United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) has started training Namibian Cabinet ministers, their deputies, permanent secretaries and regional governors.
UNECA was established by the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations (UN) in 1958 as one of its five regional commissions.
It was established to promote economic and social development of its 54 member states foster intra-regional integration, and promote international cooperation for Africa’s development.
The two-day training that opened in the capital Windhoek Thursday deals with key governance and developmental issues they are likely to encounter during the five-year term of their office.
In a statement sent out to the media Wednesday, the international relations permanent secretary, Ambassador Selma Ashipala-Musavyi, said the workshop will be held under the theme “Promoting Innovative Approaches and Synergies for Sustainable Economic Growth in Namibia”.
Ashipala-Musavyi also said the training will look at how to facilitate innovation and synergies for sustainable growth and economic transformation.
She further said the training is expected to contexturise Namibia’s economic transformation within the broader transformation agenda of the African continent. Enditem
