The Asian Development Bank (ADB) funded North East Community Restoration Development project (NECORD) in collaboration with German Technical Co-operation (GTZ) is to hold seven capacity building workshops in the districts of NorthEast province for small and medium size contractors working in the northeast development projects. Workshops are aimed to enhance the knowledge of the local contractors about the construction industry, sources said.

The first in the series of workshops will be inaugurated in Trincomalee at Uppuveli Pastoral Centre on January 16. The main objective of the three day workshop is to build up capacity for smaller and medium size contractors who are working for ADB and World Bank (WB) funded development projects in the NorthEast province and to address problems they face in the construction industry, NECORD sources said.

The second workshop will be conducted in Jaffna on February 6,7 and 8 followed by Mullaitivu on February 18,19 and 20, Killinochchi on February 21,22 and 23, Vavuniya on March 2,3 and 4, Batticaloa on March 6,7 and 8 and Amparai on March 16,17 and 18, sources said.

The workshop will be conducted in Tamil medium in close co-operation with the Institute for Construction Training and Development (ICTAD) and the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA).

The Chief Secretary of the NEPC Mr.S.Rangarajah and NECORD Project Director Mr.T.Lankaneson are expected to participate in the inaugural event of the workshop in Trincomalee, sources said.

At the end of three-day workshop a certificate, jointly signed by ICTAD, NECORD, CIMA and GTZ will be awarded to each participant who followed all the sessions of the workshop and have passed a test conducted in multiple choices at the end of the workshop.

Problems faced by contractors in working with ADB and WorldBank funded development projects would be aired at the workshop by representatives of each district contractors' association.

Likewise government officials from relevant departments would also table their problems they confront when working with contractors, NECORD sources said.
