Bridging Nations through Capacity Building

The NCGG, an autonomous body under India's Department of Administrative Reforms and Public Grievances, Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions, continues to reinforce its role in enhancing governance and public policy on a global scale. The training aims to enrich participants with a comprehensive understanding of India's governance model, focusing on digital transformation and its impact on improving public service delivery and institutional efficiency.

During the inaugural session, NCGG's Director General V Srinivas highlighted the evolution of India's governance strategies and the pivotal role of digital technology in enhancing policy making and service delivery. Emphasizing the importance of transparency and accountability, he outlined how digitization is integral to good governance.

Associate Professor and Course Coordinator BS Bisht detailed the course content, which spans various governance aspects including smart cities, sustainable development, digital governance, and anti-corruption strategies. The programme also features exposure visits to prominent Indian institutions, offering practical insights into the country's administrative and cultural heritage.

This initiative is part of NCGG's broader objective to foster good governance globally, having already trained civil servants from 17 countries. The programme discussed the importance of international collaboration in public administration and policy-making.

The training program not only aims to enhance the capabilities of Cambodian civil servants but also to strengthen bilateral relations and promote knowledge exchange in public policy and governance. With its project-based approach, the NCGG seeks to cultivate skills that are crucial for effective governance and leadership in the modern era.

The ongoing training program at NCGG represents a significant effort in promoting good governance and public policy excellence, contributing to the development of skilled civil service personnel who are essential for the progress and prosperity of their respective countries.
