Position: Senior Economist
Course: PPP and Public Finance Management

I came to AIMS for the first time but before coming I heard the name through a colleague. I came to AIMS to learn about two topics, public private partnership (PPP) and public finance management in two weeks.  The course was spread over the two weeks such that during the first week I learned about what PPP is, and different models of PPP. It was a pleasure coming to AIMS; now I have gained so much knowledge on PPP. I would recommend this institute to my workmates who really want to do PPP. During the second week I did public finance management which was very interesting and well taught. I was able to learn public sector budgeting. I am really grateful to AIMS and would recommend it to colleagues.

[The facilitator] never makes you feel that you are wrong when you make an input that is a bit out of the topic. Coming from here [Ghana] from a country that was isolated and yet making us a part of the system is amazing. Really, I am grateful and thankful to AIMS for a wonderful job well done. Everyone was ready to give a hand immediately.
