According to a release received by Voice of Indonesia on Friday, Murdiyanto hope that this training can build strong and harmonious relations between the Republic of Indonesia and the Republic of Namibia. The participation of participants from the Namibian Maritime and Fisheries Institute (NAMFI) in this training has enabled the exchange of knowledge, experience and best practices between the two countries.
"It is hoped that this program will not only have a positive impact on individual participants, but also encourage closer bilateral cooperation between the two countries in various aspects, including maritime education, human resource development and the transportation sector," he said.
Meanwhile, Director of International Development Cooperation (KSPI), Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Maria Renata Hutagalung said that apart from the benefits for professional duties as instructors, TOT IMO Model Course 6.09 participants also had the opportunity to get to know Indonesia and its culture.
"Because this training was carried out in Indonesia, the participants experienced the Indonesian environment, which allowed them to get to know and experience the traditions, customs and friendliness of the Indonesian people," he said.
Maria also said that through interactions with local residents and cultural activities held during the training, participants gained insight into Indonesian culture, including culinary diversity, traditional arts, music and dance. This cultural introduction not only enriches their experience, but also strengthens understanding and appreciation for local Indonesian culture (cross-cultural).
"Through this training, the Republic of Indonesia and the Republic of Namibia can strengthen bilateral relations and continue mutually beneficial cooperation, creating a harmonious climate for the exchange of knowledge and experience in the future," he concluded//VOI
