DCTA trains African professionals on development agenda
The Directorate of Technical Cooperation in Africa (DTCA) has begun the training of African professionals for future development purposes.
Speaking at the opening of a workshop, the Acting Director General of DTCA, Mohammed Kachallah, said the aim of re-engineering African professionals was to promote and develop the continent and promote its technological development through cooperative exchange of high-level African experts and expertise.
“This is derived from an understanding and appreciation of the fact that to achieve any meaningful and sustainable development of Africa, institutions must as a matter of necessity, collaborate with relevant stakeholders in view of the growing trends in globalisation,” he said.
Issues discussed at the workshop focused on bridging the development gap in Africa, database development and enhancement and managing a database of African experts.
In his intervention at the capacity training workshop, which had ‘Reengineering experts for sustainable development of Africa’, as theme, the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Sola Enikanolaye, urged African countries to forge more cooperation with the rest of the world for the continent to further grow its human capital development.
The workshop was expected to develop a database of African professionals for future development purposes.
