AHEAD of their massive room expansion, emerging ASEAN countries are seeking assistance from their counterparts that have advanced human resource (HR) training programmes.
Indonesia Hotels and Restaurant Association (IHRA) chairman Yanti Sukamdani said: “Laos, Myanmar and Cambodia have requested for the training, and we will start with rank-and-file vocational training for hotel and restaurant staff. Each course will take between six months and a year.”
Lao Hotel and Restaurant Association president Oudet Souvannavong said: “There are between 10 and 20 hotels under development in various cities in Laos that will open within the next two years with approximately 2,000 rooms. We need the vocational training and we are going to work with IHRA to do this.”
