during the closing ceremony last Dec. 13, 2013.
The training was conducted because the agency needs to equip and update the knowledge of their technical staff in order to enhance its ability to coordinate the development planning and policy formulation process. Because of this, NEDA-CARAGA Region solicited technical assistance from USeP – School of Applied Economics (SAEc) through their development training program for planners and policy makers.
The training is aimed at making the participants understand the importance of economics and apply the principles learned at the workplace. It was intended to develop competency and skills of NEDA Caraga Staff in the field of basic economics. Specifically, the training was aimed to engaged participants with contemporary economic issues and scenarios and enable them to have an economic perspective of these events; and make them understand the importance of economics and appreciate its applicability in the following sectors: economic, social, infrastructure and governance.
