For many years DECP has been cooperating with East African employers’ organisations. Country managers and experts have paid visits to Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Burundi, Malawi and Zambia on a regular basis, conducting workshops, trainings and advisory visits. Learning with each other and from each other can be stimulated by getting to know each other’s work environment better as well. DECP therefore decided to organise a study visit to the Netherlands. A high-level programme would allow the participants to get acquainted with the working methods of employers’ organisations, sector organisations, the Social Economic Council and more. The DECP staff finalized the last preparations just before the Christmas holiday in 2019 and was excited about welcoming their partners in early January. The study visit took place from 8 to 10 January.
