AIT Extension Opens Representative Office in Kathmandu, Nepal

AIT Extension has opened its new Representative Office in Kathmandu, Nepal. The Nepal Representative Office will contribute to AIT Extension’s expanding professional education services in Nepal. 

The recent agreement between AIT and Foundation for Development Management (FDM) has enabled AIT Extension to set up the AITE Representative Office on the premises of FDM in Kathmandu. This initiative signals AIT Extension’s willingness to expand its regional presence, and reach and assist more organizations around the region. 

The Representative Office which is located at JDA Complex (Level II), Bagh Durbar, Kathmandu is managed by Dr. Shailendra Sigdel, former Senior Program Specialist with AIT Extension. Dr. Sigdel was appointed AIT Extension Country Representative for Nepal in November 2008. 

The Nepal Representative Office will design and implement capacity building and professional development programs for public, private and NGO sectors in Nepal and in Thailand. Courses on banking risk management for senior executives of different financial institutions in Nepal are already planned for May 2010 (in collaboration with the Development Bankers Association of Nepal). Likewise, a professional development course on result-based management will be organized in May 2010 in collaboration with Nepal Engineers Association. The office will also coordinate implementation of recently signed Memoranda of Understanding with the Nepal Bank Training Institute, the Nepal Administrative Staff College, and the South Asian Institute of Management.
