The CAAAM – something on alumni of those who used to go on a course sponsored by the China government sent me these Questions to survey on us – our perception after the course. I just completed mine. 😉
1) What was the gist of the program/workshop/seminar?
The workshop is about the development of pan beibu gulf and the impact of the development towards asean member countries in particular of Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia as well as Brunei.
2) What was your favourite part of the program/workshop/seminar?
Study visit to Shanghai and Tianjin Port
Visit to the Great Wall of China
It enabled me to experience the development by myself, as Port of Tianjin is one of the top 10 port in the world while Shanghai is one of the most developed city in the world. Most of all, the experience of the Shanghai Maglev train was one of the highlight of the workshop. While visit to the Great Wall was also an eye-opening.
4) Tell us 3 things you learned from the program/workshop/seminar:
i) There are a lot of potential of development especially in the logistics sector
ii) The potential is getting better with partnership and cooperation
iii) The importance of knowing our own country’s power and strength as well as weaknesses is crucial
5) How has the program/workshop/seminar benefited you in your working life?
This workshop taught me that almost all of the things are doable.
6) Would you recommend this Program/Seminar/Workshop to others? Why?
While at the first place I didn’t really understand the connection of Malaysia to Pan Beibu but later I understand that the impact of the regional development will actually influence the neighbouring countries and it will enhance positive competition and generate market share. It is good to open our eyes and to work smarter to ensure continuous development, to know what we can contribute (be it in small or large) to the development of our country.
7) What were the three things you acquired throughout the whole experience?
i) The importance of understanding our country’s potential
ii) The importance of taking chances
iii) To be grateful for what we have but at the same time, will always improve ourselves. (or our country).
