Ms Psyche Kennett, Human Resources Development Consultant of the German Development Co-operation' (GTZ) Performance Improvement Project (PIP) participated as a guest.

"We are not using the available opportunity to serve the rural people. Capacity building is the crux of the problem. Officers should adopt inspirational management technique," Mr.Rangarajah said.

Mr.Rangarajah added that managers should have a clear vision and the vision should be shared with others for effective implementation of projects.

"The purpose of the training programme is to improve the skill and knowledge of the officers and to upgrade the activities of the department," said Ms. D.D.Wijeludchumy, Provincial Director of the Department of Rural Development in her opening address.

The objective of the formation of rural development societies is to formulate and implement development schemes to uplift the living conditions of the rural people, she added.

Currently most of the 2,500 rural development societies in the province are not functioning properly due to lack of proper supervision by experienced officers and shortage of cadres, she said.
