Bilateral Programme

1. Bilateral Programme
 
At bilateral level, all forms of inputs such as training and study courses, dispatching experts experts and development projects have been extended to other developing countries, aiming to respond our partners’ emerging needs or capacity building and development priorities, in the areas that we have capacity and expertise. To ensure that we are meeting their real needs, TICA has encouraged our partners’ participation at all level of programme management (planning/ implementation/M&E), different mechanisms also have been utilized, such as a need assessment/ planning mission for a programme development to our new partners. 
 
                        At present, key development activities are, for instance, the on-going capacity building projects in agriculture, health, and education to escalate human well-being and to stimulate economic development, or the tailor-made training programme to echo other developing countries’ needs in human resources development, and these are mainly proposed by our partners.  List of the recent/on-going projects/activities are as follows :
