HAI PHONG, May 15, 2015 - The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and its partner, Peace Winds America, have launched the Sister Cities Disaster Preparedness Program.  Numerous small and medium sized businesses will participate in the three-year initiative that promotes business resilience and public-private cooperation in partnership with the city of Hai Phong.

In May 2015, the initiative begins a business continuity training program for ten pre-selected pilot businesses.  Upon completing this program, the business leaders will be better able to protect their organizations from disaster risks by using actionable business continuity plans. These pilot businesses will serve as models for other Hai Phong businesses in preparing for continuity during future disasters.  Vietnamese trainers representing business associations, universities, and the government will join the pilot sessions for  a “Train the Trainer” program.

Yesterday Americans celebrated Thanksgiving by giving thanks. I feel as though the holiday has extended a day, given how much I appreciate the wonderful news this morning that the National Assembly has ratified the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. I am also thankful to the Vietnam Federation of Disabilities for hosting this year’s Asia Pacific Disability Forum to help ensure that those living with disability in this region are heard and supported.
