Jun 05: The 2–week 60th capacity building programme (CBP) for the civil servants of Bangladesh organised by the National Centre for Good Governance (NCGG) in partnership with the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) concluded on 2nd June 2023. Following completing the first phase of CBP for 1,500 civil servants, NCGG signed an MoU with the Government of Bangladesh to enhance the capacity of more than 1,800 civil servants by 2025. Post–Covid 19 pandemic, NCGG has already provided training to 517 officers in Bangladesh within the past two years.
The 21st century is billed as the ‘Asian century’. It offers an opportunity to South Asian countries to transform themselves into developed countries and enhance the quality of life of their citizens. To achieve this goal, it is essential to foster mutual learning and concentrate on citizen-centric public policies and good governance by adopting e-governance.
Under the leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, the Indian government is actively engaged in these endeavours. It is also helping other developing nations in their endeavour to strengthen the capabilities of their civil servants and technocrats. In pursuit of this mission, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) has identified the National Centre for Good Governance (NCGG) as an ‘institution in focus’. As a result, the NCGG is expanding and scaling up its activities significantly.
The valedictory session of the 60th CBP for civil servants of Bangladesh was chaired by Shri Bharat Lal, Director General, National Centre for Good Governance. In his address, he highlighted how these capacity-building programmes are meticulously curated with the primary objective of facilitating the exchange of knowledge and innovative practices that have been successfully implemented in India to enhance governance and public service delivery. Through the exchange of best practices, India aims to contribute to the development and strengthening of governance systems globally. The DG urged the participating officers to identify 4–5 key learnings from the CBP that they can adapt and replicate, with necessary modifications based on their specific needs.Disclaimer: We donot claim that the images used as part of the news published are always owned by us.
