KATHMANDU, Oct 12: Government officials and experts from various sectors have underscored the need for sharing knowledge for the progress of society and the country.
The experts were sharing their ideas at a workshop titled 'Knowledge Sharing Workshop' organized by KOICA Alumni Association of Nepal (KAAN), with the support of Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), in the capital on Thursday.
In the program, Deputy Country Director of KOICA, Chang SeoHee highlighted the key aspects of Korea's economic development and the role of skilled human resource in nation-building.
She cited different laws and their strict implementation by the political leaders and the citizens that led Korea to its present position. She further stated that the local government body should work with full cooperation to strengthen the development process in Nepal.
Similarly, Secretary of the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock Development Yubak Dhoj GC talked about the importance of knowledge sharing, noting that these kinds of sharing programs should reach the wider range of audience in the coming days. He added that with the country embracing federalism, all should think of more appropriate and practical ways to bring the change.
In the workshop, two research papers “Perception to Adaptation of Climate Change in Nepal: An Empirical Analysis Using Multivariate Probit Model” and “An Analysis of Fertility Decision and Son Preference in Nepal” were jointly presented by the two organizations. There was also a presentation where one of the KOICA fellows shared how what they learned in the Fellowship Program can be implemented in the context of Nepal.
All three presenters had attended the KOICA Fellowship Program in 2016-2017 and are currently working for the Government of Nepal. Agriculture Secretary GC and Deputy Country Director of KOICA SeoHee were the Chief Guests at the function.
