Thanks Ms Nga from Care for the link re: The Responsible Business Forum on Food and Agriculture in Hanoi on 23/06/2015 and 24/06/2015




As Mike from The Asia Foundation pointed out there is another CSR related event The Disaster Preparedness Forum also happening in Hanoi on 2/07/2015  




The folks over CSR Asia are looking to invite some smaller, more local/national companies to the event that may have experience of partnering with NGOs in either disaster preparedness and/or response. Ly from Plan said it best “the more local companies get exposed to this topic, the better engagement between NGO and private sector could be fostered” and the forum seems like a great opportunity for that.  If you have companies in mind please contact Mark Leighton via email mark at helikonia.com.my


And lastly enjoy the holiday!
