Mr. Assefa Zerihun Tegegn,
Planning Monitoring and Evaluation
Directorate Ministry of Mines
Dr. Indiraa Hridayesh, Hon’ble Minister Public Works Department,Govt. of Uttarakhand, India
workshops of this nature are very useful as it provides us participants with an opportunity to see development that has occurred in these countries over the years, all the result of political will which is greatly lacking in India. Such exposure is important and we are greatly obliged to CBN International for providing our technocrats this opportunity… . We as Indians do possess the intelligence but practically we are unable to apply any of these concepts to our needs. All the good practices that we have seen during this programme may not be adoptable but with necessary adjustments we can definitely make them work…”
Mr. Silvester Okumu Kasuku, Infrastructure Sector Specialist, Office of the Prime Minister, Govt. of Kenya, KENYA
The programme is educational, informative, inspirational and appropriate for leaders in developing countries to share experiences and shape the future together.
Mrs. Teh Poi Hong, Deputy Director, Accountant General Department, MALAYSIA
Overall the programme and management was good, timings were excellent. I am satisfied with the course even though suffered from jet lag. Keep it up and all the best.
Hon. Mr. Mxolisi Dimaza , Majority Party Whip, Eastern Cape Provincial Legislature, SOUTH AFRICA
The programme is a very good, educational and mind opener. I think it should be broadened to include public sector managers. To me it is a very good programme especially for us in Africa.
Mr. Vidya Nand Garg, IAS, Housing Commissioner, UP Housing Board, INDIA
the programme provided an all time high opportunity for capacity building for managers and administrators dealing with urban development. The programme highlighted the important fact that for the success of any public private partnership, there has to be a will to levy user charges by the authorities and a willingness to pay user charges by the users…
Hon. Ms. Noxolo Abraham-Ntantiso, Deputy Chairperson of Committees, Eastern Cape Provincial Legislature, SOUTH AFRICA
The programme is well packaged…congratulations on a powerful, innovative programme. Please, encourage countries to change delegations for broad capacitation. Those that have been empowered should goback & practice what they have learnt.
