The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

KOICA Er­bil Of­fice re­ceived two teams of ex­perts re­gard­ing the im­ple­men­ta­tion of two projects in KRG Re­gion, namely, KIPA (Kur­dis­tan In­sti­tute for Pub­lic Ad­min­is­tra­tion) and the school projects in Kha­bat, Er­bil & Hal­abja, Su­lay­maniyah gov­er­norates on 8th and 9th of Fe­bru­ary 2014, re­spec­tively.

The Project for the Ca­pac­ity Build­ing of the Kur­dis­tan In­sti­tute of Pub­lic Ad­min­is­tra­tion is a co-bud­geted project where KOICA has al­lo­cated a to­tal amount of six (6) mil­lion US$ dol­lars for pro­vid­ing equip­ment & train­ing for its build­ing and of­fi­cials in or­der to im­prove the per­for­mance of KRG’s of­fi­cials through sys­tem­atic train­ing and strengthen their in­sti­tu­tional and in­fras­truc­tural ca­pac­i­ties. The main pur­pose of the ex­perts visit was to kick off dis­cus­sions on the frame­work of the over­all project, the de­tailed work plan, and the es­tab­lish­ment of the Project Man­age­ment Team (PMT) con­sist­ing of both Korean ex­perts and KRG of­fi­cials.

The Project for the Es­tab­lish- ment of Mod­ern Ba­sic and Sec­ondary Schools in Su­lay­maniyah and Er­bil of Kur­dis­tan Re­gion is an­other project where KOICA has al­lo­cated a to­tal amount of 9.3 mil­lion US$ dol­lars for its com­plete im­ple­men­ta­tion. The main aim of this project is to im­prove the ed­u­ca­tional in­fra­struc­ture in Er­bil & Su­lay­maniyah, and to con­trib­ute to hu­man re­sources de­vel­op­ment in the whole KRG Re­gion, as well. This time, the ex­perts vis­ited the two gov­er­norates in or­der to re­view the ba­sic de­sign, per­form ge­o­log­i­cal sur­veys, and dis­cuss the fu­ture plans for the suc­cess­ful im­ple­men­ta­tion of the two school projects.

Since its in­au­gu­ra­tion in 2004, strength­en­ing the ca­pac­ity build- ing, en­hanc­ing the close co­op­er­a­tion be­tween Korea and Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Govern­ment, and pro­mot­ing the friendly and co­op­er­a­tive ties be­tween the two par­ties has been KOICA’s main fo­cus in im­ple­ment­ing var­i­ous projects in KRG Re­gion in gen­eral.
