NEE and SCE to deliver executive training programme for Guinean officials​

Published on: 04-Dec-2017

​​The Singapore Cooperation Enterprise (SCE) has signed a contract with Nanyang Executive Education (NEE) to design and deliver an executive training programme for government officials from the Republic of Guinea. A delegation from SCE and the Republic of Guinea visited NTU on 3 October for the signing ceremony.

The delegation was led by Mr Ibr​ahima Fofana, Minister of State for Investment and Public-Private Partnership, Republic of Guinea. Professor Er Meng Hwa, Vice President, International Affairs (NTU), hosted the delegation. The guests also visited The Hive, which is an iconic building located next to Nanyang Business School and displays NTU’s commitment towards sustainability. They also got to understand first-hand about NTU’s flipped classroom concept and the resources needed to support this teaching pedagogy.​

“We are glad to be part of the capability development effort of the Republic of Guinea, and we look forward to sharing the best-in-class business practices in nurturing global leaders for a sustainable world” said NEE’s director Ms Siau Leong, on what NEE and SCE aim to achieve with this significant collaboration. 

By being here in NTU, and in Singapore, officials from Guinea can look forward to receiving world class education, and be able to experience Singapore – its systems, policies, thinking – through company visits, cultural visits, and day-to-day interaction with Singaporeans. 

Locals will have plenty to learn from these exchanges themselves too, as “the world is about the exchange of ideas, and turning ideas into reality that improve the lives of people”, according to Ms Leong. 

NEE has been training participants from Asia and Africa, and other parts of the world too. Interactions from such diverse backgrounds are fascinating because good ideas are everywhere and it is only from such interactions that learning can be magnified and bonds can be deepened between private sectors and government bodies. 

NEE looks forward to welcoming the first batch of Guinean participants in 2018. We wish them all the best.
