National Centre for Good Governance Concludes Capacity Building Programme for Bangladeshi Civil Servants

New Delhi: The 71st batch Capacity Building Programme (CBP) for civil servants of Bangladesh, organized by the National Centre for Good Governance (NCGG) in collaboration with the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), concluded on March 15, 2024, marking the successful completion of a two-week-long training initiative aimed at enhancing administrative capabilities.

The valedictory address, delivered by V. Srinivas, IAS, Secretary, DARPG & DPPW and DG, NCGG, Government of India, emphasized the pivotal role of technology in fostering closer ties between citizens and government entities, aligning with the policy mantra of “Maximum Governance-Minimum Government.” Sinivas underscored India’s commitment to digital empowerment and transformation through initiatives like Digital India, which prioritize effective grievance redressal and service delivery optimization.

During the programme, which saw the participation of 1,500 civil servants from Bangladesh, discussions encompassed a wide array of governance topics, including digital transformation, disaster management, leadership, e-governance, and anti-corruption strategies. Dr. A. P. Singh, the course coordinator, highlighted the diversity of subjects covered, underscoring the comprehensive nature of the training.

One of the highlights of the programme was the exposure visits, which provided participants with firsthand insights into various facets of governance. Visits to institutions such as the district administration in Saharnpur, Forest Research Institute, and the iconic Taj Mahal offered invaluable learning opportunities and enriched the overall training experience.

This initiative is part of NCGG’s broader mandate to extend capacity-building support to civil servants from diverse countries. In partnership with MEA, NCGG has already trained officials from 17 nations, including Kenya, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, and Myanmar. Recognizing the growing demand for such programmes, NCGG is actively expanding its capacity to accommodate more participants, ensuring that nations worldwide can benefit from India’s expertise in governance and administration.

The success of the CBP underscores the commitment of NCGG, MEA, and the Indian government to foster international collaboration and knowledge exchange, ultimately contributing to enhanced governance practices and administrative efficiency on a global scale. The entire programme was executed under the supervision of Dr. A. P. Singh, Course Coordinator, and the dedicated team at NCGG.
