the focus of a training course that kicked off on May 12 in the Mekong Delta province of Tra Vinh province.

The three-day training course, part of activities of the Canada-funded SME development project, aims to enhance the capability of project management staff in applying RBM tools.

Dr Ngo Tho Hung from the Asian Institute of Technology in Vietnam highlighted RBM application in international projects and organisations.

The project was launched earlier this year with a total investment of 11.7 million USD, 11 million USD of which was sourced from the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development.

It will be carried out over six years with three major components: developing major local products, improving local infrastructure facilities and enhancing the capacity of public management staff.

It targets 200 local enterprises and more than 194,000 residents in 20 remote communes across the province.-VNA
