Dhan Kumar Shyangden is the trainer. “This course basically helps the youths to understand the basics of business and the areas where they can really work,” he said.

The trainers showcased their products at the Sunday market in Damphu. The 10-day regional training is the second such training targeting out of school youth. It is being jointly organised by the labour and human resources ministry in collaboration with Thimphu Tech Park.
