In an effort to increase the understanding of local government leaders and improve service delivery, at least 800 Tanzanian government officials have received various training through the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA).
According to a statement from KOICA, the 800 government officials received the trainings between 1991 and August, this year.
During the training, local administration management topic was given first priority so as to meet the Tanzania government’s demand of delivering proper services to its people through local authorities.
This year alone, about 15 officials from local government authorities participated in the course including a Human Resources Officer from Kinondoni Municipal Council.
Following the trainings they have been offering, KOICA and KOICA Alumni Association of Tanzania (KAAT) jointly held the 2013 KAAT Feedback Seminar on Local Administration Management in Dar es Salaam over the weekend.
The official development assistant in collaboration with Korean government through KOICA, has provided training to government officials of its partner countries.
The themes for the seminar were the ‘Human Resources Development for Improvement of Services delivery in the Local Administration System and Decentralisation by Devolution in Tanzania.’
Participants discussed a number of issues but they wanted to come up with the best knowledge and experience gained from Korea so as to raise the standards of service delivery.
The feedback seminar was held in order to stimulate participants coming back from that course to apply their lessons from Korea to their individual duties.
