Mr. Sayed Mujtaba Ahmadi, Acting Deputy Chief of the Mission met with Mr. Mithun Barua Deputy Registrar (AS) and Dr. Pawan Taneja from Indian Institute of Public Administration (IIPA) on 6th January, 2016 at the Embassy Premises.

Mr. Barua and Dr. Taneja proposed a one month training programme for the civil service officers of Afghanistan especially for the Public Sector Executives. The programme will be conducted in two slots of 15 days each with extensive training sessions. For the initial 15 days, the training programs will be conducted in India and the second slot of 15 days will be conducted outside India. It means that two weeks training programme will be conducted in India and one week outside India (may be in China ), following with one week in one of the developed countries (May be in France). After completion of the one month’s training program the participants have to give a final presentation of what they have learned, which will take two days.

Further Dr. Taneja said that the training programme has four modules:

  1. Strategic leadership
  2. Corporate Governance
  3. Understanding the economic environment
  4. Understanding the leading environment

Mr. Ahmadi appreciated the initiative and welcomed the idea of conducting leadership programmes to the senior public sector executives in Afghanistan. Regarding the funding aspect of it, Mr. Ahmadi suggested that we can have a joint meeting with MEA and funding can also be done from USAID and UNDP. He also recommended having programmes for the women civil servants in the area of capacity building in Afghanistan and expressed appreciation for India’s continued and undeterred support to Afghanistan
