In cooperation with the Suriname Trade and Industry Association (VSB) DECP organised a workshop on communication in the capital Paramaribo. Not only the staff of the VSB participated in the workshop, but also communication managers of the larger companies in Suriname and representatives of 2 ministries and the Central Bank of Suriname.
Communication consultant Roel Smit discussed several communication tools like a newsletter, website, press release, etc. Especially the exercises with a press interview and giving a press conference led to lively discussions and were very much appreciated.
This project falls under the 'Twinning facility' of UTSN, founded in 2008 by the Dutch Ministry of Development Cooperation, with the aim of improving relationships between Surinam and Dutch societies in the next 4 years. (for more information see www.utsn.nl).
