DIT students invited to meet President Michael D Higgins

Posted: 11 September, 2014

Two DIT students from Laos were recently invited to meet with President Michael D Higgins.  The two students, Khanethavong Phoummsak and Viphaphorn Vongladsamee (pictured left-right), are currently studying on the Higher Certificate in Hospitality Management in DIT.  The students are the first two Lao nationals ever to study in Ireland. 


DIT is collaborating with Irish Aid to train teachers in hospitality management and tourism for the Lao National Institute of Tourism & Hospitality (LANITH). The visit to President Higgins was to mark the occasion and to brief him on how the Irish embassy in Hanoi, Irish Aid and DIT are collaborating with the Irish diaspora to deliver on Ireland’s development aid objectives.  Also pictured is  Maeve O’Brien (far right), Technical Advisor, from the Lao National Institute of Tourism and Hospitality (Lanith).
