 AUSTRALIA INVESTS IN YOUNG AFRICAN DIPLOMATS 

Thirty young diplomats from Swaziland, Tanzania and Zambia have received their graduation certificates after an intensive three week training course in Pretoria. The diplomatic training course was part of a development program that was jointly supported by the University of Pretoria and the University of Queensland.

Speaking at the Graduation Ceremony on Friday 15 July, Australia's High Commissioner, H.E Ann Harrap said "Congratulations to all of you for doing what we asked you to do in the beginning. We wanted you to jump in the deep end and that's exactly what you've done."


The training has been provided by the Australia-Africa Partnerships Facility (AAPF) which is managed by Dr Frank Thompson, First Secretary at the Australian Government's Agency for International Development (AusAID) in Pretoria.  "The aim of this Facility", says Dr Thompson, "is to develop partnerships between Australian and African institutions that contribute to achieving African development objectives and we're getting ready to support a second workshop in Accra, Ghana from 15 August - 2 September."


The next course will cater for 30 candidates from Ghana, Liberia and Sierra Leone - countries that have actively sought diplomatic development opportunities from the AAPF.
