On 7 April, PanAust’s Lao-registered company, Phu Bia Mining welcomed more than 100 participants from the Australian-Lao business community to the Austcham Lao People Democratic Republic’s April Sundowner event held at the Lao-German Technical College in Vientiane.

At the conclusion of the three-year program, the apprentices will receive an Australian Certificate III in their trade discipline and a High Diploma from the Lao Ministry of Education and Sport.

During the event, the Company’s apprentices shared about their experiences in their chosen area of study — in automotive electrical, heavy vehicle plant mechanical, heavy mechanical, metal fabrication and welding, fitting and machining and electrical — and enthusiastically demonstrated their skillsets and knowledge.  

The night concluded with a networking reception.
