Infrastructure projects, such as school buildings, basic health clinics, administrative buildings, irrigational canals, bridges and small roads projects play a decisive role in helping to improve the social and economic development of communities.
The main objectives of the training were to help departments responsible for small to medium-sized infrastructure projects, implemented by the Afghanistan National Development budget or contributions from donors.
With the knowledge they gained, engineers responsible for infrastructure projects in administrative roles will be able to integrate quality into all aspects of infrastructure project planning, implementation and supervision.
In turn, line departments will be able to manage the quality of the infrastructure the government provides.
The ceremony marking the close of the training was hosted by the Director for the Department of Economy, Mr. Abdul Ghafor Ferogh with Afghan-German Cooperation representatives attending.
