Monrovia, Wednesday, 24 May 2017: The Ministry of Transport in collaboration with the German Technical Cooperation (GIZ) has concluded a 2-week capacity building workshop for personnel of the Divisions of Planning, Policy & Projects, Research & Statistics, Human Resource and Press & Public Affairs of the Ministry of Transport.

The Workshop with the Theme: “Process Mapping” is part of a collaborative agreement between the Ministry and GIZ under the program “Capacity Development for the Transport Sector in Liberia”, ended Wednesday, 24 May 2017 at the Ministry of Transport. 

Addressing the closing session of the Process Mapping Validation Workshop, Mr. Michel Ligthart, GIZ’s Team Leader, gave an overview of the workshop conducted in March and followed by the process mapping workshop to be in line with the ongoing reform of the Ministry. He thanked participants including the Directors of the four Divisions, their staff and representatives of the offices of the Minister as well as the Deputy Minister for Administration and encouraged them to make use of the opportunity provided by these workshops.    

For their part, International and National Consultants, Chris Forlwell and Peggy Varfley Meres, underscored the significance of process mapping. They described process mapping as graphical representation of what activities are performed; who does what and when. They told the participants that once a work process is mapped, each one knows who should do what and in what order.

Concluding, the Consultants thanked the participants for remaining focused during the workshop and urged them to continue to engage themselves through regular practices of what was learned at the workshop. They expressed the hope that the participants will utilize the knowledge acquired for the benefit of the Ministry of Transport.  

Earlier, Transport Minister, Samuel A. Wlue who briefly stopped over at the Validation Workshop thanked the participants for the turnout and active participation. He then expressed the hope that with the knowledge acquired, Administration expects to see practical results in the performances of the Divisions following the workshop.
