The Mekong Delta province of Bac Lieu has asked for the Indian Institute of Public Administration to offer assistance in training local government staff in agricultural development, urban management and e-governance.

At a working session with the institute’s visiting delegation on January 15, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Council Le Thanh Hung also expressed his hope for more collaboration with the Indian side in scientific research and graduate and post-graduate education.

Prof. Vinod Kumar Shama from the institute said he and his colleagues want to extend their cooperation with Mekong Delta provinces, including Bac Lieu, in training high quality human resources.

Suggestions from regional province leaders will be gathered by the Ho Chi Minh National Academy for Politics and Public Administration to devise a cooperation framework with the Indian Institute of Public Administration in the coming time.-VNA
