(ZIZ)–Permanent Secretaries and other senior civil servants are taking part in Module 2 of the Caribbean Leadership Project’s Development Programme.
It’s a government initiative aimed at promoting a more prosperous Caribbean by training the men and women of the public sector.
Louise Clement, Co-chair of CLP Project Steering Committee noted that the international climate demands that public sector officials develop innovative ways to chart the way forward for the region.
She says, “It is clear that the regional and national public sectors and the quality of its institutions and human resources can play a significant role in steering the region and the countries in these difficult times.
Prime Minister, the Right Hon Dr Denzil Douglas outlined how strategic partnerships can transform the economy of the federation and the region.
“If public service excellence is our goal, and we know that it is, sharing and collaboration must be the order of the day in Caribbean public sectors,” the Prime Minister said.
The CLP is a seven-year, $20 million project, funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development, Canada to support the leadership and economic development training needs of regional and national public sectors in 12 CARICOM countries.
The project also targets key regional institutions which play a pivotal role in advancing regional integration and economic development.
