Mr. Arakaza said that as part of the solidarity fund for innovative projects, the French Embassy has implemented the economic and financial governance support project in Burundi.
It is a project, he adds, which makes it possible to support three institutions in particular, the ENA, ISGE and the Court of Auditors. It meant that the teacher trainers of the ENA and the ISGE, being university professors, seek to reinforce their knowledge and to find additional training to that which they hold, to know what is done outside the allow Burundians, in order to share experience with their colleagues from the INS and finance expertise.
The Director General of ENA, indicated that his institution and the ISGE in collaboration with the French Embassy in Burundi, would like all the teacher trainers of the respective schools to be able to participate in this training, but taking into account their expectations. They preferred to share them in groups to have a good participatory quality, specifying that the teacher trainers who did not start in this first series, will participate in any training scheduled for the months of February, March and April 2022.
He further pointed out that the teacher trainers have just had relations with his French colleagues, an aspect of cultural diversity that has just been noticed.
