Posted in: Regional News by admin | 11 December 2015 | 5522

    Public procurement practitioners and policy-makers in Trinidad and Tobago will enhance their expertise in public procurement at a five-day CARIFORUM/EU training course, scheduled for 14-18 December, 2015 in Port-of-Spain.

    An output of the 10th EDF funded CARIFORUM/EU Capacity-Building Project, the training is one of several to be held throughout CARIFORUM member states, over the life of the project.

    Targeting current and future practitioners, the training is aimed at creating the foundation for sustainability in the field of Public Procurement through close collaboration with relevant institutions and experts in the region.

    Under the guidance of Dr. Stephen Woolcock (LSE) and regional expert, Adrian Chin, practitioners and policy-makers will be exposed to developments in the field, including the tools to develop professional procurement as well as international best practices within which national procurement policies operate.

    The CARIFORUM/EU Capacity-Building Project is being implemented by a consortium led by Equinoccio (Spain) and includes the London School of Economics (LSE), SGS and Maastricht School of Management (Netherlands).

    It is expected that the Capacity-Building Project will enable CARIFORUM member states to meet their EPA commitments in the areas of Competition, Procurement and Customs and Trade Facilitation and will contribute to their beneficial integration in the world economy.
