YANGON (Xinhua): Myanmar will provide more free bakery and pastry training courses under a special programme of the Lancang-Mekong Cooperation (LMC), according to the country's Ministry of Hotels and Tourism.

The 5th and 6th batches of bakery and pastry training courses will be held in December 2023 and January 2024 respectively.

The subjects to be taught in the course are 48 international snack recipes, Director of the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism U Naung Naung Lin Aung told Xinhua on Sunday (Oct 22).

Some 20 participants will be selected for the four-week courses, said the official, who also explained the criteria and procedure for selecting the trainees.
