Five locals have been awarded scholarships to undertake long term and short term trainings in Korea.
Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) yesterday presented the scholarship recipients their awards and held a pre-departure briefing at the KOICA office.
The five are Jenifer Kela (short term training on Aviation security and safety), Oliver Oli and Cliff Sekepae Pada (Disease prevention and management), McDonald Bule Hiva (Food security and Agriculture development), and Jackson Henry Uruhimae (Urban and Reginal development).
Those with long term training are to undertake their master’s degree.
During the pre departure orientation, Lee Sunwoo on behalf of the KOICA said the Program is KOICA’s main project to support partner countries to boost human resources development.
“The Primary objective of the program is to share Technical skills and knowledge as well as to build capacities for sustainable soci-economic development.”
Solomon Islands Government has established its relation with the Korean Government and KOICA since 1991.
And through this relationship, the country has been benefiting from KOICA through various aid programs and development projects.
