A workshop to enhance public administration capacity was held in Dong Ha City, central Quang Tri province on June 29-30 as part of the Haeng Bok (Happy) Programme funded by the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA).

The event was jointly organised by KOICA, the Haeng Bok Programme office in Quang Tri and Kyung Hee University from the Republic of Korea (RoK).

It was intended to strengthen the public administration performance of civil servants at the grassroots level towards a transparent and effective public administration system.

At the workshop, leading professors from Kyung Hee University focused their talks on public policy building and the socio-economic development strategy of the RoK.

The attendees also discussed challenges to public administration governance at local levels and learned from the Rok’s experience in the field.

This year, the Haeng Bok Programme has been supporting seven communes in the province to reduce poverty and improve local incomes.

The programme has provided local people with agricultural training and consultations in disaster prevention and climate change adaption while supporting healthcare services.-VNA
