A warm welcome to the 49th Fellowship Programme

February 2009

The 49th French-speaking Fellowship Programme was launched in Brussels on Monday 23 February 2009.

This Programme forms part of the work to develop the management capacities of Member administrations in support of Phase II of the Columbus Programme. It is designed to provide extremely promising young managers from Member administrations with training in supervisory and management techniques, so as to help them carry out reform and modernization within their respective administrations in a dynamic and sustainable manner. This latest Programme has brought together 15 participants who were welcomed by the WCO Secretary General.

This introduction served as a prelude to a series of conferences given by WCO experts and to the eight-day Management Course.

The Fellows will then remain at WCO Headquarters until 20 March 2009 in order to complete an in-depth study on a subject of their choice, under the supervision of a Secretariat tutor, and to make recommendations to their respective administrations for possible subsequent implementation. Lastly they will spend a fortnight in one of the Programme’s partner Administrations (Belgium, France, Japan and Switzerland) to round off their study trip.

The Fellowship Programme is funded by the Customs Administrations of France, Japan, Switzerland and by the WCO.
