More than 40 public servants from ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) were recently trained in capacity building under the sponsorship of the Korean government on ways to better manage human resource in the public sector.
Participants were drawn from institutions such as the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission, Office of the Head of Civil Service, Forestry Commission and Food and Drugs Authority.
The initiative aimed at equipping the participants with the skill to explore new development directions in management systems among other objectives.
It was also to prepare participants on ways to present policy proposals and recommendations that would help deliver the needed changes linking performance to wages in the public sector.
At the opening of the training programme, the Korean Ambassador to Ghana, H.E. Sungsoo Kim, said the initiative formed part of the Korean government’s efforts to boost bilateral ties between the two countries.
The Country Director of KOICA, Mr. Yu-Kyum Kim, said the programme was aimed at strengthening the human resource capacities in KOICA partner countries.
The Deputy Minister of Employment and Labour Relations, Mr Bright Wireko-Brobbey, expressed his gratitude to the government of Korea for supporting Ghana to achieve a more efficient public sector. He said the training programme was in line with current on-going public sector reforms in Ghana aimed at sharpening the public sector to enable it to serve as a catalyst for greater productivity, job creation and national development.
