After the selection, KITECH experts came to work directly and had detailed technical instructions with the company.

1.  VITAS directly selected the suitable participants.

2.  VITAS followed up and supported both experts and enterprises in the technology transfer program in the factories.

3.  Change Request:

-    VITAS highly appreciated KIAT’s longterm support for the past 6 years. Many staffs of VITAS and member companies participated in this training course and now hold many key positions in VITAS and their enterprises. 

-    The tranining programs in Korea: could be divided into 2 parts that 1 week in Korea and 1 week in Vietnam, so the enterprises could get more knowledge in Korea and apply in the practical conditions in Vietnam. Two week traning course was too long so that it was difficult to invite the leaders of enterprises to participate.

-   VITAS should follow up and support enterprises closely to get the highest result. This was the experience drawn from VITAS through this support.
